Hi everyone, I've been a lurker for the last week or so when I discovered this great site and ya'all have motivated me to have another try at pork butt. I am a newb when it comes to smoking butts having only done it a couple of times with pretty good results. (it has gotten better each time) Here's my question/situation: I just went to the butcher and picked up a 7.5lb bone in shoulder, it is Tuesday now and I won't put in in the smoker until Friday night. I always use a rub about 24 hours prior to smoking but since I've got a couple days until I smoke it should I rub it now and let it marinade or should I hold off and rub it later? Is there any benefit to doing it now or would this compromise the meat? Any help would be appreciated.
