Hello everyone I've been reading this blog for a couple of weeks and finally decided to join. You all sound like a great group of people and I am hoping to get some good advice. I have already signed up for the 5-day ecourse on smoking. I have a Weber Kettle 22.5" and been smoking with it for about 6 months. I get a lot of white smoke which thoughout this blog they say white smoke is bitter. What am I doing wrong? I soak my chips for about 1/2 hour and throw them directly on the coals which somtimes are hardwood charcoal and other times I use Kingsford. I always use a chimeny to light my coals. My food taste good but I feel it could be alot better. Also if anyone out there smokes with a Weber have you ever used the Smokenator 1000 with Hover Kit? It looks like it would do a great job, but I would like to hear some reviews before buying it. When smoking, should chips or chunks be used? If you use chunks do you soak them first?
