It is going to depend on what is in your rub - if there is a lot of salt I would not go over 24 hours at the most. The majority of us just rub and put in the fridge overnight

Good luck and don't forget the qview

Or you could rub them the day of the cook. I usually prep the meat and rub it then put it back in the fridge and go start the fire.
