Marc, this is not a solution to your smoker quest, per se, but you might be 
able to adapt this technology.  In the American southwest, they roast (for 
peeling) chiles such as Big Jims and the other New Mexico types, and do 
loads at one time.  Some folks have adapted clothes dryer drums with holes 
in them (they may be commercial clothes dryers) and fins to tumble contents 
as it spins for roasting chiles.  Chile-heads used to have basic info on 
smoking on their website.  Is that completely gone or did someone pick up 
that information on their hard drive?  Maybe someone (such as Mike Bower) 
could forward it to you. Margaret L
