Brisket Question

Discussion in 'Meat Selection and Processing' started by bobbyk, Aug 3, 2013.

  1. Hey all. I have a quick question that I probably know the answer to, just want to double check. If I rub a brisket and Saran Wrap it today, will it keep for 36 hours until I throw it in Monday morning?

    Also, has anyone ever tried doing a crosscut in the fat cap to let rub penetrate better?

    Yes it will be fine unless there's a bunch of salt in your rub. I used to rub the day before, but now I just apply my rubs right before the meat goes on. I wouldn't mess with scoring the cap.
