This is the only video of one that I have seen in action. The pit is super spacious @ over 4000" of cookspace, alot more than the vault. Will I ever need that much cookspace probably not. Can you get a really good barky brisket like pitmasterT does on his Brazos, on a vertical, probably not. Just seems to be too much moisture in the verticals. It's hard to ignore that a majority of briskets inhave seen at cookoffs that win were cooked on offsets.
