Alternative to Apple Cider V and apple juice

  1. Hi guys,

    Currently smoking two st louis cuts in the Bradley smoker.

    I dont have any apple cider vinegar or apple juice to spritz before i wrap the ribs for the 2 hours wrapped part.

    Can anyone recommend an alternative? I've got some white wine vinegar in teh cupboard. i was thinking maybe a mixture of that and some water? i'm not too bothered about the lack of flavour it might just looking for similar tenderness and moistness.

    Will this work? and/or will the white wine vinegar taste gross??

    IMHO, yes the white vinegar will taste gross. BBQ sauce, if you have some, will work or any fruit juice, maple syrup, butter and sugar, hot sauce[​IMG]. FWIW A lot of cooks do not add any moisture when foiling and get good results.
