Default New possible custom Pitmaker BBQ vault idea

Since I have always been a fan of BBQ'd food and not smoked food, I constantly find myself cooking on my UDS, but the same problem always remains, not enough room. But it still has a better flavor than the vault. I just live the clean flavor if wood burned down to coals and food juices sizzling on them. So this idea is a direct cooking vault. A BBQ vault that I can get that great flavor that I miss. So I was thinking of getting one designed for me and my needs. Basically the same design but no reverse flow, exhaust release will be at the top instead of the sides. Delete the water pan reservoir so it's direct heat. Depending on what your cooking, you got. 5 grate levels to pick from. Essentially a really large UDS. Thoughts?

I'm all about knowing my pit. I know exactly how my vault runs according to how it's loaded down with food. I really only need the guru for cooks when I'm not around. I just choke down the intake to limit draft and the fan creates any additional draft needed. So I have ready emailed George at Pitmaker. I do not use my water reservoir whatsoever, so here is my plan. I'm gonna go take it up there next week and they are gonna cut out the drip pan leaving 2" around the sides. Mounting holes are gonna be drilled so that a new removable drip pan can be fabricated and bolted down to cook larger quantities of food when smoking
With this mod Which I'm gonna call the "comp mod" it can be converted to Essentially a big arse UDS. A solid shelf will replace the expanded metal bottom shelf for people that still want their indirect cooking. I just miss that flavor I grew up on, that true BBQ'd flavor and not just smoked. I'm damn excited boys!
