Default Making a smoker from an electric oven

If this sounds dumb I can live with it. I have an old electric stove/ oven that instead of hauling it away I didn't see why it wouldn't make a decent smoker. It can stand the heat and it seems to me the pull out drawer on the bottom for pans, etc. could become a firebox. I know there would need to be vents below and on top which seems to me to be workable. Have any of y'all ever done or seen this done? I have never made a smoker and plan to make a UDS this summer but hate to throw away something usable. Any comments or advice?

Not sure, really. I would make sure you strip all wiring and anything else that could be a mess after it melts. WTH. Give it a try, nothing to lose.

It should work. As mentioned above, remove all wiring and circuitry. Other than that, a few holes in the bottom may be all that is needed.

I found this link on how to make an electric smoker from an oven. Might have some ideas you can use.
