It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Should I leave the bark on pecan wood?

A friend gave me some great pecan wood pieces. The wood still has the bark on it. Should I remove the bark before using it? If so, how? It looks like it will be a lot of trouble to remove the bark.

    The tool I use for making splits out of chunks is a construction hatchet. It has a waffled hammer head on the other end, and I just give the bark a smack. Most of it will peel right off by hand. I'm sure a claw hammer will work just fine.

    I've used pecan, oak, hickory, apple, cherry, peach, plum, sasafras, and malberry and have never removed the bark
