I know that when you smell "raw" spices, you say "borei minei besamim". Can you make this bracha on the smokey smell when these spices are being burned? Some examples:
If you burn an incense stick where the stick is made from a combo of cinnamon, lavender and other spices.
If you use mesquite wood chips in your barbecue, can you make the bracha when the wood is burning?
Similarly, if you put spices on the meat and the spicy smoke comes through the meat, should you make the bracha?
