The Smokette doesn't get hot enough for the wood to burn and produce enough nitrogen dioxide to create a smoke ring. But, put a charcoal briquette or two in the wood box and you'll get one. The charcoal is already partially burned and will produce the nitrates needed.
It's been a long time since I've used my Smokette and I don't remember the hottest part. Buy a can of cheap biscuits and put some on each shelf and let them cook. The ones in the hotter part brown faster.
