  4. Place in a large container covered with saran wrap and refrigerate Buttes for 8 hours or over night.
  5. Add all the Sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly so it doesn't stick.

A very delicious sauce/rub (if you omit the A1 as i think its overpowering).

Very good recipe! I reduced the amount of cayenne in the rub and didn't add the A1 to the sauce. The sauce was very sweet, so would probably reduce the molasses and brown sugar next time. Make in the crock pot for a hot summer day's dinner!

Delicious as it Looks May 26, 2015

As many times as I've made this recipe, I need to leave a review. This rub is delicious and I haven't made pork in my crock in years! My BF loves it and requests that I make it this way every time I talk about making pulled pork. The only thing I did differently was add a bottle of beer that I like (Columbus Pale Ale or Wheat Ale) around the pork before sticking it in the oven and I cover it for about 3 or 4 hours then uncover the rest of the cooking time. The outside is still dark and crispy, falls apart and is super moist! I don't make the BBQ sauce as we prefer sweet baby rays cola-q and just put some on top of our sandwiches.
