Construction Adhesive advice

Want to do a project tomorrow, exterior use, exposed to water, possibly lots at times but not submerged. Is there a recommended brand/type that any of you have used and can confirm will work? I will be using screws too, just want the extra strength.

Once it sets up, screws become redundant.

I did some testing of various adhesives for some stone to wood products at one point. Liquid Nails was the winner by far over all similar products I found at big box store. Been using it for all sorts of stuff for years. Never had a failure.

Is this wood-to-wood?
If the adhesive will be subject to weather, lots of silicones and exterior caulks are suitable. If it's for panel-to-stud connection, and the panel protects from weather, many of the 'liquid nails' products are just fine. The only problem, is that a moist chunk of wood will stretch, and the glue won't (so you want a weak glue, that's kinda stretchy).

I've had Liquid Nail and 5200 both fail.
I'm a hard core epoxy guy. There are others, but West System was MADE for wood.

Yeah, probably right. Epoxy, yes but maybe expensive\difficult for this application but I always have T11 or (whatever the number is) on hand and love it.

PL Premium polyurethane is good stuff for those conditions. I've even used it on small boats for joints that are under water and it has held up fine. (I'm talking about a boat that is removed from the water when not being used, not one that stays in the water...)

Life happened, didn't get to it the other day, and it rained all day today. I may try tomorrow, no sign of 3M adhesives in HD or Rona here, I'm in Canada. Plenty of PL products or DAP adhesives, it is straight wood to wood, pressure treated.
