I have most of my issues with the mini under control, but getting to TBS has been a bit of a headache. Right now I'm about an hour past lighting, and the white smoke is still chugging along. I started with a pretty full basket of KBB with 3 hickory chunks buried well. I lit one edge with a torch for 1-1.5 mins, assembled the mini, top and bottom vents open. Aiming for 225, I closed down the bottom vent around 200 or so. Sitting nicely at 225 now, but smoke is thick. I even scrubbed my steamer insert today, as old grease on there makes its own smoke which complicates the matter. Any input? Thanks!
