Are there many alternative liquids that can be used when doing the 3-2-1 method for pork ribs? That is, the liquid put in the foil with the ribs during the "2" phase. I have been using apple juice (and it works just fine ) but often I don't have any on hand. Rather than going out to buy a large container of apple juice (with a lot of it going unused) I was wondering if any of the other liquids that I often do have on hand would be OK to use.
Any opinions/experience on whether any of the altenatives listed below would be OK to use or if they would result in a certain disaster?
- White wine
- Water (perhaps flavored with seasonings)
- Cola (Pepsi)
- Lemon soda (Sprite)
- Orange juice
- Nothing at all
