    What's the collective opinion on finishing sauces? If you're just going to add BBQ sauce anyway, what's the point of a finishing sauce?

    I guess the best wayI can explain it is, Try it and with it then try it without it. I'll let the finishing sauce speak for itself.

    With a finishing sauce there is not a big need for BBQ sauce.

    I have also found that it softens the meat a bit.

    The way I describe a finishing sauce is that it adds another "layer" of flavor.

    It is distinct from a bbq sauce, at least to me.

    Try it!

    SoFlaQuer has a great one for pulled pork, it's a sticky.

    Yep. You just have to try it. I never do pulled pork without SoFlaQuers finishing sauce. I hardly use my bbq sauce on it anymore. I've had folks say they have never had pulled pork taste so good without bbq sauce. To me, it's that good.

    SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce works great for pulled pork. I just keep spritz'n the pile with it as the pile groes, then stir it all up. then It goes into a giant ziplock before the fridge. Before I seal the bag, I drizzle on some of the drippings from the foiled butts. I use the juice from the foil, but let it sttle in the freezer for a few and then skim off the yellow/orange fat at the top. The darker stuff under the fat is what I rewarm in the micro, and then add it to the bag before the fridge. Shake it up and there ya go. No sauce needed!

    Absolutely love the tang factor the finishing sauce gives it. I usually eat it without BBQ sauce but if I do add some it is very little and I make sure to stir it in. That way it doesn't overpower and just adds yet another layer of flavor.

    When I use SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce, I hardly use much BBQ sauce either. Basicly just enough to change the color to red. MMMMMM GOOD!!

    To me the finishing sauce made the final touch. It is definately worth a try.
