What makes the white smoke or how do you deal with it? Is it too much wood, the charcoal not burned long enough???
Lack of air for combustion. Open the air intake. The beauty of the offsets is that on a lot of them you can open the firebox lid and let the white stuff out before it gets to the smoke box. If you preheat your wood on top of the firebox it will ignite almost instantly when it hits the coals, lessening the white stuff.
