Rib spritz

I know many of y'all don't but those that do... What do you use? If you foil, what do you add?

    i just cook my ribs dry for myself and family but if im doing a big rib cook i do the sticky ribs in foil staying close to drbbq's method, it seems to go over well with bigger crowds

    @henapple I dont normally spritz, when I do foil I put Parkay, honey and brown sugar meat side down in the foil for about a hour for a sticky wet rib!! I myself like the dry ones!!

    I mix up 1/3 apple cider vinegar, 1/3 Sweet Baby Rays (or fav), and 1/3 Franks Original.  I put some in the foil during that period and then baste a few times when I unfoil for the last hour +-.

    Same here for spritz if I feel they are drying out some.

    No foil for me EVER. Original plan is always 4-0-1 and adjust from there. Last time I went 4.5-0-1

    Much depends on the rib cut. BB not so much, SLS always spritzed. Rub is pretty heavy so spritz is 3 parts apple juice and 1 part apple cider vinegar. Moisture only to work with the sugar in the rub. Temps at 225-275.
    If I foil, whatever old white wine is in the fridge, mixed with a touch of apple juice.

    I've only spritzed once.  It was a combination of apple cider and Basil Hayden bourbon.

    If I spritz I do it for additional flavor layers. I usually use citrus like pineapple juice or orange juice I don't cut it with anything and I usually do it with a spicy rub for some contrast

    The formula is: 4 hrs unfoiled -- 0 hrs foiled-- 1 hr sauced. They are cooked indirect the entire time for me.
