Short of checking wax on the end pieces there wont' be any undesireable "stuff" on that type of wood.

The problem with it is, the kiln drying process removes a substantial part of the desireable compounds in the wood that provide flavor for cooking. It will still smell good when you burn it, and will impart some flavor to the meat, but no where near the flavor of proprely seasoned wood that hasn't been kiln dried.
