Rubbed a 10# boston pork butt with Jeffs Rub.  Going to put on the smoker tomorrow.  Have you guys added an extra little bit of the rub on the pork once its pulled?  I saw it on some food show on TV and thinking about trying it.
Its really up to you, in case you dont find the rub didnt give it enough flavor to your liking than yes you can do that or add a sauce of some sort, up to the consumer in my opinion. Im doing to Boston butts tomorrow and i will probably do the same thing depending on flavor.
I usually add some once pulled. I will mix it through and allow to sit for a few minutes and taste then maybe add more or not, really up to you and your taste. I am not a big sauce guy. I have never had people complain about the taste.

If I use my electric smoker I use the drippings from the pan, pour some in a pan and sit in the fridge so the fat comes to the top and hardens then remove that and you will have a gelatin  boil this for a few minutes just to make sure no nastys survive, then add this to the pork, it will add moisture and more smoke flavor.
