Default Bad idea?

I have a fairly large trailer offset smoker. It is reverse flow. The grate is about 6" above the removable drip pan. The idea is to put a removable gas burner on the drip pan so it could be used for a grill with the lid open. Any thoughts on this? Good or bad.

In general smokers are airtight low oxygen cookers but there are a few well designed hybrids. The danger in adapting a smoker to a grill is the possibility of inadequate oxygen and the fire going out and the gas combusting with a big boom when the chamber door is opened.( usually there is some smoldering wood which acts as the igniter) If you do it I would not close the chamber door with the gas on.

I just re-read your post and noticed you would cook with the door open. Just be careful you don't have a " helpful friend" close it.
