Since we don't know what bad stuff could come from the heated/burning paint, its best to strip it. Most smokers come with bare metal insides, or are painted with high-temp paint designed for this application. Almost every forum post I have checked on the subject say its best to not try to re-paint the insides and just "season" them instead. Once stripped, coat the metal with shortening (ie Crisco) and get it hot to bake it in, just like a cast-iron pan. It should leave a hard shiny coating. The one thing I have found though, is the bottom drawer holding the fire will tend to rust from exposure to the heat and caustic ash. Be sure to dump the ash right after each use to slow down the rust. Remember, any fumes emitted on the inside might get absorbed by the meat (just like the smoke), its probably best to err on the side of caution/extra work to make it safe.
im making one today, all the videos online and forums never seem to really address the paint on the inside of the draws. I'm gonna cut the bottoms out and replace them with metal grills but should I worry about the paint on the side walls of draws??? I was gonna remove it but I don't wanna do the extra work of its unnecessary

I tried with the pencil, and it didn't work. Based on other comments here, I glued a small piece of aluminum foil to the offending contact, and it worked like a charm.
