    I have a few logs and wish to chunk them for smoking.

    Is it normal to remove the bark?

    If the wood wasn't sprayed with pesticides as far as known, I would leave the bark on, no problems.

    Well since I don't know the history I will start pealing bark!

    Good call, no sense in putting your Q in jeopardy.

    i like using just the heartwood as well, i used some apple tree trimmings, small branches etc last year and with the bark they gave off excessive smoke i thought.
