When turning in ribs, pulled pork, and chicken at comps, do you sauce them after you pull them off of the smoker for the last time, or do you sauce them while they are still on there only?

Thank You,

Chicken, Pork and Ribs I sauce then put back in the smoker to set it and I also apply a light coat of sauce on the table when getting ready to build my boxes. Brisket just gets a thin coat of sauce right be for it goes into the box.

Hope this helps

Everyone does them differently. Some sauce like New Pal to let it set up. Others sauce at the last moment before sealing up the clam shell. Some, dare I say it, dont sauce, but they've become rare nowadays... For me, I found that my meat has enough smokey flavor on it and that the sauces that I use just absorb it like it's going out of style, so putting it back on the smoker is a no-go.
