Was wanting to get some input on the SNS for the 26". Have read that the 22" works fine in the 26". And that there isn't much of a difference in the amount of charcoal one holds vs the other. I don't have the XL SNS to compare to the one for the 22". So was wanting to see your thoughts on this? Thanks!

I hear it works fine . Same thing just a bit smaller . I don't use one myself . I go with the snake method in mine . I know guys swear by the SnS . Do you have a 26 and the smaller SnS , or are you looking to buy ?

Never had a fire in it yet! I had a 22" that I was using but lacked room. So bought the 26" and home depot actually took back the 22" after a month's worth of use.
I think that is part of HD's return policy and good for you and HD.
But yeah, just when you think a cooker is big enough to fit your needs, fate raises it's head and says otherwise.

Yea I was surprised. Since I bought the 22" I ended up selling my pellet cooker buying the 26" and think im getting ready to grab a WSM for the longer pork butt smokes while I'm at Tball games

That sounds like a solid plan. Of course, there's all sorts of controllers for the WSM like DigiQ etc.

That 26 will smoke that pork butt the same or better than a WSM . I do all my briskets on my 26 , and have a pork butt for Sunday going on the 26 .
That being said , I have the 26 , a 22 Performer deluxe and a 14 " WSM .
Now that I think about it , get the WSM and you should have kept the 22 .

I know I wanted too. But my wife was complaining about too many grills and smokers. That's why I got rid of the pellet and took the 22" inch back. I have an old MES30 that I use in the winter to smoke with that sits all summer long. But when I had 5 sitting around it got to be a bit much for her evidently. Lol
