    Hello all! I have been lurking and taking advice from here for a few years now but a night of not being able to sleep has me here for a PROPER introduction! My father in law gave me a OLDDDDDDD brinkman electric smoker that was his father in laws. It is far from perfect but it does everything i can ask it to do! This is what I want to try and build for a cold smoker. I want to build a wooden box, maybe 7-8' high and square enough for a oven rack, with a runner in the middle of the box to hold the rack. I would then build a separate smoke box containing a hot plate to get the wood smoking and run Dryer hose from the smoke box to the box with rack. Im thinking maybe 2 foot of hose should cool the smoke between the 2? what do you think?
