Re: Wax smell?
When waxing traps, you should never let the wax get so hot that it starts to smoke. That's what causes the smokey smell plus it can be a fire hazard.
My traps are boiled in a metal tub over an open fire but the traps are waxed on a gas stove so I can control the heat. A smaller pot makes for a much longer process but a much safer one as well.
The horizon is your starting point.
