    I am going to do a brisket tomorrow and I am going to use Southern Comfort & Apple juice for the baste. Any tips on the mix of the two? 50/50?

    Remember I gotta save some for me! The So Co that is!
  2. 50/50 or thereabouts is what I use. Lately I've been using spiced rum and cherry juice. It's pretty darned good. I've also added a little Worcestershire sauce to the spritz with good results on briskets. Good luck!

    I go as close to 50/50 as I can as well. I like to use any type of rum and apple juice. Never done a brisket but works well on pork and chuckies.

    I go 1/3 whiskey, 2/3 apple or cherry juice. I just rather sip my whiskey[​IMG].

    I mix mine 70/30 apple juice to whiskey. It must taste good mixed in order to taste right after the smoke in my opinion...Happy Smokes Billbo

    Start with 50/50.

    Also, be careful about how many times you open the lid on that Brinkman. Those things are tough enough to work with without the lid being frequently opened.

    I allways use around a 70 / 30 mix juice to jack.
    i add worsterchire and about a cap full of liquid crab boil.
    For pork and poultry i add molasses too.
