Default How soon is too soon too rub your meat?

All joking aside, how soon is too soo to put the rub on a boston butt? I would like to do it the night before, effectively placing the rub on the pork a solid 23 hours before i start to smoke it.

is that too long?

Nope can't resist. Even in the presenve of the Rev.

All depends on how quickly I can locate the right butt in Boston to rub.

I would never concern myself with getting my rub on for too long (unless it starts to chaffe). It when your rub is too short when regarding porking.

Man, I don't know if I could rub it that long...

I usually only go for 15-30 mins or so, but in that time I give it a good deep rub and massage to work everything all in there. The end result is always fantastic.

If you rub and wrap that's good.
Over time aroma can be lost if not wrapped

I always rub the butt the night before and then again before it goes on the smoker. I used to worry about too much seasoning. Reality is that you throw out about half of it due to fat.

Heh.

Overnight is ok. There is some concern that, depending on how much salt is in the rub, that it'll begin to "cure" at some point. I believe it depends on the cut of meat though, wouldn't try 24 hours with say, babybacks. But a butt should be ok.

So do you mean a sort of an Auto-asphixiation type of thing?

If there's grass on the field, play ball.

On a serious note....like the others have said, just wrap it up. I think the longer the better. I usually let mine soak up the rub for a good 24-36 hours or so.
