Bob, I use it and I remove the bark also. Just take a hatchet and strike between the wood and the bark where it has been cut. If it's seasoned, the bark comes off pretty easy.

Yeah, 12 feet of limb is gonna take a bit. LOL! I just removed the bark from what I needed and left the rest for next time. Let us know how it turns out with the bark on.

FWIW, I've used chunks with bark on and chunks with bark off, and have ot been able to detect any difference at all.

cherry bark may not be as bitter as some others. Cut off what you need,
and let the rest continue to age...it'll get easier each time.

I also have used cherry chunks with bark, and thought I detected a bit
of a bitter taste, but it may be bacause I used to much.

I agree with Bruce, I've never been able to tell a difference. I wouldn't worry too much about the bark. 9 out of every ten logs I've been using have bark on them and they go in the firebox with the bark if it doesn't just pull off.

Bob, I use cherry almost exclusively and leave the bark on. If you burn a clean fire I don't think it matters.

PS I was in Lancaster over Thanksgiving getting a new dog

Leave the bark on! You cannot tell the difference.

What type of Dog brought you the whole way to Lancaster?[/quote]

I went to operation Scarlet and got a Rescue Shar-pei. Gentleman JAck is a 6 year old dog that lived 5 years in a garage. He never went outside and was fed raw hot dogs thrown on the floor. He wasn't house trained so he was hard to adopt out. Two families took him home and returned him. So far he hasn't had a accident in a week and a half and my whole house is open to him. I'm able to come home from work throughout the day and walk him. I'm looking forward to the spring when I can re-open my dog door and just let him come and go as he pleases. The rescue is on South Queen Street, a different side of Lancaster then you see on the tourist brochures.

If you're really worried about the bark you can start a fire and put each log on top of the fire ... then pull the logs off when the bark expands off the wood.. and the bark will fall right off .... when I'm doing a long smoke IE brisket or butts I fire up the weber kettle and put the logs that I'm going to use for the smoke in the kettle to get bark off... you can do this the day before as well... a bit of a process... but then I'm obsessed that way #-o #-o 8-[
