What can I spritz meat with while smoking?

We're here again to answer common questions that we often get asked in-store and online. 

Spritz MeatWe often get asked what the best spritz is when smoking in the offset or any other smoker. What I tend to use is apple cider vinegar but water will work as well, or a 50/50 mix. It is important to spritz the meat every half hour to 45 minutes to prevent it from drying out. It also adds a coating that allows the smoke to travel over the meat and stick to it. Because the surface is slightly cooled by the liquid being spritz on, any sugars in the rub are also cooled down slightly which prevents the rub from turning black.
