Enough smoke or not?

Why is it after about 30- 45min my smoke seems like its all gone? I know your supposed to wait until that gray smoke is gone and wait for some nice blue smoke but I can't see anything coming from the top .. It smells good but just was wondering , I usually put 2 to 3 small to med size chunks ,, When I see those BBQ Pittmasters on TV all there riggs seem to have lots of smoke coming out.. Was just curious..


    I use wood chips and I sprinkle them out in a spiral pattern so I get more smoke throughout the cook as the coals burn toward the outside. 

    Does your food get a good smoke ring?

    If you can smell smoke, so can your food - all that billowing smoke is just for show.

    Yep,, I get a noticeable smoke ring on my ribs most of the time.. Do you soak your chips or chunks? I don't soak mine ...

    Does it taste smokey enough for your preference? That's what matters, right?

    No soak.
