Tonight I rubbed two racks of spares with an herb rub (no sugar) containing:
They were coated with some olive oil, rubbed with the rub, wrapped in plastic and are in the fridge. My plan for tomorrow was going to be to smoke them for about 3 hours using some hickory and apple in the 225-250 range, then wrap them for 2 hours and then unwrap for the final hour (3-2-1). Now since this is an herb rub and lacks the sweet element, what if anything should I use for a foiling liquid? With my sweet and spicy rub I use apple juice but that doesn't seem to match the flavor profile I am going for. Thanks in advance for your help!
