Top O' the morn to you laddies and laddices,
Tomorrow I'm going to smoke-a-tize two racks of BB ribs in my MES at 225 for however long it takes using hickory. I'd like them to take as much smoke as possible in ~3 hours so right now I have them in the fridge mellowing with no rub. I'll leave until late tonight or early tomorrow then rub them up. Will the sit time allow a pellicle to form so they absorb smoke well or should I have rubbed them first?
