Mike's Mop Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

We 'mop' most meats when we grill here in Texas. It keeps the meat moist and juicy! This is great for chicken or brisket. You will need to double this for a brisket. They sell little mops with the kitchen supplies and they look just like a kitchen string mop. If you don't have one you could probably use a basting brush. Oh, and make sure that you use an old sauce pan because if your hubby is like mine, you may not see it again! lol Or it may come back with the handle destroyed by the fire! Updated 9-2008

We followed the recipe ecactly as stated. It came out terrible. Used quality ingredients and the vinegar was just opend before using for this recipe. It had a sharp almost bitter taste. Had to throw the whole batch away. If it don't taste good you definatly don't want to mop your meat with it.
