Received this red oak in the January '13 exchange from Smoke Em If Ya Got Em. Really excited to use them as I have never smoked with oak, and as Tom says, it's the "queen" of cooking wood. My question is the large pieces of bark. They are 2-4 oz each. Is that too much bark for a smoke? Smoke Em himself wasn't sure either, so answer for both of us! I did a search on the forum and found great reviews for red oak itself, but a few negative comments on using the bark. I typically use wood from Cookshack which has maybe .25 inch of bark, but these are huge. What say you?
