Cornmeal on stone burning

Hello,
I am a novice pizzamaker and got a great tip about using cornmeal on the stone for easier removal with the peel. However, the cornmeal is baked black and the smoke is overwhelming-sets off the smoke alarms and stinks up the house. I basically sprinkle the cornmeal but some always hits the bottom of the oven. Any suggestions?
