Depending on how you like to cook a reverse flow design can be great. On a larger offset than Norco is talking about I really prefer the different temps that Phil mentioned.
Using tuning plates you can really even the temps out, and still have a nice hot spot to speed things along or sear something without giving up too much capacity for low and slow cooking.
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. --Frank Zappa
