    !/8" is kinda thin for a fire box in my opinion.
    You have to figure it's the part of the pit that gets the highest and most heat.

    I think you'd be better with at least 1/4"

    Well I dont know what kind of smoker you are building. Offset, vertical, ect. In general 1/8 for a fire box on a offset would be prettttty light.
