    When I take the ribs out of Smoker to wrap them in foil, I spray (moisten)  them lightly with water. I read sometimes that some people use Apple Juice for this step and I am thinking that I have read that some use Apple Cider Vinegar for that step.

    Apple Cider Vinegar .... do people really use that when wrapping the ribs in foil, or did I simply read that wrong somewhere?

    I rarely foil. But when I have I don't add anything. When I un-foil there is always a 1/4 cup of liquid.

    With that said to answer your question, yes you can use Apple cider vinegar.
  3. I wrap pork ribs. I do add perhaps 1/4 cup of apple juice. I use the small plastic containers so I don't feel obligated to drink very much. I also add Brown sugar and some of my rub. I place the ribs meat down then wrap tightly. Dirt sailor is right about the liquid. That shows how much the meat is rendering. I think the amount of liquid is proportional to the pull back.  Jted
