Default Cinder Block Verticle Smoker ~ Direct vs Indirect

Poured the foundation today for my "Outdoor Kitchen" area. It will include a verticle smoker built with cinder blocks. Inner dimensions will be 24" X 24" X 6' tall. I want to go with indirect heat but my concern is that it will be difficult to maintain enough heat. The inner dimensions of the offset fire box (also built out of cinder block and lined with fire bricks) will be 24" X 20" X 28" tall. Are my concerns valid? Should I just put a door at the bottom and make it a direct hest smoker?
