You may have already found this, but in addition to the 101 document, on the first page of this thread, I posted a picture of my firebox. All I used was a circular saw and a 7 inch cut off wheel from Home Depot.

Put bricks in both the firebox and the smoke box. Not sure how much difference they make in the smoke box, but they look good. I also reused the cinder tray from the fire box in the bottom of the smoke box to make clean up easy. Just rap the tray in foil.
