I know many people on the forums are getting great results with their pellet smokers and tubes. I have question regarding their use. Most of the videos I've seen online look like white smoke to me and not blue smoke. Granted, it's a thin, very controlled white smoke.
I'm not trying to pick on anyone, just want to make sure I really understand before I spend more money on smoking toys. In the video above, at the 3:40 mark, to me that looks very much like white smoke. If it was heavier, it would be like the white smoke cloud you get out of a MES after loading a new set of chips/chunks.
The video below is of the A-Maze-N tube smoker. Video is not linking to the right spot, but at the 5:00 minute mark he opens the grill and you can see the smoke inside. Looks a lot like opening a MES with chip load.
Is the above the typical smoke output of the A-Maze-N smokers?
Again, I'm not trying to bag on anyone and appreciate both video makers for putting it out there. Just looking to understand how the product really works and if this is blue smoke and why.
I recently saw modifications to the MES units and wonder if it's about limiting the wood input to 'thin' the white smoke.
