I recently built a Mini WSM and I have had a couple smokes that were relatively quick. My experiences so far is when I add the wood to the charcoal; I'll have about an hour of white smoke. It eventually becomes TBS, and it stays that way for about another hour. After that the TBS is very very faint. When using the minion or snake method, and the burning coals start to make their way outward and make contact with the wood that hasnt had direct contact with buring coals. When the wood starts to ignite will the white smoke start again?
