I just got finished with my RF smoker. I am using cowboy lump and soakedwood chucks. Got it up to temp but isn't smoking after wood chuncks are put in. I did a quick search but didn't find anything. Thank you for your help

Just remember - you don't want while billowing smoke - that is bad smoke. You want think blue, barely noticable smoke. Take a wiff, if you smell smoke you are dead on.

Good luck!

If it smells sweet then smoke is coming out even if you can not see it.  Open your chamber up and take a good wiff it should smell well like BBQ.

Glad to hear everything worked out for ya. 

How was the smoke ring? 

 

Most of the time while I cook on my drums there is no visible smoke at all. 

 

And the no pic no proof thing, I guess we can let ya slide this time. But after like 20 post its a real deal rule. LOL

The smoke ring and flavor was a lot more than I expected. Ring was about 1/4 inch all the way around on the tri tip. Smoke seemed to penetrate all the way throuh the ribs. I used apple wood for smoke since I was doing ribs knowing that misquite would have been pretty strong of a flovor. For sure next time ill get a picture for u guys
