I have owned both a cheap offset and now a more expensive OK Joe's. I will tell you as a matter of fact there is a big difference between the two. Cheap offsets don't seal well,have a number of leaks, and very thin metal. I have heard you can seal leaks with high temp silicone and I would recommend a blanket.
If you are getting 1.5 hours per pound I would say that's pretty good.
