Mustard Slather

Hey do many of you guys use a mustard slather before you apply your rubs? I've been using one for a few months now, and have been pleased with the results.

Most of the time I don't worry about it. I do rinse with white vinagar before a rub.

I've done both and can't tell much difference. There is some, but minimal.
The salt in the rub draws out mosture close to the surface and makes that paste, then just another dusting of rub and into the cooker.

I use it quite often, depending on what I'm cooking. I like the texture of the bark better.

Use it mainly on pork butts, rarely on brisket, not on ribs. I really don't notice any appreciable benefit though. I tend to rub the meat about 4 hours or so prior to the cook and then another light dusting just before hitting the fire.

I personely find Worch sauce too heavy handed for me. a little oil and rub is all I use.

I've tried mustard before rub on butts meh ... wouldn't bother with it again ... big mess for little difference in my attempt ... I like 'double rub' ... rub, overnight, rub, cook like with Mr Brown rub

ribs with a mustard slather might be interesting though

As usual, I can't make up my mind, so I use both worchestershire and yellow mustard. Guess if mustard is good to use and so is W sauce then using both must be twice as good !!

I've never tried it because long ago I was told you couldn't tell the difference. Figured, why waste the mustard and the money.

Give it a try and let us know.
