Hi all! A few years ago my wife got me an offset smoker for my birthday. Though I like it, I have some gripes that are making me think about maybe getting a Weber Smoky Mountain cooker. I'm doing this because I have been frustrated at how poorly my offset smoker holds heat (even though I have added mods to it such as gasket etc.) It seems it only holds a stable temp for about 2-3 hours. From what I've read, it seems that the drum/kettle models seem to hold heat much better. However some people have told me that they feel the taste of the meat is better with an offset smoker. What are your thoughts? All I know is I'm getting frustrated with smoking pork on my offset for 8-12 hours and it not being fully cooked, which leads to me having to put it in the oven or crockpot to finish it off...
