    When you guys talk about finishing sauce are you talking about dumping the sauce in the pan with the meat or just the sauce you put on the sandwich? I've only done one butt and didnt put any sauce on the meat, just had it on the side to put on the sandwich as you made it. Really was just fine without any sauce at all.

    When I'm doing pulled pork, I always add some sauce to the meat, but reserve some for serving on the side.

    Hawg's right, just don't put to much or you'll make it mushy

    I've tried SoFlaQuers' finishing sauce(sticky in pork section) and really liked it, wife thought it was too much vinegar. For Fathers Day I made some pulled pork on Saturday and reheated it before the Fathers Day lunch at my parents house. It was a MAJOR hit!

    I put all the pulled pork in a big alum foil pan, mixed 12oz apple juice w/3 oz of cider vinegar. As I was heating it in the smoker, every 1/2hr to 45 min, I'd spritz it down and add some more rub and mix it up w/my hands. Taste'n as I'd go to know how much more to add.

    I'm not a big pork fan, but after that pulled pork is now right up there w/brisket and tri-tip.

    Leftovers were given out, and some frozen. We'd heat it up in microwave and it was still great.

    It just adds a little somethin extra, w/the smoke, rub and spritz. Best I've ever had.

    I'm a big fan of SoFlaQuer's sauce. I squirt some on right before I serve it or if I am reheating some I squirt some on the meat. toss it. smoke it or nuke it if I dont have the time. Top it will a little bbq sauce for another layer of flavor.
