The lube is some sort of wax. It'll melt along with the lead, then smoke, then self ignite with a WOOF! As said above, it will work in your favor to help flux the melted lead,(flux is a term used to describe a purification process used to clean the lead and return some oxides to a metallic state). Best thing to do is wait for it to start to smoke, then ignite the smoke, it'll make for a lot less smoke. Stir the lead with something to mix the lube/flux with the lead. When it's done burning and smoking, skim the dross, (the crap that's floating on the shiny surface).
