But if everybody liked bark there would be less bark for the ones who love bark.

Kinda like white meat vs. dark meat on chicken or lean vs. "moist" (aka fatty) brisket.

Me, i like fatty brisket with a li'l bark. Chicken, wings or thighs please.

I love bark, but I also make sure my rub has as little sugar as possible so it doesn't burn instead of bark. My smoker also uses a water pan to keep the moisture up. As several others have noted, I also mix the bark into the rest of the pork when pulling. At least, whatever little of it has survived being "sampled".

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. 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.

All depends on how it is cooked.

I don't use sugar in my rub. Even cooking my own Butts, I like it sometimes(when it isn't so thick and dry) and I don't like it sometimes.

I think that would probably be the opinion of most if all were eating the same piece of meat w/bark cooked well(good).

Hmmm...I wonder if there is a correlation between those who like the ones that bark, and those who cover in foil, or maybe just cover with paper bags...
