Hi All,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I am a new BGE owner, and struggling just a little bit with how to use wood chunks mixed in the lump over longer cooks. I have read all the advice about not cooking in the white smoke, and waiting for the blue smoke. What I am finding is that during the cook, when the fire moves towards the wood chunks, I start getting the white smoke. Is this OK? How can you only cook in the blue smoke with wood chunks mixed into the lump?
My first cook had about 8 chunks of wood, and it was WAY too much. I pretty much ruined the ribs. My next try had 3 chunks, but after about 1.5 hours, I wasn’t getting any more smoke, and had to move things around to get the a wood chunk near the hot coals. That ended up making a huge amount of the white smoke again.
Any advice? Thanks!
