I am nowhere a smoker tech but I would imagine it is mainly made of aluminum and plastic. Not sure if it would make a good smoker or not.

It would make a better beer cooler.
I would guess there is alot of plastic inside that would not hold up.
IF you dont need a cooler, think about selling/trading for a smoker.

I agree with all above. Sell it and buy a smoker or use it as a beer fridge and build a UDS..

Just wondering... Your screen name, socalwelder sounds like it should stand for Southern California Welder, but your location say Conroe, TX. That's gotta be like culture shock, huh?

The glass would get covered with smoke after the first cook, so you would not be able to see inside.

If it works, send it to me and i will send you a UDS.

Here's my plan for the one I have.

Take out all the plastic and replace with stainless steel. Use propane burner I have and make it into a giant cold smoker. The insulation on those is good. It's going to basically become a Smokerator with a glass door.
