Default New Deer Hunter...please help

My brother-in-law and I have are going hunting this fall, it will be his first deer hunt and my first one since I was a kid. We have put together a nice stand where I know there is deer traffic. Our land is almost all wooded, so it is a pretty tight area, but we've built a huge (probably overkill) wood stand betwen 3 trees that holds both of us. He has an idea of putting up an old wood burning stove up there, but I am leary of the smoke. We are about 25 feet off the ground and if we put the stove up, would put up a smoke stack for another 8-10 feet. I wonder if the smell would scare off the deer. We had also thought of just using some charcoal to burn, as I think it would be less hassle and scent. Is this at all a good idea? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I am a long time member, but usually just read the post. Thanks in advance for the help!
