What do you think about this smoker?

I assume the lower piece is the wood box?  I don't like that being right under the cooking area and with the door right where your legs will be when you are standing in front of the unit loading, basting or unloading.  I'd be worried about hitting it with my legs and getting burned.  Or on a hot day, the heat escaping from the door could make it kind of uncomfortable to be standing there.

It looks like it has two smoke/heat tubes going into the cooking chamber.  I've seen that on other units and that can do a good job of helping you get even heat as opposed to a hot spot where the smoke enters the cooking chamber.  I would look to see if there is some sort of baffle in there to spread out the heat/smoke - so you don't just get two hot spots.

It doesn't look like there is any gasketing around the door? - might check on that.  Adding oven gaskets is pretty easy and helps reduce losses around the door edges.
