Sprizt or Mop Sauce for Brisket

Discussion in 'Beef' started by fished, Jul 1, 2015.

  1. Looking for a little advice.  I'm doing about a 17 pound brisket this weekend.  Normally I just put my rub on it and smoke it till done.  I was thinking about doing a sprizt or a mopping sauce this time around.  I did find a recipe for a beer mopping sauce that sounds good.  Will doing either one affect the bark?  I don't wrap it, but going to do that this time after it's cooked for the rest time.  If anyone does do it can you recommend a recipe?

    Thanks and a happy fourth to everyone.

    Mop every 2 hours for 3/4 of the estimated cook time then let the Bark set. Here is a recipe you may like...JJ
