Getting together with mine and my brothers family plus my dad next weekend. We will be at our family place in NY. But With work bowling and meetings I don't have time to get it ready any other time. It's 8 pounds and I hope it's not to soon. . It's been injected with creole butter and sweet baby rays then covered with a mixture of sweet and smokey applewood rub. Then wrapped it n foil and put in the fridge. I will pack it in a cooler with ice for the three hour ride to my place in NY Do you think it was to soon esp with the injections I did or I'm hopping it will be the best with the time it has to sit. Thank you.
