The components of evoo that give it it's special flavor are volatile and ruined by cooking. Evoo is correctly used to dress foods not cook them. Similarly the coarse quality of regular cooking onions is destroyed by heat making them the logical and less expensive choice for cooking while leaving sweet onions for eating raw.

When you are using a pan to cook do you usual oil the pan or oil the product? I oil the product it usual give crispier skin.

I use zesty Italian dressing. It's less expensive and works great. Adds a bit of flavor on smaller pieces like chicken quarters.

I'm Italian, and I keep multiple olive oils in my pantry. EVOO is not the right OO for every application.

As for making a rub or seasoning stick to a piece of meat or some veggies, I use a light OO, or a canola. On veggies, I use a spray oil -- usually canola.

I have about ten oils in my pantry. Every one has its one purpose.

Going back to the OP. I generally don't use any oil, or mustard, or anything else to make my rub stick. When I have experimented with oils and dressings, I haven't found a major difference in the final product. But, it certainly didn't hurt anything.

On a short cook, like a steak done in ten minutes, spices and oils make a lot more of a difference than they do on a long, slow cook, IMO.

Low and slow, again IMO, is more forgiving than a quick grill.

There is no corrolation between commercial supermarket EVOO and fresh local produce EVOO.
The second one is fine for cooking with, the intense antioxident factor keeps it stable at temps and the flavour is fantastic.
Chefs are people too, they learn from being told and propogate the myths all over the media.
