My new vertical smoker came in on tuesday. I assembled it wensday. And On thursday I got it to the yard and gave it a wipe down with canola oil and lit the charcoal and heated it up to 400. Then let it go and let the charcoal burn itself out. From the looks of it,I'll have to seal the door,both drawers,and around the stack.No big deal. My big question is,I was reading around and every place I looked,It said white smoke wasn't good.Let it turn blue.Ok,I prefer to use hardwood chunks over chip and noticed that when I put them in the smoke stays white while it burns.Can I mix the chunks in with the charcoal when I light the charcoal? Or do I throw it in after I fill the drawer?
Thanks in advance
BTW this is the smoker
