I agree with what boykjo said, but I'll add one thing.
Where is your heat source? If it's as the bottom and not shielded well, to evenly distribute your heat, you could get the bottoms of the links a bit dry or scorched. I learned that the hard way after building my first vertical smoker.
For me, I like the look of them after hanging, and I can also get a lot more in my smoker when hung.
