Hi,
I usually use a mustard rub for my ribs and really like the results.
I have a friend who has an allergy to mustard, so i was wondering what I could use to replace it.

Would really appreciate any ideas you might have.

Thanks,
Cam

CamG - Mustard helps hold the rub on. Many use for shoulder and brisket. It is not necessary. The say mustard does not change flavor profile. Try just your rub without a mustard slather.

Cactus is right.

For years I used nothing but rub. Put as much rub on as will stick to the meat, wait a few minutes and it will get wet. If you want more rub, it will adhere to the dampened rub and more will stay on the meat.

Another option is to use Worcestershire sauce instead of mustard. You might even be able to use a BBQ sauce if its flavor compliments your rub's spices, but some BBQ sauces contain a small amount of mustard so check first.

Cam, are you referring to dry mustard? I wonder if the specific allergen would be deactivated by the heat and smoke of the fire, especially if you used a higher temp like 350.

Would think dry mustard would be worse for an allergy.
