    We are a three mustard family. Annie’s for me, Beaver spicy for Mrs. Obsessed and
    French’s yellow for hot dogs. Yeah, probably too many times at Kezar and Candlestick Park in my youth.:rolleyes:

    Thin out some yellow mustard with apple cider vinegar, and use it as a "slather" for barbecue before you put on your dry rub seasoning; sticks to the meat and gives you a nice barky finish.

    Maybe it is. If that basement is a magical place where wonderful and amazing things are made.

    IME different mustards are for different purposes.

    Yellow mustard has its place, but if it's the only mustard in your cupboard, it's time to explore!

    I don't think there is a definitive "American" mustard, maybe I'm wrong?

    "Learn me" is VERY poor grammar. Do you mean TEACH me?

    Not at all, just read your post explaining how spicy brown mustard is all you use.

    Anymore, I'll only eat yellow mustard if I buy a Cuban sandwich. We don't even own any these days. I strongly prefer spicy brown, or horseradish mustard.

    What are you putting it on?

    I like French's mustard on hot dogs.

    Mustard is nasty. That’s about it. It can be tolerable in small doses on hot dogs/burgers.

    Another Heinz fan here. I only thought French's was best. I was wrong, very wrong.

    I'm a "brown" mustard kind of guy when I have the choice, typically Gouldin's or similar. However, just like many condiments, there are many, many versions out there for us to try and mustard is no exception.

    What I don't like, is "overuse" of anything...

    Look up Raye's Mustards based in Maine - all ground and no cooking involved. Several years ago we toured their place. Fairly small in size. Their mustard selection is huge and they are excellent.

    I don’t really get the question or a lot of the responses.

    Do y’all feel sophisticated for liking Brown or Dijon or something? Why?

    News flash:
    - I’m looking at a bottle of yellow mustard and an bottle of brown right now.
    - the ingredients are … identical. In identical order.
    - both are organic. No chemicals. No additives.
    - different proportions, preparations, and who knows, different mustard seeds or grinding procedures (?) are all that separates them.

    Oh, and for those that don’t seem to realize this, ground yellow mustard seed is … yellow. It does not require artificial coloring.

    French's definitely the best we can get here in the uk for a hot dog, the supermarkets do there own 'american' mustards - they are sugar loaded yellow rubbish - I bought one once, tried it and threw it straight in the bin!
    Loads of great mustards for other things available , I like the bobbly dijon for putting in a salad dressing. Gotta be Colman's with a steak though!

    American mustard is to mustard, what Hershey's is to chocolate.
