how do to tell the difference between white smoke vs. blue smoke during the night?

post #1 of 7

Started smoking my 12 Ib pork butt about 11:00 p.m. and having trouble telling if it's white or blue smoke? For special reason I always had trouble telling the different color of the smoke during the night, is there some way easy way to tell during the night? I tried shinning a flash light at the smoke but that seems to do no good! LOL

How does it smell ?   I mean, if you are standing next to the pit and the smoke drifts towards you, is it a nice sweet smell that you can stand and bathe in ?   Or does it choke you and run you off ?

I can't confirm whether it's white or blue, but if it's a nice sweet smell, I think you'll be just fine  Thumbs Up

Your thinking is correct. TBS smells sweet and pleasant which is why we desire it so much to make meat taste so good. White smoke is acrid and burns your eyes and nose to smell it...JJ
