I use a smoker with burlap in it.  I don't use fume boards.  Then I brush the bees off the frames down into the lower super if there are a lot of them but usually when they are smoked they go down.  Two puffs in the lower entrance then the rest on top when I take the cover off.  Hope that helps.

I use bee quick. It is the only good smelling one. Also, non-toxic, and dissipates quickly.

Triangular escape boards work well if used properly.
