    My personal choice is vertical. However this is probably due to the fact I have always used verticals, and had very good luck with them. I am in no way saying, a horizontal is inferior, just never used one so I have nothing to compare. 
  4. its all choice and what you want to do, whole pigs are tough in a vertical, but u can gain a shelf or two more but they will be smaller so in the end its close . and if u think about it almost everyone builds a horizontal,tried and true design with few bugs and turns out great que, just throwing some thoughts in the mix good luck with your build
