Welcome. Intereting build (s)? Got a story to go with it?

No real story behind it just been itching to build my own smoker for a long time and since my old pit rotted out and I couldn't hold temp anymore it was time

Nice classic design and a perfect size for a patio smoker. I like it.

Did you use the calculators to size it? Your dimensions look just a bit off. Many here have found out the hard way that the gap, air intake, firebox, and chimney need to be properly sized in order for it to operate properly.

I did not originally but after you mentioned it I ran my numbers through the calc and they ironically were really close more good luck then careful planning I guess
