You are right. I know alot has to do with the cook, but no matter how good of a cook you are, pellet smokers just do not put out that same smoke profile that lump/wood chunks do. I could never taste any smoke with my pellet grills, even running them at 180 for hours.
I am also considering a primo oval xl with a ribrack. That would get me 6 racks and keep the really good flavor, but it is still not big enough for what I want.
