    Looking to start smoking ribs for the first time a rack of ribs,  my concern is, what can I rub onto my ribs before I put powdered rub on the ribs to keep the rub from falling off.  Could I put veg oil or something like that on the ribs prior to putting on the rub.

    You can use plain yellow mustard.

    No need for anything. The moisture from the ribs will keep everything on that's all you need.

    I use nothing as well. But a touch of oil would be what I would use over wasting mustard IMHO.

    I also use mustard before breading fish when I am going to fry them.  A good friend of mine taught me that many moons ago. 
  6. As case said above. You don't need to use anything for glue. Rub one side down Wait a few Min till it draws out a little  and becomes wet and turn and repeat.

    It works with any meat.

    Happy smoken.

    I like to use yellow mustard and I first pat down the meat to get rid of any excess moisture.  I do this for pork products only and I don't use this for poultry.   I like the bark/crust that I get with the mustard and rub
