Yes a regular smoker would work as well. Just ensure oxygen gets to the pellets and the smoke has a way to vent.
I would try the ice cube trick as stated in the Instructable and if you do here's an added benefit.... In the past I used a couple glass bowls full if ice in the grill to keep the temp down as well as placed it in the shade. While the ice is melting it is also absorbing the smoke. When you are done take the water and pour it into ice cube trays and refreeze. The smokey ice cubes give your mixed drinks, cocktails, whiskey or scotch a new twist. Try it! You won't be disappointed. Oh and be sure to use a different refrigerator as the smoke smell may be overwhelming :)
