This isn't about who is objectively better. These guys were two great blues artists, with plenty of similarities and differences. Who do you prefer to listen to? Personally, I like Howlin Wolf a little bit more. His growling voice is really cool, and I like how he messes around with the blues formula; Spoonful and Smokestack Lightnin' are a sort of Modal Blues.
