    I have never used fresh herbs on butts but you might be able to achieve some of the flavors early on in the cook ( before bark sets) if you lay a bunch directly on the meat and throw a handful on the fire. I wouldn't expect it to be very powerfull but just a hint of the flavors. This is how I have done many a turkey breast and even tried on a pork loin. Can't wait to see which direction you go.
