It does not matter what kind of container you use whether it is a WSM or a cardboard box. All it does is 'contain' the smoke. I have never used a store bought smoke generator but they sound good. IMHO the most important thing is temperature. Remember you are (COLD smoking). That means if the outside temp is 60 degrees or less your OK. But, the inside temp should be about the same. That's why some folks use ice. The easiest way to keep the smoke temp down is to not create much heat in the first place. That's where the smoke generators come in. For me the soldering pencil is the easiest way to keep the temp down and the cost is nominal. Trial and error. KISS
