Does anyone have any pron of what the "Good" blue smoke looks like vs. the "bad" white smoke?

Bad on left, good on right.

What would make the same piece of wood either burn with Blue Smoke or burn with white smoke?

The fire should be hot, and if possible the wood should be as warm as possible before placing on the
hot fire. Do NOT smother the fire/coals. Also, wet or moist wood will do this. This is one of the reasons
to NEVER soak wood like many instructions will tell you.

Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
