While on the subject of gravity feed smokers, how is the overall smoke flavor these units produce? Is it comparable to a WSM or stick burner?

The overall smoke flavor is closer to the wsm than the stickburner. With the stumps and the wsm you are controlling/limiting the air flow and charcoal/wood burning.
With the stickburner, you are encouraging air flow and wood consumption to maintain a clean fire.
Both can produce great but different products, both can be over smoked and produce creosote.

It has been my experience with Stumps that the smoke flavor is mild and very clean. That is because the smoke wood is placed under the fire and generally does not come in direct contact with fire. Additionally, the smoke must pass through the fire before entering the cook chamber, which seems to "clean" it. The WSM is very easy to over smoke where as the stumps is more like an oven and is very easy to under smoke.
