    Good idea, but I think I would peel the bark.

      I'm with you gr8fl. We do that or just use small twigs of alder. However never heard about peeling the bark...

        some people peel the bark thinking it gives the fish a bitter taste

          Bradley alder pucks go for about $0.63 each, $30 for 48 pucks. 20 minutes per puck, so 3 per hour.

          4 hour smoke = 12 pucks = $7.50 a batch
