You're learning things the hard way on the Char Griller...I promise.

With my BGE XL, you'll feel like something is missing. No need to add fuel, very, very consistent temps. I'm not going to say set it and forget it...but compared to my old char, it darn near is.

In addition, and I know this is a smoker can do 550 to 700 degree pizza cooks, steak sears, etc., on a ceramic.

I say get what you can afford... there is certainly nothing wrong with a WSM either.

But having a ceramic, I'll never go back to anything else for smoking at home.
I like the old chargriller and its done well for me so far as I've been learning over the past three years. My wife actually started the addiction. She bought the chargriller at Krogers for $75.00. I know it uses a ton of charcoal (royal oak). It takes about twelve pounds of lump charcoal plus wood in the summer and double that in the winter to do a Pork Butt at 225 degrees!
