Default How much sauce?

How much sauce do you use in your pulled pork? I always put the sauce on the side and add it to each sammy, but someone asked me how much to make when mixing it in the meat before.

I don't pre sauce, but if I did, it would be very light - just enough to moisten it and make it glisten.

Pork drowned in sauce is a sign of poorly cooked pork or pork that has been sitting around way too long.

^^^ like they guys said, none. I have sauceS on the side for the different sauce lovers. I'll usually have one or two variations on the NC vinegar sauces, a SC mustard style, and then a few variants of a KC gone Memphis sauce. One day I'll get some of that Alabama white sauce too....

Necked also. If someone asks for sauce I take it as an insult. Although no one up here knows what real Q is:(

wait....so you're supposed to put sauce on your Q. All these years I've been doing it wrong...

Being serious, I want to die when I see people drowning my Q in sauce. I try to explain, but its often too much work

On the side, in jars, with an appropriate spoon for the portion people will need.

I learned this the hard way when my mom nearly choked to death after loading up a sandwich with vinegar and cayenne sauce straight out of a squeezie-bottle.

Sauce is always on the side here at my house. Most of my BBQ loving friends don't use it. They just enjoy the meat.

I always toss it with a light coating of Blues Hog Tennessee Red, then have a jar of that along with a jar of a KC-style variant for people if they want it. Most folks don't partake.
