Cider Mop Spray

  • SERVINGS: makes 2 1/4 cups
  • FAST

Barbecuers traditionally use a little mop-like brush to swab slow-roasting pork shoulders, beef briskets or spareribs with a liquidy sauce. Adam Perry Lang suggests using a clean spray bottle to simplify the process. He advises waiting to spritz the meat until the dry rub has had a chance to form a nice crust, usually after two to five hours of barbecuing.
