Something along the lines of a New Braunfels Bandera, but with a bit more room in the CC, what would it be? I'm thinking 20X24X40 or perhaps 24X24 X40 with 6 slideout expanded metal shelves. Proportional FB with a heavy, flat lid so the heat doesn't pool above the FB/CC opening and two inlet dampers, one at the bottom for draft and one near the top to direct the heat to the CC
I recently made friends with a guy who has a fabricating shop and exceptional welding skills. He has built several smokers, but I want a design that doesn't have to be modded or monkeyed with after the build other than a minor tweak or two.
Cost is a consideration as I'm not independently wealthy, but it needs to be thick enough to hold heat better than the bandera
