Is it heresy?

The past two nights I grilled dinner.  Did bacon-wrapped chicken last night and cheeseburger subs tonight.  Having said that, I used my Weber kettle out of convenience.  I felt a little dirty and ashamed.  Should I? Or do any of you do the same if your grilling smaller items?

    Egg only. If small I just reuse whatever lump is in egg. Or, cook extra and freeze.

    If you ate them and weren't kicking yourself for not using the Egg, then nothing's wrong.  I haven't sold my Weber yet, and actually prefer the "clean" heat on grilled peaches.

    I kept my Weber.  It's my first love.  I use it for hot&fast and it works just fine and gets the job done quickly.  I even use (forgive me) briquettes in it.  The BGE is miles ahead of the Weber for lots of stuff.  Use what you have for what you got.  If you cook it outside it all counts!

    No heresy, like a lot of people, Weber is what got me interested in grilling and bbq. I still use both and am happy with both. They work a little differently from each other, but both make me happy.

    Haven't had a Webber for years, but the skin on a roasted chicken from the Webber is much better than the egg IMO.  I am unable to duplicate it in the egg.

    I took my weber to the office.  I cooked on my weber for the first time in months and it felt strange.  Food came out good and no complaints from coworkers.

    Grill hotter. Go 400 direct, high in the dome. Use NO oil. Very good skin.

    Sold mine within a week of buying my egg.  My first few EGG cooks were "grilling" food (chicken and brats, I believe) and saw no need to keep the old grill after cooking them on the egg.

  • use a mini for small cooks, xl for large and webern 300 for a drink platform...do have some chips stored inside and use the bottom for the plate setter and pizza stone...still have two tanks of gas!?!!

    cant wait for Salado getting a medium there...house will be officially "egged" at that point..:)

    you will forgive yourself when you realize the only thing you can do with the weber is ????well there has to be something!

    I use an adjustable rig at the top height.  Usually around 400 +or- a few degrees.  I think I have tried oil and no oil, I can't seem to remember a difference.  The skin is OK but just not quite right.  What is the problem with the oil, you think that would help brown and crisp it up.
