Spritz them in the foil right before you close it up. We use apple juice and worchestershire....
Funny you mentioned yardbird beacause its been driving me crazy wanting to try the stuff. I have been doing a lot of research about rubs, and this stuff has such a huge following. It might change my mind about buying a rub instead of making one.... I sure would like to have a copycat recipe of the yardbird, but that would not be fair to a fellow bretheren if the recipe leaked.
