Welcome,:) Gorgeous KK you have chosen. I love having the high cap. When do you expect to see Tandoor sitting on your doorstep?

Right on!

If you could, can you tell us why you went with the KK 22" as opposed to the KK 23"? 

 I was leaning towards 19 HT and did a "multivariate decision analysis "  on 19, 22 and 23, but most of them are very subjective. 

  -thermal mass of 22 is higher

  -cross section area was similar to 23, but 22 high top had more upper volume

  -pricing was similar (even with added lower grill)

  - liked the leaner shape look of 22

  -and  more importantly, the tiles (more terra than blue) gave the  22 (that was in stock ) a the look my son and wife liked !! :-P

Welcome to the Family! Sounds like you made a well-informed choice for your situation.

We expect lots of pictures on its arrival in TX! And, of that all important virgin cook.

Thanks!

In terms of the increased volume under the lid, do you have a sense as to what that gives you in real cooking terms? Something like, “I couldn’t do a 15 lb. turkey on the upper rack with a KK 23”, but I’m able to do that with the KK 22” Hi Cap.”

Wilbur, if this is a super important question for you (ie, you are debating on another cooker and can't decide between a 23" and 22"), I could try to stack some soda cans up inside of each to give you an idea?  You can see a side-by-side of my 23" and 22" here (note that the 21" was actually a little over 22" when completed, so my 21 is the current 22:

I am not very quantitative when it comes to  some purchase decisions. Most of my criteria was subjective.

Then again, the 22" high-top might come in handy if I ever had to stack ribs one of top of other. Not that I might ever get to do it- but why take a chance these days?  :cool:

Can't wait to see some more pictures. If I lived in the area it would already be in the Backyard searing some steaks.
