    i just received some bitternut hickory for my smokers, i have not used this type of wood yet and have a few questions in regards to the wood. i know that it is a good wood to use but some of the logs i have look to have some moldy looking stuff on the outside of it along with moss. is this OK to use? do i need to get rid of the bark? anyone that can assist me with these questions would be great!!! thanks!!!!!

    Is it lichens rather than mold?
    Do you have pics?

    Regardless, in my opinion, it's best to remove the bark.
  3. I agree with Martin  ^^^   get rid of the bark  [​IMG]

    & yes post some pics so we can see for sure what you have.

  5. @grease,
    Yeah, It's mostly lichens with a bit of algae and moss.
