There's a guy here in the Baltimore area that makes these, and has a perpetual ad on CL fishing for 18" bowls. Must be a thing for the Star Wars fans. As far as I know, they are not used as grills or smokers post conversion.

That's a Napoleon smoker but cool nonetheless.

I'm just picturing this - I'd love to see someone dressed up as Darth Vader tending to an R2D2 smoker, if one could be made with high temperature paint that wouldn't be a food safety risk.

Ah, ok, that explains why the handles on the sides of each segment are there.

@56MPG I actually gave that guy a rusty old 18" bowl that I picked up on the side of the road in Baltimore (I stripped the usable parts first).  He makes remote controlled R2D2s and i believe he donates them to children's hospitals.  They certainly aren't being used as any type of cooker.

Here's his work:
