 COOKS NOTES: Butter! No substititute. Broth is an important ingredient to
 the mop. For brisket he uses beef broth, for chicken he uses chicken stock
 he makes himself from the backs and tails he cuts away when preparing
 chicken. He also incorporates the spices from the rub to maintain the same
 balances of flavors.
 Texas Grilling; Story about “Texas” Mike Moore of Aguanga: “Moore is
 talking about the kind of barbecue that takes at least 12 hours to make a
 brisket 'so good you don't need sauce.' Born in Laredo, Texas, Moore had
 his own barbecue restaurant in Austin, Texas, before moving to Oceanside
 nine years ago and eventually settling in Aguanga. He caters parties and
 takes part in barbecue cook-offs, often winning awards for his efforts.”
