On my offset I have to keep a nice fire going, a small flame coming off of the logs. If I don't my fire smothers then I loose the flame and then get white ashy smoke out of my stack. If could be logs not preheated as Kevin said above. You know the difference by how long white smoke continues. A short brief period when you first add a log, then it's wood burning off moisture. A long period then check your logs and see if you have a small flame coming off of them. If not adjust your intake so your logs don't lack oxygen and flame up again. The trick with my small offset is just enough wood to keep the flame and keep my temps under control. Usually means I spend lots of time with my cooker to keep nice blue smoke
