Hope that makes sense, for this type of smoker.
I should have mentioned that I use the CharGriller Pro. Yes, your comment makes sense. I find that when I put the chunks on hot coal, I get lots of white smoke. I suspect I am using too much wood. Then I saw a video in which the wood chunks were placed on a pan and on hot coal.
Notwithstanding, I've cooked a few pork butts which came out great... But I am trying to make it even better :)
