Using wood with bark

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by dscheibe, Nov 20, 2014.

  1. I have some pecan wood I want to use for a smoke next week but most of the splits have bark on them.  Is it necessary to remove the bark or can I burn it without concern?  Thanks.

    I use a lot of pecan with the bark. It is seasoned though.

  8. I burn it bark or no bark. I throw loose bark away.

    If the barks thick, like ohia, I take it off; if it's thin I leave it on.

    Maybe it's just in my mind..but i always have a good smoke ring using bark..

    I was searching the site about using bark in my new smokehouse and ran across this thread..

    Does anyone else think bark causes a bigger smoke ring ???
