Bourbon BBQ Spritz

This is a great bourbon barbecue spritz that will keep low and slow cooked meats from drying out. Use this spritz on brisket, pork roasts, and ribs. The bourbon adds a nice liveliness but will not overpower the flavor of the meat. Please note that we at BGDR, developed this recipe using Four Roses Bourbon
