View Full Version : Sauce or not for pulled pork sammi?

Hello, I am preparing 8 butts for a fund raiser this weekend.

I was kind of thinking having the folks put the non sauced pork on the bun and then have sauce available for those that want it on the side.

Is that the normal or do most mix in the sauce with the meat and then scoop it on the bun?

Sorry for the newb question..

It totally depends on what your "customer" wants. I recommend to my customers exactly what you are suggesting. Plain meat on the bun with sauce on the side for those who want it. That way people can dress their sandwich with as much or as little sauce as they like. Best of luck!

I agree with ^^^. Not everyone wants meat, but if your customer want you to go that route, the customer is the one you gotta keep happy.

Thank you!

That is what I was thinking as well!

I agree with sauce on the side. Customers seem to place as much or more emphasis on the sauce than they do on the meat. Here in Florida the customer runs the full spectrum. Carolina, St Louis, KC, even Texas.
Everyone has their own idea of what is the best sauce. Give them a selection and they will associate your BBQ with their style.
