A heat diffuser is a must with most smokers but so is a heat sink. I am old school so I use a water pan but some use sand.

BTW: I agree that you got a good deal on a great old school vertical smoker. Spend the time and get all the rust off. Rust is your enemy. Do the mods and fire that bad boy up. You're gonna love it!!
