Basting is when you periodically pour or brush liquid over the thing you are cooking. This liquid can be a prepared mixture like a sauce or marinade, or it can be the juices of whatever it is you are cooking. You would baste a turkey or a roast, but you can also baste other things like chicken wings and ribs. This is done to keep what it is you are cooking moist and to enhance flavour. Basting provides best results when you are making mild foods that are usually enhanced by sauces or gravies, like turkey or roast beef.
You need to use caution when basting. If your prepared basting sauce has alcohol in it, that can cause flareups. If you take too long to baste, the moisture that is being provided will evaporate from oven or grill when you open it and the meat will become dry. That is not to say you need to move as fast as you can, that can be dangerous, no, just make sure not to waste time admiring the food when you’re basting. You can do that when it is ready to eat.
