My fireplace is smoky. Why is that?

It can be a multitude of things, and it may take one of our experienced sweeps to figure it out. But here are a few obvious things you can try. 1) Make sure the damper is all the way open. I know that sounds obvious, but open the damper all the way and look with a flashlight to prove it is open all the way. 2) Make sure you are burning with the fire at the far rear of the fire-box. Most fireplaces will not work with the logs in the center of the hearth. That alone will make a difference.
