    As long as it's not galvanized metal it would be fine to use. Now as far a configuration, fuel and such that's going to have to be an experiment. It probably would do great as an electric, or even a propane smoker. It would be super easy to turn it into a cold smoker.I like it and say go for it! Post a ton of photos so we can see what you come up with.

    Why not make a vertical offset out of it. Should be pretty easy to do.
  4. . I had thought about that I need to go check it out to see how thin or thick the metal is!!

    Should work, nice project.

    A next door neighbor got a hold of one of those large aluminum boxes you see at some intersections for the (I think) traffic signal control and / or lighting in the intersection and made a bang up smoker out of it. He was able to do whole pigs :)
