Default Feedback on Smoker Design

Seen this smoker for sale and thought the design was interesting. It was built in a technical college welding shop. Made from 30" diameter propane tanks. Appears trailer was also built in the same shop. Not sure where axle cam from but it has 15" wheels. Smoker is one year old. Owner has successfully used both stick and charcoal in firebox.

Fire is built in bottom of the vertical tank and it has an ash cleanout. Seller says there is an air outlet adjustment on top of the vertical tank. Currently only one rack in vertical tank but it has hangers at top for hanging meat. Rack supports could easily be added.

Only one grate level in horizontal tank. Seems the opening would need to be enlarged down lower to utilize two grate levels. Adjustable air exit on top of exhaust stack. Support between front of horizontal tank and trailer looks weak but owner says it made from 3" C-channel and 1 1/2" angle iron. Cooking surface in horizontal surface appears high but enlarging the opening might help this.

What are your thoughts about the pros and cons of this smoker? I thank you for your feedback!
