Anyone have any issues with the door on the 18.5..when trying to add additional wood or not feeling it was secure enough? Or the factory gauge?
I have a Masterfirge and a Kamado Joe and thinking about adding to the cooking arsenal.
Its just me and my wife and we do the occasional entertaining....we prefer to do ribs, pulled pork, and beer can chicken. We dont cook turkeys or brisket. No real overnights either...Id probably uae the Joe for that. This is why Im trying to see which unit is the smarter choice as a 3rd cooker, based on our cooking preference and size of family.
The door and factory gauge look of better quality on the 22.5 vs the 18.5...but Im not sure its $100.00 difference worthy.
Would love to hear input from those out there that may had issues with the 18.5 or didnt have any issues at all. Plus the 18.5 would help conserve on wood and charcoal....all the extra hundo for chimney and accessories. All input appreciated!
