Basic Beer Mop

Until recently, we didn't use a "mop" while grilling. However, we have always spritzed our grilled dishes with citrus during the cooking process. We have started to use a couple of different mops, which we put in spray bottles so we can "spritz" the food — and the fire — during cooking. We put it in a clean spray bottle that has not been used for commercial cleaning products. You can find them in the pharmacy or cosmetics section at your local Target or WalMart.

Make the mop sauce the morning of the day you will use it, and store it in the fridge. Give it a shake every time you go into the fridge that day, and it will be ready by grilling time!

Be sure you leave the garlic cloves whole, and intact so small pieces don't get stuck in the bottle's tube. By making it up a few hours ahead of time, the garlic will have plenty of time to infect the whole sauce.

4 cloves of garlic, whole but smashed

1 beer (we like Abita Amber)

1/4 cup cider vinegar

dash GirlsonaGrill Pepper Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)

Combine all ingredients and store in the fridge until ready to use.
