This might be the wrong pace, but I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. I about to go on vacation, but need to do a brisket the day I get back (I'll be back some time in the wee hours). So, obviously I won't have time to rub and rest after I get home. So, my idea was to take the brisket, rub it down, then vacuum seal it and put it in the fridge. I will be gone exactly a week, but that shouldn't be problem if it is vacuum sealed. Then, I would take it out and smoke it when I got back. Has anyone ever done something like this? I didn't know if it would work. I also thought that if it does work, I might need to use less rub as the vacuum may pull the rub further into the meat. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
