Default Has anyone ever tried molasses on a pork butt?

I was gonna do a cook tomorrow of a couple butts and was thinking I wonder what molasses would taste like if I put it on like 10 hours in. Would it give a better color and taste? If anyone has tried it I would love to know how you did it and how it turned out. Thanks!!

I made a chunk of shoulder cut country style ribs seasoned with nothing but salt and molasses and found it rather pleasant. Details here...

I used to use a molasses based BBQ sauce and glaze, it was pretty good. I never used it straight, but, as a component it has merit.

I only did it to find out how the molasses tasted when cooked on the meat. It was a positive result. I also made pieces with only salt and one other ingredients for probably over a hundred different ingredients. I'm not sure i would cook a whole butt that way, but I wouldn't have any problems using molasses on a butt because of this result.

Really like to hold the rub on thats what I use mustard for. Does it give a good bark how about the taste does it overpower your rub?

Well I am using it today on a butt and see what happens. I used it like I normally would use mustard to hold the rub on. I'll update later maybe a pic or 2 as well.

I've used molasses before in a brine solution for pork butts ala Alton Brown. Turned out really good. Never thought about using it as a slather. Looking forward to your conclusions.
