    Bigtuna, since no one will stick their opinion in here, I'll say that only if it is the dead of Winter and you live in a cool climate.  There are a number of smokers on the market that only provide a 700W element and that is to provide heat for a hot smoke.

    If you can build a separate box and pipe it he smoke in it should work. But having it directly in the smoker probably won't. As a comparison The little and big chief smokers maintain right around 170-180.
