I am going to smoke my first turkey tomorrow and want to put a rub on it. Do you think using yellow mustard for a rub glue would leave an unpleasant taste on it?
I have used it many times on pork, but never on poultry.

You won't notice any flavor from the mustard. I've used mayo as well.....or hot sauce......or just a simple mist of water. Nowadays I rarely use anything for a binder on any meats. Applying rub and allowing it to sweat( which only takes a few minutes) then turning meat to next side and repeating all over works just fine

For birds I either use nothing or olive oil

Late to the party, but... Try mixing your Rub with Soft Butter or better yet, Bacon Grease! Push 3/4 of this under the Skin, legs included, and in the Cavity. Rub the remaining on the Skin and smoke it...JJ

Spatchcock & Inject it with Tony’C’s marinade, then coat it with EVOO & Montreal chicken seasoning. Pull it out at an IT of 157 in the deepest part of the breast. Rest on counter for 1/2 hour covered loosely in foil & carve it up. Use the carcass to make gravy, boil it down & check out chef JJ‘s gravy recipes.

I generally use EVOO as my glue on everything
