I don't think that ice smokes, not even subliminally!

Very cute jimbo. O_o
Yeah I was thinking dry ice as well. Technically it is condensation.

The ice would have no heat in it only if it were at absolute zero in temperature.

The pain from touching something really cold can be referred to as a "burn". And I think by "smoke" the author means "steam", which ice will do in warm air. Maybe it's not perfect, but I got it right.
