Baby Backs meet Yellow Mustard

I cooked some baby backs and explored the cheap yellow mustard goop technique. The ribs were quite good although I am not convinced the mustard made a whole lot of difference in taste or moisture content.
However watching the mustard disappear was interesting.
To see the results check out the link below.

    ravnhaus, The idea of the mustard is to apply a 'thin' coating of mustard and a 'heavier' application of rub.
    The end result will provide a 'crust' effect on the meat.
    When I do this process, there is no visible sign of mustard after the rub is applied and prior to cooking....But hey, your ribs look awesome using your process.[p]Marv

    ravnhaus,[p]this is your best work to date. [p]did you see a post by a guy calling himself rumrunner on that "other" board where he cuts up a spare rib, so that it looks like a baby back? I tried it and it saved me a few pennies[p]Might have to do spares this week and see if I catch the same magic.[p]CB
  • ravnhaus,[p]So how did the lemon go with the ribs? I've never tried that.. BTW that's a lot of mustard... I'm surprised the ribs weren't pickled...

    I, too, want to know about the lemon in your scrumptious-looking photo! Have eaten a whole lot of ribs in my time but have never eaten them with lemon but after seeing your pic, I am thinking that it just might be awesome......I know a good hefty squirt of lemon in a freshly opened can of sardines elevates them to the gourmet level!

    The wife uses lemon on everything. I just grabbed one for a little color on the plate. If she ate ribs she would use lemon on them.
