Bark on wood

When using wood chunks (specifically mesquite and hickory) does it matter that the wood has bark on it, i.e., does the bark compromise the flavor added by the wood. Yhat is, does the bark have a bite?

    birdman,[p]I have never experienced flavor changes by using wood with the bark on it. I use it like that all the time in fact. Living in West Virginia I have a large selection of trees to scavage limbs from for smoking use. Wood chunks that you buy still have the bark on it.[p]It might be worth doing an experiment to see if there is any taste difference at all... no bark on wood vs bark on wood, but I doubt if the results would show much if any variance.[p]-Boccie
