I agree, but I think he needs to push it, just a bit, for more counter over fridge today.
If he needs it tomorrow night, then, for my own personal preference, he actually needs it late tonight to at least be thawed enough to apply a rub.
I like a full 24 hours in rub (or Dr Pepper marinade), but thats a personal preference.
