The issue with the kettle as opposed to the WSM is that with the 18.5" WSM you have 481 sq in of cooking space in total. The OTG kettle has 363 sq in of total cooking space, but you will likely have to use 1/3 to 1/2 of that to cook indirect, thus reducing your total cook space to 182-240 sq in of cooking space. That is a big diff. :) By the way I have a Performer and a 18.5" WSM. Use the performer for grilling with wood and the WSM for smoking. Also the gaser gets used for "quicker" cooks lol
