Sticking agent for ribs
Do most of y'all use mustard? I have always used mustard until my last rack and I decided to not put anything on them before I applied the rub. It turned out better IMO. It seems when I use mustard and then wrap them overnight while in the fridge they get real soggy sorta. In turn the bark on the ribs tend to take a little longer to form especially if doing baby backs on a 221. What's y'all's opinion and what do you prefer?

I use nothing, season salt, little dusting of rub, smoke & fire

I like to use bacon drippings. :-D

I take them out of the fridge, light the cooker, throw on the rub, and toss them on the pit when it gets to temp.

Depends on the rub I am using.

Peanut oil.

Recently, I've been using yellow mustard. I've also used peanut oil and nothing, it all works good.
I rub my ribs right before I put them on the cooker, not the night before. They sit for about an hour before going on.

Kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper, cumin and granulated garlic its heaven.

Zesty Italian dressing. It's cheap

I don't see any need really to use mustard or oil to get rub to stick to meat. I don't use anything and I don't have a problem with rub falling off.

I usually use a mustard slather that has beer, cider vinegar, light brown sugar, and some of my rub in it. but, I think I might just go plain salt, pepper and a little rub next time.

Good old fruit juice is my main reach for. Know some that use steak sauce, oil and mustard. That's one reason I use juices, to be different and to add a different hint of flavor. Steve

I put the rub on the meat while firing up and put it in the smoker when at temp, simple.
