Cooking on a cast iron grill... without smoking me out?

Every time I attempt to use my stovetop cast iron grill, I can't seem to thoroughly cook meats without producing an intolerable amount of smoke. And i'm not talking about the usual smoke inherent in any stovetop cooking, but huge billowing clouds of smoke setting off smoke alarms and hazing up the apartment.

What am I doing wrong? Is this much smoke normal? I've followed instructions on properly 'seasoning' the pan prior to cooking on it, and have carefully maintained it. But still... the smoke! It's more than my range exhaust fan can handle, and I've had to discontinue using the pan for the moment.
For reference, I'm using this exact Lodge grill/griddle pan.
