Mopping Sauce vs. BBQ Sauce

When you barbecue, do you use a mopping sauce AND a last minute finishing bbq sauce? I find that some people are unaware of the advantages of a mopping sauce and instead use BBQ sauce to baste their barbecue, which can caramelize and burn rather quickly because of the higher sugar content. Your thoughts, recipes...?
