I posted the brainstorming of this project a couple of months ago. Well it has all come together and the Coke-a-Cola smoker build is a wrap. Started with an old Coke cooler similar to the one pictured. Got it for free!!!
Ordered and attached a Smoke Daddy pellet smoker to the side of the unit and this thing works amazingly.I also built a cold smoke unit out of some tin cans, copper pipes and an aquarium pump. I built some shelves out of angle iron and expanded metal. So far we have only cooked a couple of chickens and some tri-tips. I will say that the pellet smoker produces a good amount of ash. Could be from the pellets I am using..don't know? The good news is that most of the ash stays low in the unit and isn't making it's way up onto the meat. Going to season the racks really well today with some lard. Let me know what you think and shoot me any question should you have any.
