Default Steel the basics....

I have done a little noob welding, nothing on anything that would drive down the road.

I just got this thing fired up (installed 220 outlet outside, the beauty of living in texas.) Everlast Power Arc 160 and it is awesome to say the least.

Anyway, I am working on converting an old gun safe into a reverse flow smoker. Looking around for plate, angle, flat stock, etc. Been nerdin around the web, and I think the type of steel I am looking for is an A36? Is this correct? It just a smoker so it doesn't have to be extremely strong, just cheap and complatable to 1/8 6011 rod.

That machine is capable of being set up for TIG but I am not quite up to that level of newbness to try it.
