This moisture is pretty much dependent on your discretion and preference. But whatever you do, ensure you moist the meat to further preserve the texture. Add a braising liquid and preheat the oven to 250°F (121°C).
Note these braising liquid ingredients:
Smoke flavor: What’s the barbeque without the subtle smoky flavor? Try a liquid smoke.
Base liquid: This is vital. It can either be beer, chicken stock, or anything that appeals to you.
Sweet liquid: It ranges from orange juice to maple syrup to sugar if needed.
Add acid: Anything acid includes vinegar — white or apple cider vinegar.
Braising Liquid Recipe
- ½ white wine
- ¼ maple syrup
- ¼ white vinegar
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
Bring these ingredients to a boil and ensure it cools before you add them to the rubs. Open the foil slightly pour about ¼ of the braising liquid, and seal it back immediately.
