the vertical can be used for cold smoking, or lower temp cooking like sausage... but personally, I had more of a use for it as a volume cooker and that vertical has can hold alot of food.
BTW, something I forgot.. i have also added what I have called and "assist pan." Its and old 13 inch cake pan about 5 inchs high with holes punched in the bottom for airflow. I have put that pan in the bottom of the vertical filled with about 1/2-3/4 chimney of fully lit kingsford. it helps keep the temps up. The curve of the pipe keeps the pan off the floor and gives it the airflow.
