    Long time griller, first time smoker......

    I live in sunny southern California, and my wife got me a Masterbuilt charcoal smoker for our 25th.

    I posted in the charcoal forums, but after two attempts, and then reading here (and elsewhere) about TBS, I realized I'm way over smoking with white billowing smoke (WBS).  

    How do I best acheive TBS with Traeger pellets?  How much charcoal, how many pellets, do I put the pellets in the tray above the charcoal or directly on the charcoal or both?

    Are you using the Minion method? If not Id give that a whirl and put some wood chunks in with the unburnt coals.
