Liquids applied to foods as they cook are called bastes. Basting serves two purposes: It keeps meats moist and fosters the formation of a flavorful crust during grilling. A baste can be as simple as apple cider sprayed on ribs with a [[mister]] or as elaborate as the lemon- saffron-butter mixture brushed on [[shish kebab]]s by Iranian grill jockeys. Bastes usually contain some sort of fat—olive oil or melted butter, for example—to seal in the juices.

Bastes usually contain some sort of fat—olive oil or melted butter, for example—to seal in the juices.
