A typical calculation example from experience shows a frequent thinking error: Only scarcely 0.1 % of the costs of the end product are caused by the smoking material.
Even small errors in this area can, however, lead to great loss at the end product or have a great effect on the costs of the overall manufacturing process.

Contaminated or moldy smoking material must never be used for smoking.
Contamination with mold leads to a sweet, moldy, carbolic taste. At the same time, the smoke will introduce fungus spores and (aerobic spore forming) germs into the smoke chamber.
Wood waste like saw dust or shavings may contain toxins, e.g. from glue, preservatives or pesticides. The consequences of any introduction of toxins or undesired effects on smell or taste will make consumption of the smoked products impossible.
If the smoking chips are too fine and moist, a sharp, bluish smoke with an increased tar content results. This is caused by a too slow smoking process at a too low temperature. The smoked goods may be covered with a layer of soot.
State of the art smoke systems suffer from the resulting contamination. High cleaning and downtime costs, that will by far exceed those of the smoking chips, as well as air extraction and increased end product complaints are the expensive consequences of this!
