Default Thin blue smoke vs thick and not so blue

Im havin an issue today that I havent really had before. Started the UDS up as normal using the minion method with about 10 pcs of lump in the chimney and a full basket of unlit plus a few apple chunks mixed in as well as a big chunk of white oak in the drum. It all started out fine until I woke up at 6:30 this morning to my temp reading 190. Went out and shook the can to get the burnt ash off of the top and it seemed to work. Had beautiful thin blue smoke until that point. Since then, Ive been getting some thicker whitish blueish smoke...sometimes just white smoke.

Any ideas WHY? I want that thin blue.
