I haven't used the 22" but I hear it's as easy as the 18". But yeah the webers are ready to go out of the box, despite what you some people say, there is no need to season them, if you have a basic understanding of cooking with charcoal then there is really very little learning curve. And for the price you can't beat the quality, the porcelain coating on webers will stand up to years of use with really only the most basic of maintenance. I have weber kettles that have been outside, in the weather, uncovered, used hard for 15+ years and they are still going strong.
