Just converted my rig to electric...and I have a smoke issue. If I set the chip pan (cast iron) right on the elements, I get heavy white smoke. If I set it off the elements (about 1"), I don't get any smoke. Seems to be no happy meduim. By the way, I use dry chips. The other issue is that I pre-heat the smoker, where the elements burn red hot early on...then to maintain, they cycle on and off and don't ever really glow again. When the elements are red hot and the chip box is on them, I get nasty smoke. Then the chips continue to smoke pretty heavy and white and eventually go out. No TBS. If I don't put the box in until the elements are done glowing red hot, I don't get much, if any smoke...and only when the elements are turned on for a longer time (not very often, since I use a proportional controller). I'm wondering if any of you have any recommendations for a distance from the elements that works for you and how to balance the early excessive smoke with the chips going out later in the process. Also, is using a cast iron box with electric not a good thing, should I be using a SS bowl? Here are pictures of my setup. Thanks!
