About 4:00am I started the fire, hickory charcoal and a hickory log. About 5:30am I put the Pork Shoulder Butt. It has been mostly blue smoke until about an hour ago. I fell asleep on the couch and the temp got down to about 165. So I put some more Hickory Char col on and another hickory log. But couldn't get the fire going again to bump up the heat. So I put in some paper and cardboard and got it going and then died out but the temp slowly started to rise up to about 260. It is now down to about 235, however it has been White Smoke for almost an hour now. So not sure how to stop the White Smoke and get it going to a Blue Haze or Blue Smoke. Also the Pulled pork is only about 145 temp after 8 hours, only risen about 5 degrees in the past 3 hours. This is my 3rd Pork Shoulder Butt I have made and don't won't to ruin it with to much White Smoke.
So if any one can give me any pointer's or suggestions I would appreciate it!
