Leaving rub on pork butts for 2-days before smoking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Any problems letting a couple of pork butts covered in rub sit in zip loc bags in the fridge for a couple of days before smoking?

Nope, no problem at all.

i do what you are suggesting intentionally... not long enough to actually cure the meat but the salt still draws into the meat and holds on to moisture better ... some people don't like doing this and say it give it a hammy cured flavor. i don't think it does but obviously not everyone likes it.

Heck I have left them in the fridge rubbed down for several days, usually in vac bags.

The longer you leave them the more flavor they will absorb, especially if they are under a vacuum.
