This is a great sweet barbecue mop and works particularly well with beef. It's a perfect mop for smoked brisket, but can be used on pork as well.


  • 1/2 cup/120 mL Kentucky Bourbon
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL pureed sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL water

Steps to Make It

1. In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, combine all ingredients until sugar has melted through. If it is too thick, add a little water to thin it out.

2. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature before using. If making ahead of time, follow previous instructions and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days after preparation.

3. To use, simply apply mop several times during the later stages of smoking a brisket or pork roast.
