Default Need Help from the Brethren...Stumps Clone or Backwoods Spicewine Clone Build?? W/ PRON

Okay so I'm picking up this commercial freezer/refrigerator this weekend. I found it on ebay and offered the guy $150 and he accepted....Score! My wife just loves all my new toys and bargain hunting . Pics below.

Originally I was going to build a Stumps clone from scratch..but since I can't weld I thought I would get a jump start and use a commercial freezer. The interior smoking cooking chamber will be
22" wide x 27" deep x 51" high. I'm now debating on whether or not I should go with a Stumps clone or a backwoods/spicewine clone. My thoughts on the backwoods/spicewine build is that I could probably get the cooker up and running faster since I will really just need to make a charcoal basket, and a water/drip pan. With the stumps clone I would need to make the charcoal chute and attach it to the main cook chamber. I like the gravity fed charcoal chute and the effeciency of the stumps.

So my question to the brethren is which way would you go? What are the pros and cons of either smoker? All help will be much appreciated.
