Been smoking for just a little while and just switched to the WSM smoker. Wow its great on temp control. Question on setting up charcoal/Lump and wood chunks to get thin blue line of smoke.
I've been loading up the charcoal ring and putting a couple chunks of wood (3 or 4) buried in the charcoal, then minnion method to start it. I can control temps and food is turning out good. My question is, how do I get the thin blue smoke. As the charcoal burns and spreads it comes in contact with the wood chunk and big gray smoke billows out as wood catches fire.
What am I missing, is there a better way or is that the way it goes.
Hope that all made sense?
