Smoker thoughts

Hi everybody. I have been smoking meat with an electric smoker, a brinkman charcoal smoker and think it's time to get serious about it and I hope I posted this in the correct spot.

I have a 400gal water tank off an old cement mixer and plan on making a smoker out of it. I will be mounting it to a single axle boat trailer and have read many articles on how others make their smokers.

The plan is to build a firebox to put behind the barrel NOT at the end of it. I'm thinking that creating a damper that runs the length of the firebox would distribute the heat and smoke more evenly by having it in back.

I would appreciate other opinions on this idea.
