If the cupola is used to smelt metal, that is reduce the metal from the raw ore, sure its gonna produce a lot of smoke and things that the neighbors will complain about.

Sulfides and all sorts of other stuff are present in raw ore.

I was assuming that only clean [not greasy or dirty] refined metals were to be *melted* and a good grade of coke was to be used as fuel.

If i am mistaken about this please enlighten me. I would like to know what would make a cupola smoke any more than a gas furnace would smoke.
