    can you use pan drippings (from pork butt) and mix with bbq sauce (i.e. sweet baby rays) to make a serving sauce for pulled pork?

    sure why not? just make sure it has been heated for a while don't use the drippings in the beginning. but towards the end sure...its mostly grease/fat anyway with flavoring

    The short answer is YES. Remove the fat first. Skim what you can, the Fat is clear and colorless, the good stuff is slightly cloudy and a golden brown, leave this Jus behind. There will still be a little fat left. Take 2" wide strips of Paper Towel and quickly drag a couple across the surface, this will remove the remainder. The remaining Jus is great in your BBQ Sauce...But Sweet Baby Rays !?!...Your putting Solid Gold 22" Dub's* on a HUGO there my friend! Those drippings are also a major flavor boost in a variety of things. Here is some more on the subject and a Recipe that I think you will like with no HFC or preservatives...JJ

    Note*...That's a really nice set of MAG's or Cragar's for you OLD GUYS![​IMG]

    KC Bubba Q Juice

    2C Ketchup

    1/2C Brown Mustard (Gulden's)

    1/4C Apple Cider Vinegar

    1/2C Molasses

    2C Dark Brn Sugar

    1T Tomato Paste

    1T Mild Rub

    1-2tsp Liquid Smoke

    1tsp Worcestershire Sauce

    Combine all and warm over low heat just until it starts to bubble. Simmer about 5 minutes, stirring very frequently, to combine flavors and to thicken slightly.

    Use or pour into a sterile jar and refrigerate for up to 4 weeks.

    Makes 3 1/2 Cups.

    This is a similar style to KC Masterpiece or Sweet Baby Rays but way better.
