cut back on the amount of wood you are using.

grills don't cause bitter flavors. Your answer lies in the other
variables.

Are your vents open on the lid? If not the stale smoke can cause bitter taste in the meat.

What the Cap'n said, the grill is not the cause.

Wood is not the only cause for bitterness when grilling or smoking. If you are using a rub that contains sugar and it's burning, that too will cause bitterness.

If not, then heed the other suggestions about the wood.
