You are not cold smoking at 175 degrees you are Hot smoking. Cold smoking is under 100 degrees.

The water heater blanket should work fine, but I can't say for sure without seeing the product. If it has the vinyl face on the outside it could be a problem, as it would melt if it got to hot. I think the metallic covered ones would be better.

good idea forget the fridge and work on the drum.
there is high temp blankets that will work but the water heater one i dont think will take that much heat.
check it out befor ya buy one on the temp ratings.

Are you back to the hot smoke or the cold smoe?? If you are going for the cold smoke then use the UDS and your hot plate method and you should be fine. Maybe use your insulating blanket on the outside of the drum. Then if your going to the hot smoke just use your charcaol as always just not that much right??

You could remove all plastic in the fridge and replace with 22ga sheet metal...
