On mine it is hotter where the heat and smoke exits from the RF baffle, opposite the firebox, but on the occasions I have actually measured it, my temp difference is only about 5*-10* across the cooking grate.

I've cooked on both, all about the same 120 gallon size. I agree with the comments above, not necessarily better but more even heat and I believe a RF is a little more fuel effecient and you don't need to "feed the beast" quite as often.

Got a bunch of cooking toys and a custom metal fabrication shop where I spend my time building all sorts of smokers & outdoor cooking gear.
