It's a long way from done, Dave. When Kim's done with the construction, our other son-in-law, who is an accomplished body man, will smooth it off and paint it. He's very good.
I'll be sure to send you pictures when it's finished.

Smooth it and paint it?

I was thinking more of building a 'get her glowing hot' fire in the smoking chamber and burning out anything that may have permeated the metal.

I sort of cringed when I saw the tank already had a coat of white, I don't know what paint was used but most will start smelling when they get hot. And outgassing paint (and body filler) might not be the healthiest thing to have around the food.

I may be worrying about nothing, but if I were you/he I would give it a good, hard, way hot test run before taking it anywhere.

Wart, there's no paint on the smoker yet. It's just been sand-blasted. And yes, it will have to be seasoned.
Only the outside will be painted.

Here are some newer pictures, including the inside of Kim's shop.

Nice blast job!

Seasoning is one thing, what I wrote about is another.

The metal needs to be made inert, seasoning probably would not get hot enough.

I had assumed that.

Tell your hubby that he'll live longer if he stays busy. But it should be something he likes to do...after all, one should enjoy retirement.

I have the same affliction. The only problem I have is I never know when I'm done doing nothing
