Trying to get some different flavor, so I added about half a cup of molasses after I did my normal rub.
As anyone had success with molasses.
As usual 210-220 smoke for 3-4 hrs then check and wet mop.
Danger, Danger Will Robinson....Honey caramelizes at temps between 158 and 230°F, depending on the style. At common smoker temps it can Burn. Give this a shot...JJ
Regular, Fancy or Mild Flavor Molasses is left from the processing of Cane Juice after the 1st or 2nd boiling and still contains quite a bit of sugar and sweetness, light and tasty. Blackstrap or Full Flavored Molasses, 3rd boiling, has most of the remaining sugar removed, nowhere near as sweet, and the remaining flavor components are concentrated and in your face. Then there is Unsulfured which is made from sun ripe sugar cane and gives the finest quality. Sulfured is made from younger green cane and uses Sulfur in the processing, Still tasty but a bit stronger flavored...
Use depends on you. Pouring over Biscuits or Pancakes? Mild unsulfured is nearly as sweet as maple syrup with a light smokey flavor. Making Molasses Cookies, Shoofly Pie or BBQ sauce? Blackstrap adds a TON of flavor in even small amounts...JJ
