That is a hard hypothetical scenario - because not every fabricator offers the same features, options, same size for the same price.

Klose is a traditional offset - which offers a 1/2" firebox and an upright option on the opposite end of the firebox. The design does reveal hot/cold spots that can be used as an advantage of a simultaneous multi-temp zone cooking from one heat source.

Lang is a reverse flow smoker - reduces the hot/cold by preheating a full length baffle under the cooking grates. Reverse flow smokers are recognizable by having the smokestack and firebox on the same side. The vertical chamber option is built over the firebox.

Each has their pro's and cons - both are great cookers.
