Rib prep question.

Hello all. Got three racks of spares itching to get tomorrow for the Super Bowl. Planning on a turbo style cook and shooting for a three hour cook at 325 degrees dome. The question is this. If I mustard then rub my ribs tonight will that be an ideal time for the seasonings to do their magic? I have heard that if you put rubs on too soon the salt in the rubs will dry the rib out. Thoughts?

    I always rub and mustard the ribs the night before a cook. Never once have I had a problem with them drying out due to salt.

  • When I use my homemade rub ( only has a tablespoon or two of salt) I rub the night before and vacuum seal again using my foodsaver. If your rub is real salty just put BBQ sauce on 1/2 hr b4 taking off the BGE
