I’m pretty new to this and have read a lot of good reviews from here.
I have an old braunfels smoker rusted with some nickel size holes here and there. My main concerns are how to repair the holes ( what do I use? ) and how much rust should be present if any.
Will post pictures shortly.

Any and al ideas to repair if possible... really attached to this and want to fix it

looks like that's some tired metal. my only idea would be to maybe rivet some thin metal around the inside. for the rust I would grind as much off as possible but ya might create some more holes if the rust is pretty thick. maybe someone with more knowledge will jump in.

Sanding and going at it with wire brushes now. I thought maybe just another layer of the same gauge on the inside to cover it all with one piece, not sure though..
