Any one using bark to smoke with?

Here is a nOOb question.
Anyone using bark for there smoke? The reason I ask is I had a Texas boy and work tell me that using just the bark from Oak and Nut trees makes good BBQ smoke when placed on coals.

Any truth to this? or better yet is anyone doing this?

There is a lot of flavor in the bark. I don't like using bark with a lot of moss or fungi on it.

When I use my stick burner I do not purposely take the bark off...but I have never just thrown only bark in the box either...never noticed a better or worse taste because of it.

Bark is where the flavor is at. Throw it in there.

Bark will give good smoke but little to no heat

Beware the temptations to just pull fresh bark from trees to use....

Green/un-dried bark can tend to impart a very bitter flavor in your cook
