Howdy all So now that I’ve been smoking for a couple of months I keep running into the same issue. I can’t seem to get a good TBS out of my GSOM. I’m getting white smoke and a lot of it.. I mean a LOT of white smoke.
Temps are at 225-240 as confirmed by digital thermometers as in plural. I’m using chunks I bought from fruitawoodchunks.com and only putting 1 chunk in at a time and covering it with the lid. I start out with what seems to be decent blue smoke then after about 30 minutes the white smokescreen starts. If I check on the wood it’s about 80% black with the top of it still wood-ish colored. I’ve gotten into the habit of dumping the chunk and putting in a new one every 30 min or so to keep away the nasty white smoke but this isn’t working well for me. #1 I’m using a TON of wood and #2 I hate having to do this every 30 min.
I’m thinking the wood might be flaring up or catching on fire and I’m absolutely perplexed how anyone uses more than 1 chunk at a time. Doesn’t that just make a crazy amount of smoke?
Anyway I had an epiphany this morning and was wondering if the larger wood boxes when full actually smother the fire and smoke less? Anyone else have issues with the GOSM doing this and how did you resolve it?
