Hi all! Been lurking here for a few weeks trying to soak in as much as possible. Going to try a 8.75 lb butt tomorrow night. Trying to decide tonight if I should go ahead and apply mustard and Bad Byron's and refrigerate until the cook tomorrow night. Is there really any advantage to doing this or should I just wait until right before it goes on the egg?

    I just add my rub right before it goes on the egg.    I light the egg and prep the meat while it comes to temp.

    I don't use mustard anymore - too much work and no tangible benefits.  I get the egg started, pull the butt out of the fridge, apply the rub and throw it on as soon as the smoke smells good.

    No mustard here either. I've never seen the need for it as the meat always seems to be moist enough to bind the rub with no problem.

  • I'm a mustard fan. I've read that the vinager in the mustard helps break down the collagen in the pork butt. I don't know if it makes a difference but I've seen too many award winning BBQ guys that do it so I do it too.
