Okay so I am having trouble with my big chief smoker, I am messing around with it making sure I have good air flow but the smoke just always smells plain bad. After reading and watching some videos they say that at first there is thick white smoke and then proceeds to blue. So am I just not waiting long enough? I let them smoke for about 45 minutes and the thick smoke goes away and is left with no smoke.
Is this period of no smoke really blue smoke? I mean I cannot see it or smell it, or is the wood just done?
I really think my big chief is too hot.....maybe I have one that is malfunctioning?
Im running out of ideas. I used my 2 grills as smokers before and the entire backyard would smell like sweet blue it was wonderful. So this is pretty frustrating that Im having problems with my first smoker
