My feelings are, if ya got the time, put it on overnight, itâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s only gonna make it better…ya may want to refreshen the rub before you put them on the smoker though, it gets kinda wet!

I Marinade all night in apple juice, soy sauce and wor sauce. Then right before I smoke, I apply the rub. Once I applied the rub the night before but alot of it came off during all the handling. However both ways were to die for!!!

Depends on the cut. Ribs I rub usually the night before, butts, I marinade and rub just before I put in the smoker.
