I guess that would depend on the size of the smoker and whats being cooked but that was not my experience with the pecos. I honestly also expected that it would be much less efficient than my stick-burner uds ,but it only used about 25% more wood.

so I would assume it would only consume about 25% more charcoal than a charcoal burner as well, assuming a well made offset (like the pecos) and a similar size to a uds(also like a pecos)

Charcoal fueled cookers tend to not be offset but the heat flows direct. You cant compare different cookers fuel mileage. My 007 live fire drum is efficient compared to the stick burner offset. Charcoal cookers work off a controled burn, stick burners work off of draft. Unless you choke down the stick burner is gonna burn fast with charcoal and even then the offset nature will not be as effiecent.

Choking down will possibly give bitter or over smoked....but since you want more it would have been an idea, even if it were expensive to do

Honestly, thats what I love about the M1, M36, and M48.

If I'm in the mood for stick burning, I can smoke a whole brisket or anything for that matter with nothing but wood. If I don't feel like baby sitting as much, I will load it up with lump with a few small chunks of wood and go that method. I can throw wood in the firebox and lump up top and do some awesome reverse searing.

food for thought- you will notice that most of the stickburner guys also have a charcoal burner for their "easy" cooks

Most definitely. There's the easy cooks, the fun cooks, and the funnerest cooks. At least one of these types uses charcoal.....
