Well, after a few years using my ECB (with mods learned here) it is starting to crap out on me. I got some unexpected money for Christmas from my grandfather, so I made up my mind to take the plunge and get a WSM. So then I had to decide whether to get the 18" or the 22". The ECB was fine for my needs as I typically only cooked for my family of 5 but occasionally made stuff for bigger get togethers. So, it seemed I didn't really need the extra space that the 22" would give. I might regret this decision later on, but for now I can live with it. So, I ordered up the 18" version on aimtofind.com and found one for only 249.99 with free shipping. It is scheduled to arrive on Monday. YEAH, BABY!
