I don't have any experience with BBQ equipment but I did design & build a 1 barrel RIMS. My experience with building home-brewing equipment, is you end up spending nearly what a commercial builder would charge and you often have to live with design flaws/ lack of features. I spent a lot of time and money redoing and correcting mistakes on my equipment. I you want to build your own cooker I say go for it, I just don't know how much money you'll save. I would guess Big Drum Smokers have evolved and continuously improved. He's made the mistakes so you won't have to.
