Made these last weekend. I tried using mustard for the first time. They turned out pretty good, and I will probably use mustard again. After the mustard, I applied my rub, and put 'em on the large with some apple chunks for 4 hours or so. Then applied a bit of Bone Sucking Sauce(original).

I also did an 8lb kind of a Porchetta style. I used oilive oil, garlic, fennel, parsley, and some fennel seed. Did that indirect with a pan underneath filled with water, fennel, celery, garlic, and some more rosemary. Caught all the drippings, and made a tasty sauce to pour over the pulled pork. I toasted some ciabatta rolls, and served with a nice sharp provolone. Made for some very tasty sandwiches! Sorry....I forgot to take pics of the butt.

We took it all up to the coast of Maine to share with family.

    Nice looking ribs. I'm new but agree with the mustard, then rub - Dizzy Pig Original. Bone suck sauce. All cooked per Carwash Mike's rib class.

    Thanks....they were pretty tasty!

    Never tried the Dizzy Dust, but I might pick some up soon. I have always made my own rubs, and have really good results with them. But, I may just have to try some Dizzy Pig rubs.

    And yes, I know I have read about using mustard many times over the years, but it was some recent posts about Car Wash Mike's method that finally pushed me to try it. I will definitely use his method again.

    I'm not sure what was more beautiful, The ribs or the picnic spot.

    I like the mustard. Using it seems to reduce the amount of rub I use. Since I use the dizzy pig mostly, I try to be efficient with it. Stuff is as expensive as powdered gold. Try some swamp venom on BB's. Absolutely awesome.

    Thanks wife and I prefer no sauce, but every now and then I get the urge for a bit of sauce.

    ribnrun....I just ordered some Dizzy Dust....didn't get any Swamp Venom, as it sounded a bit too hot?

    I hope to bribe my way back to my cousins place in Maine with some more ribs!

    Swamp venom is spicy, but it is not super hot. I forget that spicy is not everyone's thing. Dizzy dust has similar flavor, but is less spicy.

    I used to love hot n stomach will not allow it anymore. I do sneak in some hot food now and then, but I usually pay for it.
