I have been wondering about this controversial act, some say it improves taste others say it's a devils sin Razz What are your views on spilling beer over the grill meat. I might want to try this out for myself but maybe some of you can give me a piece of your mind regarding this issue Very Happy

Maybe you're thinking of a MOP, not a pour. There certainly are plenty of people that like to Mop their meats while they're smoking. Do a search on Mop and you'll get some more info.

mayerj, I have many friends I have seen do this (as well as repeatedly flip their meat over and over as well as smash the meat with their spatula Evil or Very Mad ) and I myself don't get it. I feel that pouring beer over the meat is washing away alot of really good flavor. Most of the beer that is poured on is just going to run right off the meat. I agree that if I were to do put any beer at all I would spray just a little at a time. But to each their own! Smile

Not only what ShahBQ said, it is a waste of perfectly good beer. I make my own beer as well and I only want to pour it down my throat after working hard to make it Wink

Hey, to each, is own. I like to drink, eat, and everything else about beer. If that is your mop, cool. Do what you want. There are a lot of people who use other types of alcohol in mops so have at it.

That's the way to go, then after you drink it all and you want
to spray it on the grill go for it. Shocked Laughing

Of course we're talking good beer here not slug bait.

I use beer in a marinade now and then and think that's the best use of beer during grilling. (except drinking)
I've seen guys pour it on when there is a flare up but a spritzer bottle works better in my opinion.

Does soaking it count? I've been know to soak my steak in beer while it's coming up to temp, flipping it every now and then. I prefer to use a stronger IPA, something from Rogue or Deschutes breweries perhaps. I find that the hoppiness of the beer and the time soaked gets ya different intensities. A strong hoppy beer and soaking for a full hour will be a pretty strong tasting steak. Not for everyone perhaps. I like to drink my hops and eat them too.

But no, I think pouring beer over something already on the grill would be a waste of beer.

I love beer, but have never liked cooking with it. To each their own...
