Mop Sauce

  1. I am looking for a good Mop Sauce to use. Does anyone have any they would like to share. I am not having luck finding one that I like. I have not tried any from SMF. I am not having much luck finding them.

    It depends on what you are mopping. Different meats require different mops/marinades/sprays......Lots of rules on mops, no vinegar on beef, lots of vinegar on pork, chicken should be sweet[​IMG] . If you get right to it, it's a personal choice thing[​IMG]

    Here is a link to a marinade/mop sauce that Tulsa Jeff uses on brisket's:


    On ribs and butts I like to use a mixture of apple juice, jack daniels and EVOO(extra vigin olive oil) in a spray bottle.

    I have a mop sauce that I use for brisket's but it has a very small amount of apple cider vinegar in it [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]and seems to be a bit contraversal, but it works for me. Let me know if you would like it.
  4. I also would not mind trying your mop sauce if you don't mind.

    Hear is the thread that has the mop sauce recipe in it. Also some great points of view on the benifits vs drawbacks of basting/mopping.

    I should also say that I only mop on the last 1/3 of the smoke, you want to make sure the bark is nice and set.

    Sometimes I use 1/3 olive oil, 1/3 Worcestershire, and 1/3 lemon juice. When doing this, I like to add some of the rub that I put on the meat to begin with. You can always add a little dark beer or light beer or any beer. Someone said "beer goes well with everything from heart aches to hot dogs".
