Somebody here has a great side-by-side shot of 2 stickburners, one with thin blue smoke and the other with thick white smoke. Too much of the white billowy smoke can lead to an off-taste, kinda bitter and whangy...or so I've heard...a little bit isn't going to ruin anything and it does happen, but I definitely spend a lot of time looking at the smoke that comes out of whatever cooker I'm using to make sure it's relatively clean.

As for temp - you can burn a hot fire to keep the smoke clean, you control the cooking temp by the size of that fire.

***on edit - ^^^that's the pic I was thinking of - thanks!
