Default Behind The Neck Chin-ups for Biceps?

I've been doing some bodyweight training and I wanted to target my biceps. Since I don't have dumbbells I had to rely on my pull-up bar for anything related to pulling, hence using close grip chin-ups for biceps.
However I thought about doing behind the neck medium grip chin-ups since they appear to use more biceps during the movement. Yes, I'm aware of using proper form to prevent injury as pointed out in the lat pulldown technique article.

My questions lies with whether or not using BTN chin-ups would add more intensity for biceps or am I just better off continuing CG chin-ups.

Stick to normal CG chins. No need to complicate things for minuscule benefit (if any at all?).

Not exactly your question, but if you're looking to diversify your workouts, you can often find decent deals on adjustable dumbbell sets if you poke around.
