can you use pan drippings (from pork butt) and mix with bbq sauce (i.e. sweet baby rays) to make a serving sauce for pulled pork?

The short answer is YES. Remove the fat first. Skim what you can, the Fat is clear and colorless, the good stuff is slightly cloudy and a golden brown, leave this Jus behind. There will still be a little fat left. Take 2" wide strips of Paper Towel and quickly drag a couple across the surface, this will remove the remainder. The remaining Jus is great in your BBQ Sauce...But Sweet Baby Rays !?!...Your putting Solid Gold 22" Dub's* on a HUGO there my friend! Those drippings are also a major flavor boost in a variety of things. Here is some more on the subject and a Recipe that I think you will like with no HFC or preservatives...JJ
Note*...That's a really nice set of MAG's or Cragar's for you OLD GUYS!
KC Bubba Q Juice
1/2C Brown Mustard (Gulden's)
1/4C Apple Cider Vinegar
2C Dark Brn Sugar
1T Tomato Paste
1T Mild Rub
1-2tsp Liquid Smoke
1tsp Worcestershire Sauce
Combine all and warm over low heat just until it starts to bubble. Simmer about 5 minutes, stirring very frequently, to combine flavors and to thicken slightly.
Use or pour into a sterile jar and refrigerate for up to 4 weeks.
Makes 3 1/2 Cups.
This is a similar style to KC Masterpiece or Sweet Baby Rays but way better.
