I am struggling to get TBS and not Thick Nasty Grey.
So I read that it was caused buy to much un burned fuel, So I started with lump wood charcoal in a chimney go that going put it in the smoker and waited until the smoke was barely visible. I then put two large logs in thick smoke came as expect I waited a I bit turned the log, waited a bit more turned it again, this last time it was completely on fire. After that I closed the intake to put out the fire and checked the logs and they where black all over no signs of bark or wood color.
Yet still I have thick nasty grey smoke, do I have to wait until the logs are glowing red? really try to get TBS.
I have a Brinkman Tailmaster Vertical with hing mode and both chamber and firebox gaskets as well as RTV, seal seems pretty good I don't see any smoke escaping. I am using pecan wood that is about 10 to 12" long and about 1.5 to 2" thick.
I am attempting to hang my ribs this time to see if that gets better coverage compared to slicing them and putting them on a rack
Thank you all kindly,
