PG 1000 Smoke Question

At a controller temp of 225 how much white smoke should be produced by the PG 1000.  It was filling my backyard and my neighbors with smoke. I had to move it away from the house. I played with the LHT/HHT settings to see if I could get it cleaner but nothing seemed to change the amount or color of the smoke. The fire box itself did not contain a fire or visible flames at 225 and it seemed to be just smoldering. Is this Normal? At low cooking temps, is this unit supposed to have a fire burning or do the Pellets Smolder?

Cooking Analytics for the Day:

90 Degree Day  No Humidity in Direct Sun - LHT-10 with HHT-30. I also tried LHT-15 with HHT-35 for a couple of hours and no real difference except LHT-15 had less temp swing variance. I was using "Q" Pellets Brand Apple Wood.

Sorry for being a Rookie with the unit. Any information or insight would be helpful.
