Hello all. Just joined this forum today. Been lurking for awhile. Just got a smoker, it is only 1/8" thick. Concerned with heat los/control. Trying to think of how to make it better. Considering external fire blanket wrap, fire bricks inside, on walls, possibly top of firebox if I can get it to stick. Firebox lid does not.open. If fire brick is suggested, should I put it on the bottom as well?

Got it for next to nothing so I can't complain. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On a side note, it has never been cooked in. I want to season/cure it tonight. Hopefully will have enough information. To decide what I am going to do when finished. Really want to cook on it before I go back to work Sunday night.

Thanks in advance to everyone.

From the looks of your Build Post, I think you've got the problem well in hand. :tup:
