    Chef Jimmy J posted the following recipe for Foiling Juice for Ribs and Pork:

    "1T Pork Rub, yours
    1/2 Stick Butter
    1/2C Cane Syrup... Dark Corn Syrup...or Honey
    1/4C Apple Cider...or Juice
    1T Molasses
    2T Vinegar, 2T Mustard and 1/4C Ketchup to make it more KC Style Glaze.

    Simmer 5-10 minutes until syrupy consistency.
    Allow to cool for 5 minutes, pour over foiled Ribs and
    run your 2 hour phase of 3-2-1. For the last phase return
    the ribs to the smoker BUT reserve any Juice remaining
    in the Foil. Simmer the Juice over med/low heat to reduce to a saucy thickness. Glaze the Ribs for presentation or service.
    For a Sweet Finishing Sauce for Pulled Pork: Make a Double batch, Butter optional or do as I do...Use the Smoked Pork Fat from the drip pan...

    Add 1/2 the batch to the Foil Pack or place it in a Pan with your Butt, when the IT hits 165*F.
    Cover the pan with foil and continue to heat to 205*F for pulling.
    At 205* rest or hold the Butt in a cooler wrapped in towels until ready to serve.
    Pull the Pork and place it back in the pan with the pan Juices and any additional reserved Foiling Juice to moisten and Serve...OR... Bag and refrigerate until needed.
    When re-heating place the Pulled Pork in a Pan or Crockpot and add reserved Foiling Juice or Apple Cider, as needed to make up the Juice that was absorbed while the pork was refrigerated. Cover and re-heat in a pre-heated 325-350*F oven or on High in the crockpot to 165*F and Serve.
    Note: the addition of the reserved Foiling Juice or Apple Cider should make the PP moist but not Swimming."

    It is GREAT!!
