Iv'e never ruined a cut with bark on.

Now I'm not throwing hunks of pure bark on the fire mind you, but if I get a box of cut up peach limbs (thanks nthole) or cherry chunks (thank Phil) with some bark on, it don't seem to matter much.

Someone down in AL was gonna send some maple (I think it was). Wouldn't hesitate to use it if there was some bark present :)

CWF,
I just don't have to deal with bark on the Oak I use. Cut 3-5 cords a year and just pick out the Primo for smoker wood.
I don't like bark on my wood in storage because that is where the "buggies" love to built their nasty little homes, especially in Oak.
I have some Apple in stock with thin bark on there like glue. Gonna "burn away" when I am ready to use it.
Picking up (I hope) some Orange wood compliments of Hurricane Charley next week. Will be mostly branches with bark on. Not gonna worry.
Just get off what you can and "smoke on"
Just my nickle.

I've always been a bark on guy. Used hickory, cherry, apple and red oak all with bark on and never had any problems.

If its thick and loose and easy, off it comes and I throw it into the beds for more mulch. If its a job to remove, then I never obsess about it and never noticed any difference.

Will buggies ruin your fire? I thought they might add character

Actually, maybe some protein
I had a couple of little buggies on some old Oak.
Laid the peices on top of the firebox to preheat.
Had a ball waching them scurry from side to side to side looking for a way off the wood--Too funny
I could almost hear tiny little squeeky voices saying "Help me, Help me" in terror.
So, I did--
A final "flick of the fingernail" and they were crispy critters.

Speaking only for hickory; I've found if the wood isn't properly seasoned having the bark on can make the smoke especially bitter. Heavy bark on seasoned wood doesn't affect taste but can produce flyaway ash that can goop up the bark on your foodstuff. I use a sharp machete to shave the rough stuff off anything large enough to split. It's the wood that makes it good.
