The mustard coating sounds good. Do you use sweet or spicy mustard?

I use standard French's yellow mustard.

The idea behind the mustard is simply to provide a sticky base for any rubs or seasonings to be applied. It's like a paste once they're combined, and sticks well to the meat. That being said, the mustard imparts a good flavor that's subtle. It's hard to describe, but it's delicious.

The mustard doesn't really impart much flavor, and is typically used more as a method to hold the rub spices in place. Most just use the cheapest yellow mustard they can find.

Edit: too slow.

Thanks for the tip, I've done a brown sugar/mustard coating on salmon before but never meat. I'll try it next time.

Myself and Dataz722 will be partaking in a BBQ competition this weekend at Fordham Brewering Co in Dover DE (only open to Ribs and Pulled Pork). The smoker will be loaded up with 3-4 pork butts, 2 chuckies, a fatty, and a bunch of ribs. We'll see how it goes, pics to follow

Hot smoked this duck with a Chinese five spice rub over cherry wood chips. Tasty goodness, going to use some of the leftovers for duck tacos with an Asian inspired slaw.

I found a pork picnic in the back of my freezer that's been there for 2 years. Here's hoping the smoke will save it! Covered in mustard then rubbed with Bad Byron's Butt Rub on hickory.

oh man! let us know how it turns out.

I have a picnic cushion hanging in the deep freeze as well. It's only been there a few months. Thinking about smoking it this week.

Prepping brines for the chicken and pork chops I am smoking tomorrow. The chops for dinner tomorrow and the chicken for a recipe that the wife has planned for during the week.
