In most cases it should be fine. You may need to adjust cooking times & liquids to have everything come out right though.

If you are making tabouli, you can use substitute quinoa too.,

I think their flavors are different since barley comes as a whole and bulgur is a cracked wheat. I think couscous is a better alternative.

I would also highly recommend to try purchasing hard to find ingredients online. I just did a quick search on the internet and seems like this store carries bulgur. I wish you luck!
