As my grandson is to young to get a job this summer, he went in on a partnership with me, chipping in to buy a forcecut 50D and a hobart 125ez to build smokers, tables, chairs etc for pocket money. Here are few pics of smoker/smokers in process.

Great Smoker! If the chimney was on the other end of the fire box, wouldn't that draw the heat and smoke in to the chamber and make it smokier?
Just a thought.

Lee, the smoker has a baffle plate welded roughly 1/3 from the bottom of smoke chamber that buts up against the firebox side wall and extends full length of smoker, leaving a small gap on opposite end. This makes heat and smoke travel full length of smoke chamber, then being drawn back over top of baffle to fire box side. This helps equalize heat, and makes smoking easier.

I can't state how well it holds up. Over in the SMF forums I believe I read the rustoleum high temp paints seemed to hold up well, but I won't be able to give a responsible answer to rather thats so until next year, sorry.
