Default Keeping pulled pork moist - why do you folks do?

I am going to be cooking about 5 butts for a function and would like to know what all of you do to keep the pork moist. I'll probably be holding the pork refrigerated for about 1-2 days and when I have done this in the past, the pork has a tendency to be a little dry. How do you re- heat the pork and what ingredients to you put in after you pull the pork. I have experimented with a a NC vinegar base as well as the juices from the foiled butts but am curious to see what you all do.

My rig uses a waterpan so my butts start out terrifically moist. As to keeping it moist, I spritz with applejuice and heat in the oven on a stoneware platter wrapped in foil.

Goodluck!

For a second I thought you were asking WHY I/we keep it moist. Caught my eye with your subject line.

Using a little fruit juice and BBQ sauce helps.
