Go for it. I once made a cold smoker out of a toilet tank, so yours can not be that crazy. I dunno where the thread is though. (think it's called off the wall smoker) I"ll look for it because this weekend I'm pulling that thing out of the garage and smoking some cheese and almonds. I gotta add a shelf to it first though.
