    mustard chicken w/ memphis dust

    In the past I made this I'm curious what you think. I covered a chicken in normal mustard than add very light sprinkles of Memphis dust to it. It tasted great I'm curious what would be the best n mustard covered chicken?

    Always just used oil or butter for chicken, never tried mustard.

        I did a mustard crust on a couple hams. It was a finishing crust mixed with egg and bread crumbs.

        I've heard you get more mustard flavor with mustard powder, rather than regular mustard, when applying it "pre-cook." Many cooks use mustard to help the rub adhere.

          doesn't the wet of the mustard help the smoke stick better?

            It should help. Chickens are like sponges for smoke anyways.

          I use melted butter and then mix in Dijon mustard until it becomes a paste and then add a few shakes of Worchestershire sauce to taste. Then I dredge the chicken breasts in a 50/50 mix of Italian bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Then I line a small sheet pan with tin foil and put an elevated cooling rack on it so the breasts have complete airflow while cooking. I set the BGE at 350 degrees and bake it about 35 minutes to an internal temp of 160 degrees. It's one of the most requested dishes I serve to friends and family. Try it you'll like it.

            That's been my go to chicken dish for 15 years. It's hard to beat.

          Dr. Blonder said in his "Smoke" seminar that mustard lowers the pH (makes the meat surface more acid) which makes it less likely to show a smoke ring. (See at about 53 minutes into his video.) For that reason, he says, when he wants mustard as part of his flavor profile, he adds it to the meat later in the cook (after 1-2 hours), after it has absorbed most of the smoke flavor that it can. I thought this was an interesting notion, and thought I'd pass it on. For more info, he discusses the role of pH in this PDF. Check out page 29.

            The PDF has loads of great information. Thanks for posting the link.

            I have been using Meathead's dry brine method on my ribs. thinking next time give quick rinse under water, pat dry, apply olive oil and Memphis Dust and see if I get a better smoke ring.
