Howdy, I just need to run a quick question by all the Brethern out here, I would like to take a poll on how to finish out pork in a competition, we finish by adding our vinegar sauce to taste after pulling is this the wrong way ? We have a 1st. and (2) 12th. and a 18th. place in pork so far.

A lot of how you do something is determined by where you are doing it. While finishing with a vinegar sauce might work well in your area, it probably wouldn't go over so well in the midwest where a sweet sauce is king.

I tried using a tomato and vinegar sauce on pork and it didn't go over well in competition even though most everyone that tries it likes it.

Is the sauce homemade or commercial ?

We're you're taste scores consistent ?

Did anything else change as far as recipe/technique with those four placings ?

I'm all for a sprinkling of the vinegar sauce. This Midwest preference for sweet sauces bores my palate to tears.

My experience with a vinegar based sause is either they love it or they hate it. Try cutting it with something else.
