    Hey guys, doing some ribs tomorrow... Should I put the rub on tonight and let it sit over night? I've never done this with ribs before so not sure the best way to go. The directions just say to let it sit a few minutes until it looks wet and then flip and do the other side, then to the smoker. Nothing about over night.

    I let my rub sit while the smoker is getting up to temp. That's usually about an hour. If you use a mustard slather on the ribs, the rub will soak in very well. Jeff's rub is great.

    R, I add rub an hour or so before smoking and I always get good flavor.

    I've done it both ways, even rubbed the ribs & vac packed them for a couple of days.

    All those ways will work, obviously the longer the rub is on the more flavor will absorb into the meat.

    Especially if it's under vacuum.
