Hey Guys. I'm thinking about a smoker build. I WILL have a smoker come May. 

But I need to decide now whether I'm building one from oil drums or upgrading a pre-fab home depot version. 

I need help in this way.

Any and all comments welcome.
Budget isn't the biggest consideration. I have live in Brooklyn so my backyard isn't huge, that's probably my biggest thought. 

Then there are other thoughts. I definitely want an offset smoker, vertical or horizontal I don't know.
