hehehe good one, now sit! stay away from my leg! Hey!!
There are alot of opinions on Bark. I think that charcoal and wood smokers get a different bark than electrics, or propane models. ( I didn't say better, I said different)
I wait to foil my smoked meats longer than alot of people who foil, and I don't spritz/mop until meats start to look dry, at least 2-3 hrs into the smoke(fatties are an exception, because of the short smoke time).I like bark, and most folks I know, or cook for do too. The rub that you use has alot to do with it, and I think that the rub going on my meats at least 8 hrs before smoke makes a HUGE difference. I have tried the mustard massage( hehehe, thats what someone at the last comp called it), and I have found no difference in the bark or the taste, at least in the stuff I have smoked, so I don't bother with it anymore.
Just my opinion on this subject. Come on Rich, roll over!
Oh yeah...............................GO WINGS!!!
