Default I think I need a bigger MLT - what are you using?

I'm moving up to 10 gal. batches. I brewed this weekend (actual 11 gal batch) attempting to use my 10 gal MLT with 22 lbs of grain. It was a nightmare. Stuck sparge, barely enough room to stir, etc... I need to re think this. What are y'all using??? I do a lot of IPA's so that usually means plenty of grain. After doing a search on this, I wasn't getting any good answers, so...

Thanks. I understand that I need to go larger. I am interested in hearing what others are using that is bigger than the standard 10 gal cooler.

Edit: Never mind. Just read that entire thread and there was plenty of info in there, as to what I was looking for. Thanks!
