mopping sauce

I was just curious what type of mopping sauce people are using on their Q. The one I use the most is a mixture of veg oil, apple cider vinegar and Dr. Pepper. What do you use?

I don't use them either for Q. I have occasionally on meat I was smoking to turn into something else (not to eat as is) but even that's pretty rare.

I have only used one ... where I add some rub to cider vinegar ... I like the results but it seems to add a bit to the cook duration

I go with a spray bottle with apple juice for butts, sometimes a little vinegar mixed in. I don't spray often, and try not to at all until the rub sets.

No mopping here, I'll spray with AJ, but only if I have to go in for some other reason.

Somebody else pointed out that the mop or spray pretty much just runs off the meat without being absorbed.

Okay, that makes sense.

Mopping doesn't help moisture retension but is used to add layers of flavor on meat. Each time you apply it (needs to have sugar in some form) it becomes part of bark.

Moisture is the function of finish temps and techniques.

I do sirloin tip roasts that have become a favorite for large caterings, I use mopping technique to flavor the bark from the start to finish (about every 45 min) other than sirloins I do mop much at all.
