I am cooking shoulders for about 30 people this weekend and had a quick question about mopping on the egg.
Here is my question:
I have cooked around 100 shoulders and had my method down pact on my old gas smoker. I would spray mop the shoulder every hour during the cook with apple juice and apple cider vinegar and loved the way the bark would come out.
I have only cooked 1 shoulder on the Egg and it turned out fine. I did not Mop, and while the bark was good it just didn't have the same flavor as my gas smoker.
My question is does anyone Mop their shoulders on the egg? I read that it was not required as the egg holds moisture better than other smokers but I plan on mopping to get that flavor I am looking for in the bark.
Any reason not to mop on the egg?
