Does anyone have any better techniques? Would side chaining with a multiband compressor be a more effective solution?
You can try working with Mid/Side compression and EQ'ing, perhaps even M/S dynamic eq; that will let you be a little more heavy handed without destroying the rest of the kit.

I would encourage you to try and not overdo it though. Pretty often blending the original drum track with a sample can sound really good.
