Default blue smoke..question #2

Hey guys,

I hate to sound like such a retard but I guess if I can't ask this here, then I can't ask it anywhere....since we're all into smoking meats.

If it is HOT coals that produce the thinner, blue smoke....when using the minion method, some of your coals (the bottom ones) will not be as hot as the the ones that have already been burning, which is of course, on top.

I'm smoking two butts right now in the cold and light NC snow and I am putting the hot coals on top of the un-lit coals and each time as the new coals get lit, they will not be as hot as the previously lit ones and therefore, it produces that cloudy smoke.

Is this accepted for the minion method or am I doing something wrong here?
