If I were to build a smokehouse, what wood would I need to buy?

I considered both pine and cedar when I built mine. Then I went to the lumber store and found out the pine was 1/3 the price. It's been working great!!!

I covered a metal box with Cedar fence board. It is cheap and looks good. I won't build an all wood one because my buddy did that and his almost burnt his cedar mill down...
