I have adapted my own sauce from one a local bbq place here local. It calls for ground mustard and I've always used it. I am finding it difficult to find enough ground mustard to make more than a few gallons at a time. Do I really even need this? Can I use prepared mustard instead? I'm planning on making 10 gallons for a fundraiser meal and I could only find 6 oz compared to the 20 oz it calls for. Plus that crap is unbelievably expensive for so little spice.

Generally ground mustard has a hotter flavor than prepared mustard, and so proportionally you need less ground mustard.

If you can find a local source of mustard flour, you can buy in bulk at reasonable prices... if you can't then use prepared mustard, the difficulties are balancing the other parts of the different flavors than prepared mustard will add, the vinegar for instance.

If using 20 Oz ground mustard, double, (or treble), the amount of prepared mustard to compensate.

Hope that helps?

Have you tried Amazon? You can get various quantities from a few oz's to 25 pounds.

You can also try believe it or not health food stores for whole mustard seed, not to buy from them but from their source. BTW Ten gallons of sauce ? Shocked for one event ? Are they doing a mud/sauce wrestling event...

Thanks for the info guys. Jess I usually do 3-5 gallons and always run out. I'm making sure I don't this time. Plus if I have a ton left over looks like my daughter will be giving sauce instead of candy at her school Valentine's party. I'm going to make a batch without it and see how different it is. I've always wondered what the mustard did cause I never use it for anything else. Must be why Wally world doesn't carry much of it.

Well, I checked and it doesn't come in #10 cans, but you can buy the powder in 25 boxes. I would have thought the food service industry would package mustard like they do ketchup.

Crap, I forgot I used to make the stuff. It's amazing how little it costs to make. An extra step to be sure but then you get to control the flavors. I use the "Recipe Source" for those recipes.
