You rub your ribs two days in advance versus overnight?


  • ShortRib,[p] Actually yes. The longer you leave the meat uncooked with the rub on it the stronger the spice will be. That is to a point.[p] You might find that it will be too strong.[p]

    ShortRib,[p]Don't be surprised if they're a little hammy, as in pink and salty. Salt and sugar are curing agents and ribs aren't a very big mass so they start to cure pretty quick. They'll be OK to eat but might be a little different. On the other hand you may like them that way.

    you might think there's a difference, but i'd wager a hundred bucks no one could tell.[p]
