John, heavier guage steel is bound to help hold heat. I never did a before & after test on mine. When I got the Bandera last April it was a complete rust bucket. I found this site and one of the Brothers hooked me up with his welder friend. The rest is history.

One of the things that I have been meaning to do is add firebricks to either the firebox side or cooking chamber side or both. That's bound to hold heat as well.
