I've had this problem the last few times I've used my smoker. I'm having a heck of a time getting thin blue smoke, I just get billowing white smoke and after a while of this if I open the door for any reason the added oxygen ends up lighting my smoke chunks on fire causing me to start over with new chunks. Today I did notice that the bottom of my chip pan is rusted through a little, not a lot though. So the second batch of chunks I put in I put a couple layers of HD foil down. Is my chip pan to blame?
How to stop billowing white smoke?

It happens to me every once in a while when my chunks are directly on my fire and I use bigger chunks. As a matter of fact it happened to me today. I just keep an eye on it and turn down my heat a little. I am using charcoal though.
I must have had too much alum foil down cause it sat for almost an hour without any smoke. Took out the foil and not 20 minutes later my chunks were on fire. I can't get my heat any lower right now. I'm at a loss.
