When you mix together the wet rub, use a large mixing bowl. The rub will be very sticky because of the thickness of the molasses. Use a rubber spatula to mix because it will help blend the spice ingredients and then when you add the cut squash a bit of the moisture will help. Fold the squash until it is well coated.
When roasting the squash, toss frequently using a wooden or ovenproof rubber spatula to keep the squash and pumpkin seeds from sticking to the pan and burning.
