  1. I know that putting yellow mustard on butt makes a good bark.
    Does anybody know if it works on chicken [​IMG]

    I don't see why it would hurt, but chicken doesn't really get a bark like pork or beef, as far as I know.

    I've only heard them cluck........I'm sorry, couldn't help my self [​IMG]
    Seriously, I have never obtained bark on chicken, only a good dark crispy skin. I imagine the skin would prevent a bark from forming but I've never tried for it on a skinless one. I'm sure some one here will have the answer soon.

    I was thinking the same thing L&S!

    I've never seen "bark" on a chicken but you can get nice crispy skin with a layer of rub is that what you mean?
  7. I was thinking how mustard would react on chicken, Iam going too try it out.
    Thanks, John C.

    You know the last time I put mustard on my butt I think I got it in the wrong spot... I'm pretty sure I was howling. [​IMG] But hey everyone says they do that so I do too.

    Chicken bark = ****-a-doodle-woof [​IMG]
    I don't think you'll get an actual bark on the chicken without maybe dredging it ??? Maybe someone else has done it.

    Were did you get the idea that mustard causing good bark. [​IMG]
    I always thought the only reason for the mustard was to help the rubs adhear to the meat better.

    As to chickens, the only "bark" on any of my chickens is when one gets out and Scooter thinks its a cat.

  11. Everybody here says that the mustard causes bark to form and allows spices to adhere better.
    Have you tried it.

    Ya beat me to it..........[​IMG] Seriously, I dont think they would develope a bark if smoked. When you do a butt, brisket, or other cut of meat, it doesn't have skin on it so the mustard and seasoning become "the skin". By covering up the chicken skin, seems like it wouldn't be able to brown, or even cook. When the chicken is done, the meat will be smoked, but the skin would just peel off in a soft mushy pile.

    Just my .02cts worth.

    Now, if you skinned the yardbird, that would be another story...........Would just need to keep the meat moist.
