    My name's Jeremy. I currently live in Meridian, Idaho. (High Desert). Jesus led us here from California 5 years ago to help start a church , then he led us to South Thailand where we started another church , now he's got us back in Meridian to help again with the original church. I have a web/marketing company also  and while I was in Thailand, God gave me lots of grace . My wife got me a

  6. I do have one quick question. I've been reading about Smoking Baby Backs and some people prefer to put Mustard on prior to the rub, rather than just rub. What are the advantages of this?

    The mustard is simply a binder...something for your rub to stick to and adds no noticeable taste to the final smoked product.  Many people swear by it, I've found I don't really need it.  If you apply your rub to the naked ribs, then let it set for 10 or 20 minutes, the ribs will "sweat" enough moisture to adhere the rub nicely.  

  8. Awesome, thank you. So typically you will not use it and you don't let the rub soak in for more than 30min. Got it. Going to try it in a couple days!

    Welcome MeridianMan!! !!!

    I don't think Red meant don't let the rub on the meat more than 30 minutes.

    I think he meant, if you don't use Mustard first, let the Rub sit on the meat for at least 10 to 20 minutes, so the Rub will melt into the meat.

    I use Yellow Mustard first on Pork, and Worcestershire (Thick) first on Beef to help the Rub stick, however Red's way is good too.

    I usually put the Rub on the day before the smoke, but 2 or 3 hours is good too.

    If you didn't read the Terms of Service notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums. Rule #11......"Off Site Links are not allowed here at SMF" is something new. There are other simple guidelines for all of us to remember as we interact here.

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

  11. Thanks Kathryn... My apologies!
    So since I have the time put it on tonight then right? I'm going to start smoking about 7am using the 2-2-1 method. Thanks again!

    That sounds good to me---Then you'll be ready to go in the morning.

    Some people put more rub on before putting it in the smoker too. I did that once, and it ended up too spicy for us.
