    when smoking meats when would a mop or a bast be used.?
    when grilling I use a beer mop on larger pieces of meat when ever I turn it and on the rotissiere when ever I put more coals or I think I should.
    I would guess that when using a dry rub. you would not bast or mop. Not sure. but when not using a dry type rub you would mop / bast a lot.. or in smoking you just do not use bast / mops.than you..

    Go ahead and baste/spray after your rub has set, won't hurt anything at all. or just do it as you do with your other cooking methods.

    I do as buzz said, then if I mop, I mop sauce in the last 1/2 - 1 hour, works for me. good luck
