Yeah I sprinkle with rub as well.
Thing is.....many times I cook several butts at a time and pull the meat planning on vacuum sealing it the next day. I'll pull the meat and put it into pans, sprinkle with rub and then pour AJ over the whole pan, cover it and put it in the fridge. The next day, when I pull the pan out, there's vitrually NO moisture in the pan. The meat sort of soaks it up. I also think a good layer of moisture in the bottom of the roaster or holding pan will keep the bottom layer from burning. Water will do the same, but AJ just has more flavor and compliments the pork.
