    I'm pre-smoking 2 butts for my sisters family BBQ in two weeks. After I pull the butts, do I put Jeff's finishing sauce on them first before freezing in the ziplock bags, or do I wait till BBQ day and apply it then, when the pulled pork is re-warmed?
    Thanks.

    You'll want to put just a little bit in the meat, not enough to make it moist, then vacuum seal. When you re-heat you'll add more of the finishing sauce.

    The reason why you don't add so much before freezing or storing is because the vinegar in the finishing sauce will break down the meat and make it mushy.
