Can a Boston Butt sit in rub too long before smoking?


Joined Jul 5, 2013
So last night I rubbed a boston butt and placed in the fridge with the full intention of smoking it low and slow today, but plans have changed and I won't be able to get to it until tomorrow. Anybody know if that 36 hours in the fridge coated in the dry rub will be too long for any reason?

Nope...The extra time will let the seasoning penetrate the meat a bit more...JJ
