FWIW, I'll occasionally have pulled pork without sauce, but that is only when I'm at a Carolina-style place with awesome pork (I hate Carolina sauce but like the pork). However, given the choice, I'll always take good sauce over no sauce. Ribs without sauce is weird. I know people do it, but it's weird. Eschewing sauce categorically is also odd, but strange BBQ preferences aren't altogether shocking from a Kentuckian.
