I love my 22.5, and I have a spare cylinder and door so I might have to try that double setup.

That's ok if you have a WSM, I can look past the 49er thing, besides the WSM's are silver and black

Default I have 2 18 inchers

One I bought for 160 about ten years ago, it was a floor model at a hardware store and was missing the door knob-weber sent me one for free.
I "accidentally" modded this one up. I bent the door one day and it was cooking pretty hot. Out of frustration I sealed the door up with 4 inch aluminum tape. Well after one cook that tape became welded to the cooker, couldn't get it off.
So I bought a guru and started using that exclusively with the wsm. With that door sealed I can get 18 hours at 225 on SIX pounds of charcoal. Problen is the thing burn funny now and will extinguish itself sometimes without the guru.
Good fortune. I am perusing craigslist one day and there is an 18" wsm!
A) Its one durn mile from my house;
B) Listed as new/unused in box-"Won at golf tournament. Don't need one, I have a nice gas grill"; and if I'm lyin I'm dyin,
C) Fifty dollars!!!
Taa Daaa. I now have my hopped up model as well as a stocker.


I have since bought an egg, which I love, but I couldn't imagine letting the Webers go. Its just one of those products-it works soo damn well it is just something you keep. I'm building a real covered patio this summer and I MIGHT lose the taped up one, but I will always have one.

I've only smoked twice it's been on the WSM. I've already smoked 4 butts, a pork loin, and a brisket. My product is better than I've had at any so-called bbq joing.

I love my 18.5 inch and it is very easy to control the temps.

Let's talk mods though.

I now use the base of a clay pot in place of water as a heat sink. Wrapped in foil the clean up is very easy and I don't have nasty water to discard nor do I have to worry about refilling the water on a loonng smoke.

I also added a second charcoal grate stacked on top of the first one at a right angle. Makes much smaller holes and blocks the openings on each side of the single one that used to allow chunks to fall down. I use lump coal sometimes and it seems to keep the random pieces up longer.

I replace the door with a stainless steel door from Cajun Bandit, much nicer door and it's a heavier gage so it holds heat better.

My is the old school model so I added a therm to the top.

The ultimate add-on was a BBQ Guru CyberQ II. With this baby I can literally set it up and walk away for as many as 12 to 14 hours and never look at the unit. Great for all night cooks.

I live in Kansas to it gets cold and this winter I want to buy one of the BBQ Silicon jackets for insulation. It also extends the burn time of your fuel so that you can easily smoke for 20 hours without a refill.

I bought mine at a local Ace that has a customer appreciation day once a year. 30% off any single item in the store. There are always a bunch of people in line when they open and most are buying a Weber Gasser.
