Could put my hand on it anyplace, except door, and it was not hot, even when temp in the oven was 900+.

I’m slowly getting there. I sourced some ceramic fibre oven insulation instead of sand.
One of the welders on the shop floor is welding it up for me during lunch times. I feel like I’m watch someone build a smoker and not me building one but the more I watch, I realise it may have taken me forever.
Here are some progress pics.

Nearly finished this build. Just clean, paint and season.
I have a question about the paint. I know it’ll be high temp black paint, but is there a difference between standard high temp paint and stove/bbq high temp paint?
I will not be painting the inside but I am worried about fumes coming in from the air inlets, as they may get hot, and moving up through the cook chamber.

I didn’t paint inside of my firebox and cook chamber. Most commercial units are painted inside and out. When I seasoned mine, I washed the inside of both chambers with Dawn to cut any oil on the metal. I then ran it wide open, 350*+ for about 2 hours to further burn off any crap then backed down the temp and started spraying the cook chamber and shelves with cooking spray, let it run for a bit, spray it down again and let it run, 3 times maybe, I can’t remember. I then did a biscuit test to see how even the heat was and ate the biscuits. I didn’t die and didn’t notice any off flavors. Heat rises, your vents look to be on the side and shouldn’t see any direct fire so you shouldn’t have any issues
