What I want to do is make this a easy a smoker as I can, but still have the option of doing a long wood burn.
I want to use a baffle sheet with lip like cake pan that drains to a spigot at the other end of the smoker from the fire box.
This would make clean up easier.
Under the drip pan I want to install a water pan that can be filled or re-filled during a smoke without opening the lid.
My thinking is that I will not have to clean this pan out that often and I can use adding water as a temperature control device.
I want to install a log burner in the firebox and if I want to burn lump or wood just a simple inverted sheet metal vee would protect it from the ashes.
If you see any problems or dumb thinking let me know. Not going to be starting soon I want to lay it out with some cardboard first.
