We have tons of white oaks around my house which means tons of oak bark! Personally I just clean mine off in hot water and shake as much water off as I can and my large loves it. But in terms of baking?

If it's one piece of bark I'd make sure it's moist first, because if you put it in dry at any temp It can potentially start burning, others correct me but I think a good start would be at 300 and for like 10 minutes.

Long enough to kill any bugs, worms or parasites that may be in it.

Don't bake too hot, like maybe 200. Keep an eye on it, but 20-30 mins should do it.
