Pork butt - changing it up?

Gonna do a pork butt tonight but looking for something different instead of the "same ol' same ol'" I've always just done a dizzy dust or bad Byron's butt rub, mustard base, no injection. Love it for sure, but want to change it up. Any tips/ideas to have a (good) different tasting butt? How do YOU do your butts?

    Try cooking it to 160* and slicing. Totally different and good.

    We do a sweet pork with bits that pretty amazing. Smoke to like 175 180ish. Put in casserole/roasting dish with the mix of the following:
    1 can coke
    1.5 cup brown sugar
    1 small jar of hot picante or salsa

    Let it braise in liquid until it hits pulling temp. Then shred it up, mix in with liquids and cook another 20 mins or so stirring occasionally. Makes great burritos or nachos or quesadillas.
