BBQ Mop

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Looking for opinions on a simple all purpose basting mop (chicken, pork , beef). I have always used quality apple juice in a spray bottle.

Thanks :smoking:

I always use a bunch of herbs as a mop for BBQ. I've used dill, parsley, mint or rosemary with great success. They impart a great flavor as well and then you don't have to worry about cleaning a mop (what a pain that is).

I don't like mops, they suck up too much sauce and don't seem to spread it very well. i use a small natural hair brush with a 3 inch head. I had a chef that had a nice silicone brush that did a decent job. at home when doing a small bbq i just use a small soup or gravy ladle.

I was just wondering the other day about mops. What do mops do anyway? I think the most important thing is that mops help to keep the temperature down at the surface of the meat.

My mop is a 50/50 mix of olive oil (use the cheap stuff) and cider vinegar. It helps the bark get really crunchy. I only mop ribs and chicken, butts and brisket I usually don't bother because they self baste from the fat cap.

Hello Mary

Do you bring your mix to a simmer or just shake in a mist bottle? (ps.. r u the mary from the old klose pit forum)

This might sound very amateur but, what is a mop?

I just keep it in a bowl and use a cheap paintbrush(real bristles). Stir with the brush and slop on. Yup I used to be on there, I miss that forum.

lol, well it would seem that a "mop" is akin to a bbq sauce. unlike the actual miniature mop i have seen for applying bbq sauce, that i mentioned i didn't like in my previous post. learned a new bit of cooking slang though

It's a liquid or marinade to apply during the smoke or cook or bbq. Just get yourself a cheap brush at the local hardware store to apply it. Otherwise slice leek leaves parallel to the long axis to obtain a "brush applicator".

I might have misread the question, I thought the OP was asking about a tool to use as a mop, but might it have been a recipe he/she was asking for?

In that case I always use lemony mops. Lemon juice, olive oil, a squirt of mustard to help it emulsify, and lots of herbs. I usually also mush in some roasted garlic or chili flakes and hot sauces.

Here are two mops worth pondering:

1. Mop at the Virtual Weber Bullet

2. Mop offered at AlliedKenco.
