Mustard wont leave any taste and the smoke flavor does come through. IF you have it, try peanut oil. Lighty rub it on, then put on your favorite rub. Let it sit out of the frig for a bit so the meat can come to room temp, and the rub "melts" on the ribs. You'll get a great bark!
Just for your (or anybodies )info.... KCBS turn in times are always the same, unless there is a special circumstance, which would be published in any info about the comp.

Dino's are the ribs off the Rib Roast or "Prime Rib". Lots of fat. Remove the rib membrane and cut off as much of the excess fat that you can. Dont worry, plenty of fat is ther. Put your favorite rub on and smoke. No need to foil ( the excess fat will keep them moist). I do Dinos alot...
Cooked with the Smokin Scottsmen in Hammond this year. Great event, except its in downtown Hammond, next to night clubs, and the train tracks run about every 35 minutes (the tracks are about 30 yards behind the cooking area)
TY. The frame is just scrap iron. Went to a welding and fabrication shop down the street. Gave him the deminsions, and he made it from stuff he had lying around for $50.
When I got it home, used a hand grinder and removed all the "nasty stuff", oiled it, and took a blow torch to it to season it.
Did one last month, a 108 lber. First one, fairly easy, but labor intensive. If its just you, the mrs, and the kids, like others have said, do a butt or whole shoulder. But if you are dead set about doing a pig, get a suckling (you will have lots of leftovers)...
