The reason I ask is that is seams like my stuff smokes a lot quicker than the times I see suggested. I am using the weber smokey mountain 18.5. Since the heat comes straight up does that mean my meats will smoke quicker? I always smoke around 225.
Do different smokers smoke differently

Nope, every smoker smokes exactly the same
They're all different--sometimes vastly so...size, humidity, efficiency all play important parts...if you find your smoker consistently cooking faster than your peers, you may want to verify your smoker temps, as that's a frequent area of inaccuracy...

Is getting done cooking faster than other people report a bad thing? As long as you know how your WSM operates that is more important than anything else. If you know your cooker then you will be successful, whether your thermometer is accurate or not.JM2C.
Had to pull the ribs off. Done in 4 hours at 225. I put them in the color as mentioned. Will they be ok in there for 3 hours?
