While I applaud your outside the box approach, charcoal-fueled UDS's are already set and forget! And I'm with bluedawg on the power going out issue- Better have a generator handy so you don't ruin a cook!

Interested to see what your smoke producing setup will be. Good luck.
I doubt it will be that bad - I used to have one of the ECB electric smokers, which actually is just a variation on this exact same thing - no controls, just a coil that plugs in for on, unplug for off.

It wasn't too bad on the electricity - barely noticed anything on the monthly bill even using it a couple times per week.
