Last saturday I smoked up some ribs for a birthday party I had to go to. I got this idea in my head to try using a drip pan with beer, apple juice, and some garlic. After a couple of hours of fat rendering and some of the rub falling in the pan, I would use this as my mop and not foil. As it turned out, this worked pretty good. Ended up using a turkey baster to apply the mop. The ribs In the smoker with a little extra rub and the drip pan And we're off with with some preburnt oak chunks Ready to come out Close up Cut one off to snap a pic (and sample) Love them beefies!! Gotta play with the drip pan ingredients now. Lasted only 5 mins at the party after being cut apart.....not bad!!
