While glazing with barbecue sauce in the last few minutes adds fast flavor, mop sauces are best for flavoring tough meats you’re going to be cooking for long periods of time.
Thinner than barbecue sauces, mop sauces are typically made from beer, vinegar or apple cider, and are basted onto the meat every 20 minutes using a small mop or brush, ensuring maximum flavor infusion throughout the cooking process.
