I have an Olahoma Joe Longhorn reverse flow smoker. I need some advice on using splits. Yesterday I used a chimney starter of briquettes then I used Oklahoma Joe hickory splits from then on out. My issue was I had quite a bit of white greyish smoke. I warmed up the splits & they took right away but when I closed the door the smoke kind of billowed. I had my vent on the stack wide open & the vent on the firebox about half way. That was the only way I could control the temp if I opened it more my pit would run close to 300 degrees. With the setup I stated earlier my temp would run from 235-255. The food was not bitter but just couldn't get the bluish transparent smoke like I do when I use charcoal & wood chunks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
