New member here and I have just started my first smoke with my new MES 40" - purchased due to the information in this forum!
I have taken pics along the way and will post a bit later once I figure out how.
I have a question regarding smoke color. I'm smoking a port butt and followed meowey's process using Billbo's rub (with a slight modification). The smoker is running about 235F and I am using pecan. I remember reading on these forums that the smoke color should be blue and that white and especially brown is bad. Well . . . i swear that the smoke coming out of the top vent is tinted brown and I'm now concerned that I'm going to end up with a very bitter smokiness.
Question - what causes this and how can it be prevented in the future?
