does anyone make an electric firebox? im struggling to find smoking accesseries. its all or nothing from what i can find online.

i am in the process of piecing together a whiskey barrel UDS and i need a heat source. im not apposed to a true firebox but electricity is just so easy and if it is off to the side i could easily change chips as needed. i do not want to use a hot plate b/c i have that in my terra cotta pot smoker and it is harsh when it comes to temp control. plus i dont think i could find one to heat a whiskey barrel very well...

i am not against using charcoal but its not my first choice. if it comes to this, what is the best way to get a charcoal firebox?

Have you looked in to a heating element out of a regular electric grill? I bought my dad a combo elec. smoker, grill, deep fryer several years ago and it's round and has a round element so might work in the bottom of your barrel. Maybe wrap your wood chips in foil. I'm pretty sure it's made by Brinkman.
