Update from Michael S, August 2022: I'm currently enjoying a great place to smoke at FRA, they have a really nice terrace where smoking is allowed at the B Gates area. it might get a bit hot in the afternoon.  Just follow the signs for the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, it's just a few meters away. Showers and relax area are pretty close too. Bring your coffee / beer / .... as the only restaurant at the same level is currently out of operations and you have to go down again to buy anything.
