Yep, pulled the trigger on a small brother to my large egg.
The large is necessary for the "company" cooks but seemed like
overkill when doing burgers, etc. for the two of us and I've gotten lazy about
rearranging everything to do a small cook on the large. If that sounds like
rationalization...I'll cop to it.
My wife actually was part of the process and encouraged me to buy it. She
recently had hip surgery and I think that the pain killers she was taking were
working in my favor. Well, that and her basic good nature.
What was odd was that the sales guy tried to talk me out of buying a small.
"Too hard to get up to temperature" and "Doesn't hold the heat
well, what you really want is a large".
OK, he's trying to upgrade me so I told him that I already had a large and
wanted a small to go with it. His response was "If you're used to a large
you really won't like the small, takes much longer to heat up".
The owner of the store was standing about 15 feet away while this is going on
and I kept glancing over at him to see if he is going to shut this guy up, but
no action on his part. Finally I was able to force the sales(?) guy to sell me
the small, but it wasn't easy! Today the delivery guy said that he was being
laid off because sales where down. Gee, really?
Tonight we're going to dirty that puppy up and do those burgers.
My Mexican neighbor who helped me move things around (got rid of the gasser)
approved: "one for the tortillas and one for the meat"
