    I totally forgot to get apple juice when I was in town today and now I have nothing to spritz my ribs with. I was thinking about Mountain dew or coke since they should have plenty of sugar. I have some booze, coke, Mt. Dew and thats about it around here. Any thoughts? I have always used a spritz on my ribs I guess maybe this will be the time to experiment without a spritz.

    Its time to spritz but I just don't know if I want to put it on there or not. I think I will just go without this time.

    >>>Ever used Mt. Dew for a spritz?<<<

    yes. it works and it is good.

    in my opinion, it gives it a bright, florida-style twist.

    Ok you guys talked me into it. My wifes rack of ribs is getting a spritz of Mt. Dew origial flavor because she doesn't like them "Trigg style" (foiled with brown sugar, butter and honey). She isn't a sweet rib person so I am not going to foil hers at all. Mine just went into the foil with the Trigg love and I am going to continue to spritz hers every half hour or so. This will be a good test of different methods and we can see which we like better. I am still trying to get the perfect rib ready for our family get together this summer where we are going to have a rib cook off.

    I have spritzed my hams with Fanta Pineapple soda. I have used Dr. Pepper on my ribs. Pepsi on a chuckie and on and on. Smoking is not a science, but an art. Even if you fail, you get to eat great meat. Your smoking is only limited by your mind.

    I use 7-Up or Sierra mist in and on my pork butts.

    Maybe Mountain Dew would be worth a try next time.

    Looks like you've already got your answer but I would agree with grampyskids -- everything is fair game!!



    The bottom rack of these was spritzed and foiled with Black Cherry Dr. Pepper then glazed with a mixture of Black Cherry Dr. Pepper, marachino cherry juice and some Sweet Baby Ray's. The top rack had a peanut butter/honey glaze on it.

    Try what ever you think might taste good to you. You'd be surprised what you come up with. [​IMG]
