Default Commercial use Smokers

Hi I new to the forum. I've been cureing and smoking bacon for about 6 yrs and thinking about turning it into a business.
I hope I'm not braking rules here or if I'm in the right forum?
I live near Cleveland , Ohio of those "Northern States "
I'd like a smoker that is certified for commercial use, does anyone know of manufacturer?
I'm told that health inspectors can approve individual units.

I live in Ohio. Health Dpt in Greene County passed FEC 100 and Cookshack. Told me in the future they would possibly pass non NSF Smoker if I gave them cut sheets on smoker and showed it could be cleaned. Every county is different, maybe they might pass something non NSF if you approach them right
