Alton didn't really invent this so much as lay out the process
in detail. It's an old method of cooking to say the least.
I've done it, it will work. The value of buying a decent smoker
off the shelf is that you will have to spend much less time
tending the fire so it won't have that advantage.
It's a great exercise in BBQ to build your own smoker/cooker
however and I strongly recommend it. I've built/made so many
I've lost count.
