If I go into 90% of the barbeque places in Central Texas, I won’t find a mustard sauce.  That’s just disappointing because I LOVE mustard.  I’m the kinda guy that puts mustard on a hotdog, tatter tots, heck, I even dip chicken quarters in plain ol’ yellow mustard.  But this is far from yellow mustard.  This has some kick, a little tang, and ends on a slightly sweet note.  It might not be a true Carolina mustard sauce, so that’s why I called it the Texas Mustard Sauce.

Texas Mustard Sauce

As you can see from the picture, this is best served on a pulled pork sandwich.  I actually drown my sandwiches in this stuff.  Heck, sometimes I even have some on the side for dipping.  When making the pictures you’re seeing… I had to taste test it (you know, to make sure it’s good) and ate a whole piece of bread and mustard alone.  Hah!

Don’t be scared to use this in the last 10 minutes of cooking chicken quarters or as a side dipping sauce with pork chops.  It’s a truly versatile sauce.

This is a truly versatile sauce that can be used as a covering for pulled pork to a dipping sauce for pork chops.  I even use it as a substitute for traditional bbq sauce when making chicken quarters, add the last 10 minutes and enjoy.



  • 3/4 cup Yellow mustard
    1/4 cup Brown/spicy mustard
    1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup honey
    1/8 cup brown sugar
    1 clove garlic
    splash of Worcestershire
    splash of liquid smoke
    1/21 tablespoon red pepper (to taste)
    Salt + pepper


Combine all ingredients into a small blender and combine.  Make sure the garlic has been completely mixed into the sauce.
