I have a question for those who bury the chunks in the coals. Do you have a problem with bad smoke, as in not thin blue? I don't have a kettle, yet, but my dad has been performer that I would like to show him how to use. :) I know when I start my egg I throw the chunks on top and it takes a little while to get the thin blue.
