Controllable air flow is the key to any smoker, even a homemade one. If you can't regulate the intake of air then you will never be able to control the temps.

I suppose I should have also stated that it's electric. Does that matter?

What is your smoke source? Are you using chips, chunks, or pellets?

Chips

Yes you will need airflow to keep the chips burning. You won't need a ton of air but you will need some.

×2 with maddox. Not much air needed. Maybe drill a few holes on aide about 1-2" ip from bottom and a few at top for smoke and you are good to go to run it all day with no issues.
