I need some advice on getting a really good bark on a shoulder. My butts turn out great but I am still new to this and cant get that deep black bark at the end. HELP!!!!
The rich deep black bark your looking for can only be achieved from hours on the smoker. Sure you could get it black by just setting over the fire until its.... well burnt, but that totally not the same thing. I just happened across this when I first started just because I love standing outside with the grill. Another tip is to paint it with bbq sauce, this will be quicker due to the sugars in the sauce. So when your pork has that bark but its not done just wrap it in tin foil with juice or you can put it in the crock pot (sometimes I do this) all night and have it ready to go in the morning like on a camping trip or whatever. Hope this helps
How come no one asked sparkimus prime to head over to Roll Call? Was it the crockpot comment?If you have eaten a fair share of BBQ from restaurants and other people then chances are you have eaten BBQ made with mustard :)
