Everyone in my family loves it. I have eaten pulled pork and briskets before with very little bark and I much prefer the thick bark.

I have used baked beans recipes that call for burnt ends, but somehow i never have any of them to spare for some reason.

I think bark is overrated also. I trim the fat so only the thinest possible fat cap is left and use a sugar free rub. Better that way.
I like women too.

Ruff, RUUUUFFF. Bark rules!!!

I do foil, after about 5+- hours on smoke. When foiling, I spray it down pretty
good. The bark isn't nearly as crusty & hard as it once was. The family used
to not care for bark, now they're barkaholics...

I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

It's funny you ask. Just last night I was picking out some bark from a frozen bag of left over que in the freezer and my wife looked at me and said "you've got to be kidding me". To which I replied, "Oh honey it's my new invention. The pork-cicle! She apeared to gag. I LOVE BARK!

I love bark, but have some here that don't so I shred it as fine as possible and mix it all together for added flavor! Works well

I love a nice piece of bark. But then again, I chew the fat like bubble gum.

Do you typically like jerky?

This is a surprising thread. I'm mostly surprised at how many people don't like bark. I think a properly done bark is one of the most important pieces of smoked meat.

Properly done, it is to die for. If it is dry, bitter (burned sugar and creosote) and tastes worse than an old roasted shoe, I'll pass!

Surprised me too!
My bark is a bit crusty and soft and holds the flavours of the rub.
No bitter,burned taste....even my blackest porkneck turned out tasty and boy was that 1 black!!!
