Question on a tri-tip

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Picked up a two pack of tri-tips tonight at Costco. I opened the package to stick one in the freezer and I went ahead and rubbed the other one down with Jeff's rub. My question is: should I have waited to apply the rub since I plan on smoking it Sunday night? Even though the rub doesn't contain much salt I am worried about drawing too much moisture since the rub will be on for basically 3 days before I smoke it. The meat should be alright, right? I've never smoked this cut before so I don't want to ruin my first attempt before I even really get started.

If you wrapped it the small amount of moisture that the salt draws will be reabsorbed adding flavor and a bit of tenderizing. The long contact with the Rub spices will make for a great flavor. Have no worries...JJ
