That sounds very similar to my smoker.  Does she still have the racks for it?
Is there a temperature gauge on the dome?

If it is like mine, the bigger enamel bowl is were you put the hot coals and on
those hot coals you put your wet wood chips to create the aromatic smoke.  The
other smaller enamel bowl is for water, which helps keep the direct heat from the 
meat and also create some steam that keeps the meat from drying out.  The door
should be where you can keep track of the coals and put in more wood chips.  

Any good smoking cookbook on the subject can help you with how to use your smoker.
