I think this may be your problem. You don't actually want to see a lot of smoke -- especially white or yellowish smoke. What you want is "sweet blue smoke" which is not all that perceptible.
I think your chunks are too big and/or your fire is too small if they last an hour. Try smaller chunks and a hotter fire. Also, don't soak the chunks in water if you are doing that.
