Smoke going the wrong way

Lately it seems the smoke in my meat is less than usual. During the cook I see more smoke coming out of the top of the hopper than I do the smokestack. Is something blocked up? I have an older (2013ish) 680 model

Maybe a stack inspection is in order or you got small auger fires going.

Thanks. Will check it out tomorrow. In the middle of a chuck roast burnt ends cook and it’s weird - color and smoke ring are great but smoke flavor is barely there.

Went through it today and there was way too much ash in the burn box. I suspect that was the culprit.
