I suppose if you had enough room/height you could, then put your grilling coals on top of the box for direct grilling if you had the clearance to allow enough space for ash to fall. Keep in mind there is a formula for firebox/cook chamber size ratio, and you'd have to make sure to stay within these requirements for the whole thing to work correctly.

Personally I'd just fire it with an indirect fire setup for smoking, and grill direct over that fire as desired during the cook. This setup also works great for reverse searing the meat. Smoke on the indirect end for a while, then slide meat down and finish it over the coals.
