They're both great pits but I think that I would choose the Jambo. The reason why is that for me a traditional configuration with tuning plates gives more versatility than the RF design. With the tuning plates I can get even temps across the pit or I can give myself hot spots or cooler spots in the pit with a simple adjustment whereas with the RF you have a more even temp from end to end that is non negotiable. So, if I want to do more than one kind of meat, at a slightly different temp I can and I can also have a holding area in the pit after setting up for a cooler spot while still cooking in the hot spots. The traditional offset has a little more thinking involved in it but again, the versatility is the key for me!
