I think others would be more qualified to comment, but, I do believe there will be a difference based purely on direct fired heat versus indirect fired heat. Fat drippings have a distinct flavor when burned. I can totally see having both types of cookers. I do not think it would be either an improvement or a digression, just a difference.

You like my drawing skills! That's why I have to contract out my Avatar edits and Improvements.

The biggest reason I was thinking of the offset fire was to achieve lower temp smokes. Not necessarily a cold smoke for cheese and the like but temps I could sustain at around 150*.
I'm going to move forward with the mods at some point in the near future so we'll know if it works or if it's a waste of time.

A couple things that inspired the thoughts were N8Man's Schlong Tube and an older advertisment that showed an offset firebox on a barrel...I'll try to find it and post.

Yeah, agreed. I read here, somewhere...a major difference/benefit/bad aspect/great aspect of the UDS is that you get that meat dripping onto your fire box...from a far.

Now, if you want an offset, build an offset. Like Bob says...it doesnt hurt to have two different cookers! I jsut htink if you are going for a nice working off set...there are better platforms out there.

And...better drawings!
