Default Offset smoker with a vertical upright vs vertical upright on it's on?

Hey guys, was wondering yalls take on an offset smoker with a vertical upright on the other end vs having a separate vertical upright? I've always used my offset and vertical for different things, but I'm looking to have a new pit made (already picked my builder) with an offset and a vertical upright on the other end. I've thrown out the idea that I want a separate firebox dedicated to the upright and I want it to cook independently from the offset. Meaning I don't want heat or smoke from the offset to have any play in cooking my meat in the upright. I know having two fires might be a head ache... Aside from that, do you think this is overkill, waste of money, would appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

IMHO... may not be necessary. Having an offset with the upright chamber on the opposite end of the firebox will allow you to have different temperature zones. You have hotter temps near the firebox and warm temps on the other end off from one heat source (firebox). Its a strategic opportunity - using hot/warm/cool zones at your advantage.
