Is using a calorimeter a good way to verify the difference in total power output of 2 test circuits and results of a meter?

Is using a calorimeter a good way to verify the difference in total power output of 2 test circuits.
The proticol that I followed---Provide a known amount of power to a variable resistive load that converts electrical energy into heat energy inside of insulated container. Using a probe from a therometer, track heat over time from starting temp back to "starting temp". Graph results on paper and count squares. If one graph provides more squares than other, means more "total" power was provided to the load from that circuit...
The actual power supply used on all test is a 6f capacitor charged to 12v and discharged to 8v..
if this helps
Is my logic correct, if so help me prove it......
Note: This test is used to verify results of a meter
