Default 275gal offset smoker techniques and suggestions

Hello fellas! I have been a member of the site for a time but this is my first post.

I just bought a 275 gallon offset smoker off of craigslist. I was just wondering what techniques and/or suggestions you have on using the firebox. I have used grills of this size but not with the firebox. I just wanted to know what is the best technique. My main question is should I use the firebox solely for heat or should I put wood/charcoal inside the tank also? Also, should I use a wood/charcoal mix or stick strictly with would?

I have included some pics and will upload some more tonight or tomorrow to give you a better idea of the design. I really can not wait to fire this thing up. I am going to clean and paint it this weekend and hopefully next weekend fire it up.

Any suggestions are greatly welcomed and appreciated.
