I have gone to Titebond II Extend for all of my complicated glue-ups. It has an open time of 20 minutes, and it will allow you to reposition the joint as needed. It is a little runny compared to regular Titebond II, but for me it is worth it to know I can relax and glue-up assemblies with a dozen mortise and tenons at one time. Glue strength in my testing is stronger than the wood fibers of white oak (same as regular Titebond II).
Titebond II Extend comes in a white container, and is available in several sizes, including gallons. It is available through Amazon.
