Sure.  Go get whatever kernel source you want, patch it, then use
'make-kpkg' from the kernel-image package to build a .deb of your new
kernel.  Install it and read /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/README.gz and
you'll be right.

Basically, run 

$ make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --revision whatever.1 kernel_image kernel_headers

in your kernel source directory, and it'll pop up a .deb in ../.  You'll
at least need 'build-essential' to successfully build it.
