I'll answer assuming two steaks, but my answer isn't either of the poll options. I'd go Jumbo Joe, the 18". There's enough room for two zone cooking for two steaks and it's small enough that you can get the coals together nicely for a good sear. I've done the chimney thing and it works, but it's a one steak at a time deal and that part I didn't like.

Default Weber Jumbo Joe Kettle

I would vote for the Weber Jumbo Joe if it was listed as it with a couple of modifications is one fine steak cooker.



I run a stainless steel charcoal basket that raises up my coal bed up closer to the Grill Grates. It is also the size of my two standard Grill Grates.



My setup heating up for some steaks.



I like to run my cooker at about 600-650 degrees for the best results for my steaks.



A nice 1-1/4” ribeye (16 oz) will cook in about 8-9 minutes total to a nice medium rare steak.



A nice ribeye just off of the Jumbo Joe.



I can also run a flat cast iron griddle with this setup.

I've never been able to get great heat out of my Smokey Joe like I can on my larger kettles so I would go with the 22" kettle and build an appropriate sized fire.

I would do it with a mini but since there's no choice for mini, Smokey Joe will do
