Set up my XLBGE with a large batch of BGE lump and started with an electric starter like I always do. The fire has been burning for over an hour and I am still getting lots of white smoke. I had the temp at 250 first, and then thought raising the temp to 350 would burn off the white smoke, but that has not happened. What can I do to get rid of the white smoke? I have not put my butts in yet but time is becoming an issue. II have 32 lbs of butt to cook (4 8lbs pieces in 2 v-racks. BTW, I did a search and read many of the posts regarding white smoke, but everyone seems to take the position that the smoke will just burn off. Normally, it does for me too after about 10-15 minutes of burning.
My set up is large lump first in, then 6 large pieces of apple wood, then medium lump, and finish with smaller pieces of lump. Put platesetter with feet up, drip pan without liquid on top of wadded up HD Alum foil to separate from platesetter, and grate on top.
Any help is deeply appreciated.
