So I just ran out on lunch break and picked up a Pork Butt. Came in right around 9.5#
Question for all of you is, should I rub it down tonight and leave it in the fridge until I smoke tomorrow around noon (would love to start early AM, but have to work and need the PP ready for the guys early afternoon on Saturday), or would my best bet be to get up early and do the prep before I leave for the gym in the AM. It would be rubbed in the fridge for 6.5ish hours that way.
Or do I just not worry about any of that and rub it down as the smoker is getting up to temp?
Thanks for any advice on this. I am trying to research as much as I can before hand so I don't go and screw it up, so any advice or links to reading on the subject would be appreciated. I really like to Geek out on this stuff and learn all I can before hand. Thanks again!
