I smoked some chicken today and it went well, but it had some creosote overtones. My problem seems to be when I'm adding coal. I put the lump coal in the chimney and add them when they are red. I added apple wood to the smoker (offset) when the temp gets low and that's when I usually see the white smoke. How do I add wood/coals to the offset smoker without getting the creosote taste?
Here is a pick of the chicken:
