In the Weber the heat & smoke flow up and around the meat and the area is more compact so your flavor will be stronger VS the Offset where if not designed properly the Heat and Smoke will rise to early and pass over the top and out the stack so it has little contact with you meat Plus when you add the extra Cubic inches of volume it is more dispersed. Think about adding a Baffle and some tuning plates and switch to all wood for heat, some lump in the beginning to help establish a coal bed is fine and preheated splits to maintain your Zone.
Thanks to everyone for the replies, sorry for the long delay in replying (unexpected trip out of state).
After much thought, this post accurately describes what happened. The position of the shoulders (opposite end of the firebox), and the heat in the firebox (about 600 degrees) I've come to the conclusion that the smoke never touched the meat. The smoke went up, over, and out without any contact whatsoever! Never even considered that prior to cooking!
