I like to do the rub and mustard a day ahead if I have the time.  In the fridge until your ready to smoke, then do your usual smoke procedure.  Mustard is more than a marinade, it actually has properties that  will break down the meat, tenderize, and accentuate the flavors.  just my 2 cents.  Good luck and thank your son for his service.   flag.gif    Don't forget the q-views.

If I am not brining I prefer to put the mustard and the rub on the night before. I think this helps to form a better bark and also help some of the seasonings to penetrate into the meat. IMHO

This might help a bit, sorry for the condition of the image.  My dog tried to eat my sauce book.  th_HaHAAHaa.gif

Why does the dog get blamed for everything when he claims he wasn't even in the room when the cat knocked it off the table?  th_dunno-1[1].gif

      Is there such a thing as too early to drink beer?

Good luck with smoke and happy to hear your son is back! Too early to pop a top...I was a bartender for years and I don't think there is such a thing as "too early"...lol

Now you apply the mustard the night before or the day of either or is alright. Now you need to spend time with your son and enjoy the time you have. Now then you enjoy your smoke and thank you son us.
