    just my opinion but if it's all natural (no sugar added) & ya add low @ the last hour, i don't see a scorching problem.but then again @ 225-250 indirect heat smoking- nothing should scorch.

    I was actually thinking about making a "paste" rub, and letting it set overnight. I have always used dry rubs in the past, wondering what the applesauce will do after an extended period. But you are probably right, low temp it shouldn't be a problem...I hope.

    another of experience just my opinion- now i have done that & added it like this- a 1/4cup of white wine(or dark beer)3tbsp lemon,1/4 applesauce,cayenne(1-tbsp)& brownsugar, w/ worchy & balsamic for a wet rub marinade- chilled for 24 hrs, scraped off & added the last 2 hrs- not bad- just a bit sweet for me.

    I used my normal (super secret!!! lol ) rub, and mixed it with about 1 cup of apple sauce. The ribs are on the smoker as I type.

    I will let you guys know how it turns out.

    thanks for all the help.

    Actually, I think applesauce would work, if you dress it up a bit, and use it as a glaze on the last leg of the 3-2-1. I use a recipe that includes peaches for a glaze, so applesauce isn't that far off. Here's the recipe I use:
    1/2 a blender full of skinned and sliced peaches
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup honey
    2/3 cup catsup
    2/3 cup cider vinegar
    several dashes fresh ground pepper
    4 Tbs soy sauce
    4 cloves garlic
    4 tsp ginger
    2 tsp salt
    2 tsp sesame seeds (I crack mine in a coffe grinder right before I mix them)
    (Optional)Sometimes I add a shot or 2 of rum

    Blend until mixed well. Brush on ribs every 15 minutes during the last hour. Makes enough for several slabs of ribs. I suppose if you could replace the peaches with apples if you want the applesauce taste; maybe lighten up on the vineger if you do. Otherwise.....mmm mmm peaches!

    My son (age 16) spent the night at a buddies house, hence I did not have the help to load a pic!~ lol.

    This weekend I will try again.

    Thanks for all the great tips/comments. This really is a great site!
