Pork Shoulder Storage

We bought a shoulder on sale today with plans for pulled pork tomorrow.  After we put the groceries in the trunk and got in the car, we realized we were meeting friends for dinner tomorrow.  I'm probably going to freeze it.  Since I know some people have said it can go directly from the freezer to egg, I was wondering about 2 things:
1) did you trim the fat cap before freezing?
2) did you put the rub on before freezing?

I'll wrap it well, but I don't have a vacuum bag system if that influences how it is frozen.

  • I would have taken it home injected it with an injection then rubbed it down and put it on the Egg this morning early and cooked it. It is easier to freeze the pulled pork for later meals.

    Even putting it on early, I wouldn't be home when it came off unless I turbo it, which I don't want to do.
