Really did not taste the mustard as she stated. I am always with an open mind but so far not impressed, now what to do with all this left over sugar rub?. That flavor sure would not win a contest down here imo.
Toss it or doctor it up. I've made some rub from recipes out of books and just wasn't impressed. I kinda doubt this is her real comp recipe and if it is, then I bet she has a few secrets she's keeping to herself. It's crazy to think how winning flavors vary so wildly. Even within parts of TX itself.
