I don't use water in my WSMs and I would never consider moving the cooker in the middle of a cook.
The handles make the WSM much easier to move, especially the 22 1/2" model.

For the handles I made, 5 5/8", center to center.

The 22 1/2" WSM cover fits very tight. The 18 1/2" cover ain't even close to fitting.
I got a couple of these covers on Amazon, "Brinkmann Dome Smoker Cover". It easily fits on the big WSM. Though the 22 1/2" Weber cover fits the 18 1/2" WSM, I got 2 Brinkmann covers, just so they match.
