I've been happy with my WSM's for a few years now and have not had a problem with an oversmoked taste. So in my opinion, a thin white smoke is not going to cause you trouble. The smoke doesn't usually turn to pure thin blue smoke until after the wood has been burned down to a coal basically. So if you want to get only thin blue smoke using a Minion method (in my opinion), burn only quality 100% hardwood lump charcoal. This is hardwood chunks that ahve already been preburned down to coals for you. They will impart a hardwood flavor, just not as much as when you use wood because a lot of that flavor is lost while charcoal is being extinguished, but it's still there.
