Church "Taste of the South Festival"

So our church is having a "Taste of the South" festival in late April. I signed up to egg either some butt or ribs with a North Carolina style BBQ sauce. Sunday morning, I found out that there will be trophies. Game on. 

I usually do butts with a homemade rub low n slow and do my ribs car wash mike style. I am curious if anyone has any tips to take either to the next level?

    I'm assuming we'll have to use solo cups...or a Starbucks cup ...sorry. Just do what you do. It'll be good off the egg. Better get ready for request.

    I think you can easily feed more people with pulled pork.  Personally, I think simple is the way to go.  Dry sweet rub, low and slow with an amazing bark.  Then hit em with a great sauce, especially choices, some sweet, some spicy, some carolina style.  Have a sweet sauce (my version of Kansas City) that is a favorite at my place.

    More than likely you will be the only egg there so this should be easy. Have you ever injected a butt? I hear strained Italian really kicks it up a notch. My egging buddy swears by it. I'm just too lazy or too pushed for time to try it.

    I have used Italian Salad Dressing as an injection for both chicken and butts and it was good.  I found Lawry's Teriayki Marinade works best for me in butts.  doesn't end up tasting like teriyaki, but gives the butt's juices a rich taste.  Comes in a 12 ounce bottle and will do two butts.
