Am I crazy?

We went to the in-laws house for New Year's, and my mother-in-law's birthday celebration. Been here a few days now. Before we left, a 620 mile drive, my wife said could I take me BGE? It is a large, but I said sure. It took over 2 hours to break it down and pack it for the trip. So yesterday, the day of the birthday, I did two pork butts. Fed 60 people. There was a lot of other food. But the pork was the main event. It got quite good reviews, it was almost perfect even though it only got cooked to 185 internal due to time constraints. It was also my first overnight cook.

So I must be crazy. Even though it took a lot of effort to take it along, it was worth it. And the bonus is my wife said we should get a small egg to travel with. Even though I never said one peep about getting another egg. I guess she is an honorary member of the cult.

Have a happy new year everybody.

    Yes she is an honorary member of the cult and you should take every advantage of her  accommodating suggestion to get another egg immediately while the success of the past travel and good time BGE cook is still fresh in her mind....  Good on you Doc....

  • Well I don't know if your crazy or not but sounds like your just like the rest of us! I put my LBGE in my car all the time. I can have it loaded in about ten minutes tho. But it has shown the wife the need for a small egg.

    Buy that small egg, you have permission, so you won't be needing to ask for forgiveness. Nice cook BTW, helped out the MIL. B-Day. Good on you.
