"tastes Different".. I can buy that, but " tastes better" ??... depends who is doing the cooking and tasting.
Agreed. Although I'm not one of them, some folks don't like the raised direct / open pit barbecue flavor you get from a full-size BDS / UDS cooker. That said, before getting my drums I got into raised direct cooking on my Egg, and now I also have a third option to cook raised direct on my Smokey Joe Tallboy.... in raised direct set-up, all three cookers deliver a slightly different flavor to the meat as well as a different smell out of the top vent.

So,...... One man's sweet spot might not be another man's sweet spot.
