    Does the brisket have to stay in the fridge overnight with the rub on it or can I rub and smoke it after resting with rub on for an hour?

    In my experience smoke away. But someone else will wait. Flip a coin.

    This topic will have varied opinions. The best way to know what you like best is to just try it both ways... It's all good

    I never let the rub set on the meat for more than a hour before landing on the smoker. useally rub,start smoker ,once it gets stabilized i load the meat.

    i have done it both ways, and i can't tell any difference. i rub and rest overnight if i can; otherwise rub and into the smoker in an hour. we eat it all either way.

    No right or wrong way. I saran wrap mine and let it set over night, but I have rubbed and smoked back to back. It is all good so whatever you choose should be to your liking. Have fun.

    I wrap mine and let it sit overnight too. For me, it mainly depends on how much time I have.
