Only you can figure out the best one for you.
The WSM is a fantastic cooker. I have recommended them to many people. That said, I have a BDS and have recommended drum cookers to many people too.
Some differences are: a drum does not have a water pan, has a larger capacity and gives the food a distinct flavor from the fats dripping on the coals. Since they are bigger than a WSM, they are harder to move around and depending on your particular drum design they could be harder to clean. I think my BDS is easier to run than a WSM.
