By the way, my 22" Performer sits next to the 26 and I use the Perfomer as a prep table. Poor guy....
I get you but not helping me make a decision! LOL
Marty, since you have both, do you find the 26 uses significantly more fuel than the 22 for straight up grilling? It's got a decent amount more interior volume to heat up which is why I appreciate it for smoking, but hesitate to make it my go-to grill for smaller cooks like just a couple of steaks or a few burgers or etc.
