I've been using 6 chunks...3 buried halfway into the charcoal, and 3 right on top. Should I just put the 3 on top in the chimney and dump them with the rest? It took a long time to burn off the white smoke. I dumped the chimney in right before 6 am and it was almost 7:30 before I was able to put my brisket on.
Also, whenever I open up more intake to raise the temps, I get a lot of white smoke. Is that normal?
