Why so many Eggs???

Newby 1st post: I bought a Large last September and have been enjoying it ever since ... and lurking on the Forum, reading and learning. Now I'm coming in from the cold. [p]After looking at a few of the Visitor Profiles I notice that many of the regulars have several Eggs. This may be a dumb question (like ... how can you have too many toys?) but why have multiple BGEs? If you own and use several, would you pls let me know why and how you use them? (So many Eggs, so little time???)[p]If it isn't obvious, I'm trying to justify another trip to my dealer.[p]Thanks,[p]DobieDad

    Let me just tell you about last night...I did the first stage of T-Rexing a prime rib at 750 on my small. Meanwhile I brought my large up to a gentle 300 for the rest of the cook 20 minutes after I pulled the seared roast. I have also cooked New York Strips on my small while lobster tails were cooking on my large. I have also egged steaks on my small, while doing chicken breasts on my medium, while baby backs were finishing up on my large! isn't a dress rehearsal!
    And I bet you think we have a big family, right? Nope, just the two of us, and believe it or not, I'm 177 and Pat is 140.

    Because the gods decree we should own many Eggs. To be a True Believer the ownership of many Eggs assures one of a larger waistline and the undying love of our families and neighbors.
    and . . . because we can.

    my wife just loved it! Personally I feel I put too much rub on it and then the rub burnt during the sear and I didn't care for the taste that left. I'll definitely do the T-Rex on a prime rib again as it is a natural for cooking a thick chunk of meat like that. Thanks for your help!
