In my experience, longer smoke time does not provide more smoke flavor. I is easy to over smoke poultry. Also, higher temperatures create crisper skin, if you like to eat the skin. An option would be to crank up the temperature at the end to crisp the skin. Also, how much work is it to run your cooker at a low temperature? For most people, higher temps are easier to maintain.
