Mini egg

I have looked at pictures of big and mini eggs on the forum but then had a BGE dealer say that a mini egg is too small to be useful. For what do you owners of the mini egg use it? I am already considering the purchase of a second BGE to keep my medium egg company. Thanks to everyone on this forum. All of you influenced my decision to buy my first egg.

    the walrus:[p]A couple of steaks, lamb chops, or lamb shanks, chicken wings for two, chicken breasts for chicken sandwiches, etc. Generally, the Mini is for medium to high temperature grilling for one or two. If you have a medium and you want versatility, consider a large for entertaining and "quantity" cooks. If the medium is sufficient, and you just have just two to cook for the Mini may be all you need . . .

    the walrus,[p]I have a medium and a mini egg and love both of them, however I use the mini for ccoking (grilling) for myself, picnics, etc. I think the dealer told you correctly. The mini is not good for low and slow. I'd compare it more to a high tech habachi. It will get up in temp (for seared steaks and burgers) and does a great job, but is not a low & slow smoker.[p]Smokey

    <p />the walrus,
    This is a picture Earl posted awhile back showing how much you can cook on the mini at one time,it's a great little grill to tail gate with.
