a little bit of bark would not worry me.

But poplar mixed in and other softwoods would.

Poplar pops ash on my pizzas (ask me how I know!)

It's also not so easy (for me) to tell seasoned poplar from other woods like cherry or butternut.

Still looks like good stuff to me!

My pallet company source is still not operating due to lack of work - I'm going to need to find another source soon!

Christo, you have trouble with poplar?
My new source has a ton (literally several). I burned some last weekend, other than a bit of cracking (no loud pops), I had no issues. Not sure if kiln drying matters, but, mine is all kiln dried cut offs from cabinet and millwork shops.
Just to be safe, I will save my good oak and hickory for when the cooking begins, use the poplar for heat up.

me too - anything that looks like poplar and softwood used for heat up and switch to oak or hickory for dinner time!

my poplar is not kiln dried.

I have used poplar, But luckily it was sitting for almost 2 years, seemed to work fine but i will remember to use it for heating up in the future..
