Low-Sugar Rubs/ Mops
Any of youse guys have any experience with low-sugar rubs and/or mops. I'm doing this low-carb thing, and would like to expunge the sugar from my Q if at all possible. I may try replacing rub sugar with a little Splenda, but that just seems like it's gonna fail for some reason.
I usually use apple juice and beer in my mops, both of which are out-of-bounds for now. I was thinking about some sugar-free flavored drink mix or Snapple or something maybe with some cider vinegar.
I also have no idea how you might even figure how much sugar would actually end up in a serving of briket, butt, etc. after being rubbed and mopped with sugar-containing stuff. Any ideas?
(Mods: feel free to move this to the Low-carb board if it belongs there)
