    I rubbed a pork butt yesterday and keep having things come up where I can't smoke it. Looks like I can't throw it on til tomorrow night. Is 50 hours to long?
     
  2. I once had the same problem with getting around to smoking some ribs and was a bit concerned after them being in the rub for three days.  Truth be told, the best ribs I've ever done, and that is according to the wife!

    I think you'll be okay but might want to wait for the experts to respond.  The way I see it, as long as the meat doesn't spoil in the fridge you'll be fine.

    My guess is you'll be fine. Better safe than sorry rinse and reapply before smoking!

    If your rub had salt in it I would recommend not reusing a rub with salt in it as well.
     
  5. You'll be fine a couple of days won't hurt anything. After it's smoked see how you like the flavor ? if it's a hit you may want to keep doing it that way, If not go shorter next time. I am a apply my rub right before I smoke guy. No particular reason, just always have

    Just a week ago I smoked two butts that had been rubbed and in the fridge for three days.  Came out perfect.  I say go for it.

    Ended up sitting about 54 hours and tasted delicious. Took a little longer to get up to temp than usual. I don't know if the long rubbed sit time mattered or played a factor in that.
