You can use something simple as just apple juice... or mix in some cider vinegar... I have recently been using a mixture of Pomegranate Juice, Red Wine, & Cranberry Juice... I seem to like that right now... I recently started moping so i have been experimenting on them...

Think of a taste you like and mess around with that...

Hi Tim....The mop and the dry seasonings need to compliment each other.
I usually stay very basic, and consider the meat I am mopping...
An amount of Water...
1/2 as much vinegar...
Some fat...not much needed on a butt. Corn/olive/peanut oil ~~ bacon fat/butter
A few shots of Worcestershire..
Some salt & pepper
2-4 Tbls of your dry seasonings.

I'll go simple try 3 parts Apple Juice to 1 part Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. Oh and save some of the rum for the cook biggrin.gif

Now I have always used apple juice and cider vinegar. Maybe a little more juice then vinegar and spritz it about every hour or so.
