Not a significant difference, but the smaller chamber volume requires less fuel to operate.
I can still fit 2 whole chickens in there.
If I need a larger chamber I have a 16 gallon drum (cut out at the bottom like the tamale pot) which I use in place of the tamale pot and sits on the Smokey Joe, but the 16 gallon set up uses significantly more fuel than the standard mini-wsm.
