Bark or no bark?

When you smoke (or cook) with wood do you remove the bark? I've heard different things but want to know from you all. Thank you, Joel

I have never removed bark. It should burn up pretty fast anyways.

Maybe you need to start a poll on this.

I leave the bark on too.

I remove the bark. Bark usually has a higher percentage of tannins in it. Which could give off a bitter smoke when burned. Oak specifically is one that has a higher amount of tannins in the bark and is used in the tanning process of hides.

I burn with the bark on in my offset. Unless I'm adding wood chunks to charcoal or lump. Then I tend to burn bark-less wood.

Sorry guys, had an early job call in for this morning. Thank you for the replys. I personally don't think it matters too much but I am no expert by any means. And I've only used pecan for the cook as I haven't found anything else in my area yet.
