Can't go wrong with a 22.5 WSM. I have been doing contest with a one 18.5 and one 22.5 works well. Good luck 👍


Have fun and happy smoking

A 22 1/2" WSM is right in your price range and turns out great 'q.

Good luck.

Don't buy a wsm 22................unless you want a great smoker, easy to use and in your price range.

Good luck with the competitions!

WSM is the perfect complement for the price imo.

You have the high-heat capability of the Akorn, and the low n' slow of the WSM not to mention good capacity.

I compete on four 18.5" WSMs. It would be the perfect complement.

Seems to me a 22" WSM would be easier to move around then a UDS would be,

That answer took longer than it usually does

Seriously- can't go wrong with either a wsm or uds. And I would definitely take a wsm over a napoleon.
