Hi, I saw this smoker and wanted to build one like it using 3/16" mild steel, I plan on it being 48" long, 24" deep and 20" high. Plans for the fire box size is 18" long, 24" deep and 18" high. Here is a picture of the side view of what I had planned

Fire box opening is 15" wide at its widest point and 3 1/4" at it's highest point. The RF plate is going to be at the night point of the fire box opening and the cooking grate 3 1/4" above the RF plate. This is just a general idea that I had, I wanted to get your input on my plans as I'm a total newbie to smokers. I'm looking for any and all advise that you can give me. Thank you ahead of time for your help!!!
