I have the 18 1/2 WSM. It works great, but I find myself wanting something with better access and more shelving.

I purchased an 18.5 wsm about 3 months ago and there hasn't been a weekend that i have not smoked something. That being said i wish it had wheels only bc i dont have a covered area above the smoker unless i plan ahead and put in garage. I cut a slot in the lip for the temp probes, and first few cooks have been pork butts. Last night i did a Boston butt and 4 racks of ribs, 2 beef and 2 spares cut into St. Louis style. I am tending to do bigger cooks so i wish i had the 22". However i am expecting my stumps smoker in 3 weeks now!

I had the same debate last winter. Ended up getting the 22.5 because I knew that at some point, I personally, was going to "wish I had gotten the bigger cooker" I think you have been given some good advice here, and it is really going to boil down to personal preference. Whatever you decide, you won't go wrong with the cooker, its a good one...
