    To Mop or Not To Mop

    Hey all, doing a beef brisket this weekend with some MH Texas Mop Sauce. I was curious if people here typically mop or not mop when they are smoking brisket? My cooking setup will be a SNS in a Weber Kettle so I should be in the 225-250 range for the duration of the cook so it shouldn't be too hot/dry. Thanks!

    I like the mop sauce but don't mop, in fact I have evolved to running brisket nekkid the whole way, well, except for the rub. The mop sauce is nice on the side.

      Never mopped, honestly never thought of it for brisket.
      do brisket combination on the smoker and foil wrapped in the oven so moistness has never been an issue.

        I echo the above comments. I never mopped, don't mop, but will use a mop sauce on the side for dipping sometimes when eating brisket.

          I don't mop. I do make MH's sauce and serve on the side.

            I mopped in the past. But I felt it cooled down the meat and as a result, extended the cook time. Maybe I’m full of it on that. But regardless now I do not mop. Like the others, I have it available on the side For dipping though.

              I spritz brisket, but don't mop it. The only thing I mop is Malcom Reed's BBQ chicken because mopping is part of that recipe.

                I have never mopped and have stopped spritzing. I even heat sauces for basting at the end of a rib cook. Every time I open the lid for a short time, the temp drops. It takes a while for it to recover - sometimes faster than others. And a cold sauce or mop or spritz will lower the temp of your protein.

                At least that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

                  7 pitmaster members can't be wrong -- no mop it is. Definitely will have the mop sauce on the side. Thanks for the feedback!

                    I agree, mop sauce on the side. Let that bugger run nekkid all the way.

                      No mop, I too use a Texas dry rub. Plus I started injecting, I do use an apple juice spritz. Every time you cook add to or try something new. That's the best part
