I am going to do some Baby Backs tomorrow, for some friends, and have a question about how long before smoking them should I apply the rub. The rub recipe I am using says to put it on two hours before, but I am thinking of putting it on the night before. The longer time would seem better, in my opinion, for the spices to penetrate the meat. Is that the goal to shoot for? Also would applying EVOO before putting on the rub change your opinion about the time needed?
