IMO, I don't think you would score well doing that. Judges want what you perceive as "your" best BBQ. If you sauce differently, you are telling them you don't know what your best is.

It's the same reason that they won't let you put unsauced meat and a container of sauce in the box.

If you want to put pulled and sliced in the box, do so. They will see that you can cook to get a good product in both forms. Just sauce them with the same sauce.

i agree. pulled and sliced are fine in the same box but i won't mix the flavors.
Speaking as a Senior Judge with the SCBA , turning in both pulled and sliced pork shows skill and some imagination to me. but do use the same sauce in your turn in plate on both. But thats just my opinion as a judge.

Which one do you like best?
Which one does people that you have let sample both like best?
Which one presents it's self best with both the pulled and sliced pork?
Which one goes best with the rub you plan to use?

Sliced meat can tend to dry out, which on to you feel will hide/mask that or add moisture to your meat?

Answer those questions and you will have your answer.

Phil,
Don't know how you feel about using a bottled sauce for a comp, but you should try Reverend Marvin's BBQ sauce. It's a mustard base but also has vinegar and catsup in it also... Good on pork and beef.

Wont be the first time somebody did that will it, at least if I do it might add something extra like honey just to feel batter bout it though!! LOL
I would have to use Cattlemans new yellow mustard or the tomato based one I like thet taste of them both.

Mustard sauces get killed in the North East. Try something like Blues Hog Tennessee Red, That seems to be hot right now.

This was in LA and there is a lot of talk going on. I turned in some of my best stuff and was surprised. I have placed with a lesser product.

Anyway, thanks guys.

Let me get my stick out so I can stir the water........ start 5 comments down.
