Wife Doesnt Like Smoke Taste of Chicken - Options?

I'm new to the egg. I haven't cooked much on charcoal, but I'm starting to like this grill more than my gas grill.

I cooked some boneless /skinless chicken breasts on the egg indirectly using the platesetter. They had a heavy smoked taste after 35-40 mins and were perfectly cooked. I was using BGE charcoal.

My wife did not like the "smokey" taste. I know that I can cook direct with the dome open (already done that to redeem myself). What are my other options?

Is there a way to make the flavor less smokey? Should I be proactive and try to change the taste of the smoke with some wood chunks?

Thanks for the suggestions.
