The other day, my wife came up to me as I was egging, and said, "can we get ANOTHER egg?" "Like a smaller one, for different cooks?" I was taken back by this and was left with my jaw on the deck! Has anyone else had this happen? Am I just really REALLY lucky?

Now I need to decide what size to get.

 

Ps. She also has been researching outdoor kitchens and has already called contractors to come out and give quotes! I dont get it, but I am not complaining!

    Will you have her come talk to Mrs. G? She's not totally on board with it, but says if I save my pennies I can get another one. That's a lot of pennies.

    Listen to Cen-Tex. Get it done...I should be so lucky-matter-of-fact I'm behind Griffin in the "on-board" camp although I do all the BGE cooks which amount to 90+% of the household cooks.  Remember "SWMBO" rules and when you get direction like that...(although to be fair-be ready for the return serve:))

    It is unreal, she knew prior to me getting my xl a couple months back that I wanted an EGG. She knew how serious I was about BBQ and said I could get one. Now she eats what I cook on it and wants an outdoor egg sanctuary and another egg... I think I want to re-marry her. I am only 27, but I guess this is a good sign of what is to come!

    x2!!

    Sounds like you have a winner, Jason. Just be careful.....she might have an expensive purchase in mind for herself. "But remember when I said you could get a second Egg?"

    I agree...see heres the curveball..... She presented it and acts like she wants the second egg for HER! So what I will do, is throw that expensive purchase at her, telling her I need to buy something expensive for myself!

    My rule of thumb is never play mind games with my wife, but then again shes smarter than me. Just a thought.

    I agree, I am not playing mind games...I am simply complying with her demand to get another egg!

    She said I should get a mini for tailgaiting. (Lions season ticket holder)

    Here is my thought. If I get a large...come lions time, she will say to get a mini! Yes?

    When the wife and I went to the Salado Fest and got our 2nd egg (SBGE), she said she wanted a mini cause it was "cute".  I still haven't got it yet and the flame has burned out.  Do it now Jason before she moves on.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • michigan_jasonmichigan_jason Posts: 1,299
    @cazzy what size to go with though....

    I have a large and a small.  I love the combo and the small also travels well.  It takes up 1 seat in my civic and i load and unload by myself with all internals.

    I'll eventually get the mini though :)

    My large only takes up one seat in my civic..... Loaded by myself





    Couldn't resist!


    Im with @cazzy a small or med would be more cooking space and. It hard to transport at all

    Ok, so the mini "as cute as it is" is out of the question for functionality. I want to be able to use the new egg at tailgate (which is every lions home game and 2-3 road games /year) So do I go small or med? I will end up with a large in the future too, just dont want one now.



    "Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage."

  • Well from what I know is, when you tailgate you end up cooking for people you did not account for so I would go with a MED if not the LG. Dont forget the Nest Handler, it will help keep the egg stable while being transported.  Man your so lucky!
