RIGHT SAUCE. RIGHT TIMING.
Getting the most flavor out of your sauce and getting the most flavor into the meat requires timing. The goal when adding sauce is to caramelize that sweet, tangy sugar. Slather it on too soon and it’ll burn, leaving your meat with an unwanted charred flavor. When to add varies a bit depending on the type of meat and the sweetness of the sauce. Always remember, sweeter sauces and higher temps equal sauce burning quicker.
