    I am thinking of making some babybacks with some rootbeer. Anyone use sodas such as cherry dr. pepper, coke, rootbeer in the foiling process of ribs or any other meat?

    if so, do you use any rubs with it?

    Well, I haven't personally done it but there are some twists going on out there. I know many down in the South do a lot with colas and hams....why not a butt or some ribs. I typed in root beer in the handy dandy search bar and some posts popped up....I'm sure if you tried to narrow the search more would show up.

    I foil my briskets with some regular Dr. Pepper in the foil sauce and back in the smoker.  Tastes great!

    I always foil with Dr Pepper (regular) It turns out great!
  5. i never foil but i do spritz with Dr.Pepper cherry and a few other ingredients.. everyone asks what else i put in the bottle...haha. i even bring the bottle to work and spray down pulled pork sammys with it while the hungry masses sit and wonder. lol. i even use dr.pepper cherry in my can chickens.
  6. Yeah, I spritz things sometimes with a mix of apple juice and dr. pepper with a couple seasonings for good measure.
  7. i like how u gave 2 ingredients and then left enough for us to ponder also...haha.
  8. I have used Mountian Dew in 3-2-1 method smoking ribs and also when foiling pork butts and my favorite beer when no soda is available .
