Stainless smoker build

Use this calculator and you will have a smoker that works great. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/a/reverse-flow-smoker-how-to-calculate-build-tutorial
There are still no pics here of your build so makes it a lot harder for anyone to comment on.
Also I bought some insulation from Home Depot, the pink fiberglass kind but already took it back and thinking about getting something more high heat, and I'm really not even sure how high the stuff at homedepot goes to but didn't want to take a chance. I've seen stuff called roxwool or something like that but, insulation is my next step so I'm also all ears on what insulation works good for a good price.
Spend a little time making a more detailed drawing or I can put you in touch with a CAD expert in Croatia who charges $12 hr and and whip you up a detailed drawing.
To me depending on the length of intake tube and if it has bends it sounds awfully small to me.
Your smoker may have a few problems with the connecting tubes being too small/long and the exhaust being to long. Both these areas will be where the smoke cools and stalls.
Also where the smoke enters and exits will be potential hotspots. Try to get the entrance for the exhaust low.. my 2 cents
