I know my gut is telling me go with 18.5...based on our cook preferences...save the $100.00 and stretch out my charcoal and wood consumption. Few reasons Im even considering the 22.5 is the door/hinge seems to be better and it appears the factory temp gauge appears to better.
Also the fact is that this would be my 3rd cooker..Im thinking 18.5.
Anyone with the 18.5 have any issues with the door hinge staying closed or issues opening it while cooking to add wood or charcoal? How about the factory temp gauge?
