    Most people don't taste the mustard over the smoke and rub. Brown or Dijon have a slightly more pronounced flavor but pleasant, not overwhelming in any way...JJ

    +1 with jimmy. I use mustard all the time for my base to apply my rubs to. Rare to taste regular mustard. However I looked for different mustard with different flavors to try and capture it in the taste and so far I have only found one. I use a chipotle flavored mustard that will come through in pork and chicken. It is slight but the chipotle is there at the end with a hint of the mustard.
     
  4. Yea I've always thought that cheap yellow is used b/c you are not going to taste it anyway, it helps rub stick to it so no real reason to over spend on mustard.

    I don't even use mustard anymore.
    The rub sticks to the moist meat without any other binders.
