I always put apple juice and a little honey in the foil with the ribs......Low and behold I just realized we are OUT of apple juice....and it`s just about time to foil them......So what other liquids do you use if you use this method?????[p]Wess

    I can`t believe I didn`t think of that...and Sally even said I have used beer a time before....doooooohhhhh[p]Thanks..[p]Wess

  • WessB,
    I've used pineapple or orange juice or a combination of both. We even uses some White Grape Juice before, but don't usually have that around very often. I like the beer idea too. See-Yaa

    Sometimes nothing or sometimes sauce. The other posts work equally as well. I am not usually willing to part with the beer or wine. Jay

    WessB,[p]I faced this very same situation three weeks ago....No apple juice in sight....So...put some white whine in the foil packs and the ribs came out tasty and moist...and all was well.....[p]Ed McLean

  • eddiemac,
    I've used wine for this too. Red and sweetened with a little sugar. I now keep a handful of assorted juice boxes around for this. Apple, cherry, or fruit punch. It doesn't seem to matter.

  • WessB,[p]I don't but if I did it would be my standard spritz... 1 cup cider vinegar, 1/2 cup Captain Morgan's, and 1/4 cup Dale's sauce. The Junkyard Dogs did real well with their ribs using root beer. I've also heard of people using Dr. Pepper.
  • WessB,a little secret- Dr.Pepper
