Default Mustard based sauce on St Louis Ribs?

I have almost always done sweet ketchup style sauces on my ribs with very good results. I was wondering if anyone has had success with a Carolina gold sauce. The sauce is awesome!

It would never occur to me to even try.:)

Mustard sauce has never been my all. I know a ton of folks who seem to love it,though.

Carolina gold is really good. Used mine on some Loin Chops during football season.

Why not cook the ribs un-sauced and serve the mustard sauce on the side? It works on pork butt, so should work on ribs.

If it tastes good, eat it! I really like mustard based sauces, coleslaw, etc.

My former favorite BBQ place (Stillwell Smokehouse) used to offer toamato based and mustard based sauces on the side. Both were delicious. Bought several bottles of each and used both at home. Usually would make 2 slabs and finish them with different sauces. Too bad the place burned down and the sauce is unavailable... But then I found Blues Hog and Cowtown and quit mourning.

All comes down to personal preferences,if you like the mustard based sauces then it should be a hit for you. For me, the jury is still out on the mustard sauces, I've only tried a couple so far, I found them to be ok, but I am willing to keep trying, I figure I'll find one I like eventually.

Having grown up is S.C. i thought all sauce was yellow. Try it youll love it. You can always modify it make the mustard a little less forward. I now know that bbq sauce comes in a variety of colors. But you still see the mustard based sold in gallon size bottles here.

Mixed up a batch of Shack Attack yesterday and going to try it out on some ribs this weekend. I think the mustard sauce sounds great.

Isn't this a bit like putting a "Virgina Is For Lovers" tattoo on a Oregonian?


Then again, perhaps Oregonian's need love too....

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
