We have the smell of smoke in my house, from a nice fireplace. Worked once where a home burned, hard to get that smell out! I agree with John, gallons of Bin.

I always used BIN as well.

Recently up here in Canada I saw a product that General Paint carries called Smoke Seal, way less stinky

I remember doing an insurance job on a 150 year old 3-story building, the ceiling beams got burnt pretty good but there was enough left to keep the safety inspector happy. After about 36 gallons of b-i-n it smelt ok.

Edit: I forgot to mention that we had to media blast the char off the beams first.

Kilz oil base will never work as well as the shellac based BIN We have done 100s of fire jobs and the only product i trust is BIN. Zinser makes the best primers in the world IMO. If it is just cigarette smoke you are trying to rid of any oil based product should work.

One Word:
BIN

Alternatives:
BIN

If above mentioned products are not available:
BIN

*Insul-X used to have a "BIN Alternative"
I can't get it here anymore
If you can in your area, it worked pretty darn good, and I can recommend it
Unfortunately, I forget it's name
But any store carrying Insul-X (or Ben Moore) will know what you mean

\Why do we always seem to have concurrent threads on the same subject?

And the subject of the best sealer for a certain application always comes up a few times a year. IMO, we need to knock noggins and create a list of which product will seal what stain the best.

For the sake of this thread, as Slick says, the best product for smoke is: BIN. And if that is not available, then buy some BIN. However, if you are in a real desperate situation where you can't find any appropriate smoke blocker, then you can use the alternative ..... BIN.
