just wondering, for KCBS, which meat do you find has a sweeter flavor, generally speaking?

chicken or ribs?

It's a no brainer....ribs for sure. Judges want candy on a bone.

Normally I'd agree with y'all, but this year I've seen more candied chicken (honey-based in particular) than ribs come across the table.

is anyone experementing with actual candying techniques? i was thinking of packing ribs in sugar overnight like a straight sugar cure. also was thinking of using glazes like on candy apples.

What if you cut the ribs after cooking and then dunked them in a candy apple glaze...think of the color that would give!

You try it first and let me know how that works out for you. :becky:

Yes, something like that is being done. No question. Think sugar cure.

When judging, I usually find more sweetness on the chicken than the ribs, although there have been some ribs almost dripping with a syrup type sauce.

Personally, I'd rather have sweet chicken than sweet ribs. And DEFINETELY DON'T sweeten the pork or brisket!!!

For my money it's salty / spicy / sweet chicken and what Todd said about ribs.

I agree with both, but that was not an option.

I agree with candy on a stick for ribs. I have been trying more of a spicy chicken and have had mixed reviews but have gotten calls. We have got calls more times than not with the chicken but a bit inconsistant.

Not sure about ribs but I've heard that's the new trend in the pork category
