Default Spicewine Smoke ring

I was wondering if you guys with SW Smokers are getting a smoke ring like you did with your other smokers. I'm not complaining because i placed 4th with my brisket this year and 5th last year with the Dually. But i didn't have any smoke ring.

I have the same thing not going to say a problem because the product is very good but it sure would be nice to get that smoke ring every once in a while. I have tried everything I can think of?

Do you run the water pan dry? What fuel do you use (including wood)?

Is the fire so clean you get no smoke hence no smoke ring? I dunno.

I run dry and always get a good smoke ring on my pork but not so much on my brisket.

So here's the question...is moisture needed for a smoke ring?

OK I am real happy with the smokering I get now but I did start placing more wood during cooks, thru out the entire cook. We all know that the judges more than likely look for it even though they are not supposed to. So I eased up on the water, add more slim, split pieces into my smoker and marvel at how bright that ring is. And for B Mistas question, I think that too much moister dulls the ring. My opinion. No scientific proof from this bone head.

I was told smoke rings are not to be considered in a comp because they can be made artificially with meat tenderizer.
thats what I heard

Same as i did w/the 'dera. Water in the pan,Charcoal in the basket,Pecan preheated next to the basket then move into the basket and preheat another one.
I wonder if the smoke is passing thru to fast,i have the vent closed 1/2 way and the temp holds at 225 all night. I do seem to have a lot of steam when i open the door. I never spray anymore because of the moisture inside.

I think the fruit woods are the key to a good ring especially cherry.
