I don't think that the definition of larding is correct on the FAQ.

My understanding is that larding involves using a special tool called a larding needle to insert a narrow strip of fat intramuscularly in a lean piece of meat.

Barding is more in line with the definition that we are providing for larding in that it is defined as covering the exterior of a piece of meat or poultry with a thin layer of bacon or salt pork or fat back for the majority of the cooking process in order to ensure a moist finished product. The fat is generally removed at the end of the cooking process in order to allow the maillard reaction to take place which gives a better appearance, texture, and flavor to the exterior of the product.
