the good, the bad, & the ugly - the color of smoke

edited 1:14AM in EggHead Forum
here's the smoke from a 250 degree fire i made tonight to smoke 20 pounds of pork butt.

this is mostly fresh lump charcoal, some used lump charcoal, some hickory chunks, split into finger size pieces and about 4 cups of cherry and apple chips... the only difference in the photos is time. about 15 minutes. put the meat on when it's GOOD

    Had a longer than usual bout with the "ugly" variety today as I tried to bring her up to temp. I think it was because I (inadvertently) dumped in too much small stuff and dust while loading lump. Got out my trusty bent coat hanger and cleared things out as much as I could from below, she belched once (WOOSH from both ends) and the smoke cleared (to "good" - do not pass bad, do not collect $200) and the dome temp rose 30°. Put on the ribs.
