I see this a lot - in terms of when to add smoke wood, when to add food etc. Curious....does "clear smoke" happen when all of the load has whitened off or when the temp has hit a certain point. I ask because I see lots of people suggesting dispersing the smoke wood throughout the lump and the fire will eventually find it all. I'd think that the "clear smoke" can't be when all the lump has whitened off (lit).
I might not be explaining myself very well here.....does anyone get what I mean?
As an addendum to the above, if I'm using chips, not chunks do I do the same? Bury pockets of smoke wood all throughout the lump load? Why wouldn't I do that AND add a couple handfuls of wet and dry when I have the temp stabilized and add the meat? When is it too much?
