What to Do In The Fridge Over Night?

Discussion in 'Pork' started by duffman, Sep 7, 2010.

  1. I am going to make some pulled pork in a few weeks for some friends and family. I am going to start early so I want to aply my mustard and rub to the butt on Friday night. Can I let it sit on a pan uncovered overnight in the fridge or do i need to wrap in in plastic wrap? Thanks for the help!

    Alot of folks wrap. I put mine in a trusty Tupperware container. I think as long as it's covered and air tight you'll be alright. When do you plan on serving the pork? on Sat? Sun?

    I always cover, but I don't know if it is mandatory.  I just figure less thinks getting onto the meat.
  4. I plan to rub it down around 9 or 10 on Friday night the met it sit in the fridge over night and and put it on around 8 on Saturday Morning.

    I always wrap in suran wrap, I think it my turn the outer layer to leather if you didn't. take the extra step, it won't take that long.

    Yep, wrap it. I don't want everything in the fridge picking up the smell/taste of the rub. Save that for the meat.

    I wrap the meat up tightly and with alot of saran wrap. I use alot of brown sugar and salt on my meat abd the meat leaks alot of moisture and I don't want it in my refrig.
