Default If you could build only 1 smoker ?

Hi, i'm trying to make up my mind on what pit to build, i found a metal junk yard and my heart just went ta racin, i would have sworn i felt a tear on my cheek...i was in heaven....bigggg steel pipes little steel pipes, flat iron, u name it they got it and its cheap, to me anyway....any kind of steel is 20 cents a lb no matter what...alumanumnum num is 60 cents...stainless is 75 cents....then there's what they call dirty stuff and something called 10% no clue, i just know i can't get this smile off my face.......
sooo it looks like i can build whatever i want pretty cheap....they have an alumanum num num box about 3x6 but no door to it 2" insulation in it....i was thinking of building a smoker out of it stand it up with a steel firebox under it....any ideas? i was lusting after a big tank that was 1/2" steel no top r bottom just a pipe....i really like a stand up smoker soooo if you could build 1 smoker what would it be? design wise.

i have 3 already a home made block smoker and a stand up tank smoker and a weber, but just for fun lets pretend i don't have those....no my wife didn't buy that either....loll..ty for all comments...Billy

One that holds 30 plus butts and not very deep so there is no shelf sliding.

If I could build only one I'd build a Macleod...






Then everyone would know it as the "Highlander"

As popular as the UDS/BDS upright drums are.....I think I would check out a section of 24" pipe and do a vertical smoker. You could add tight fitting doors, one to add charcoal and one to remove ash.
