35 - last summer I had been talking about how charcoal is better than gas, and how some people have both (notably Alton Brown), and might only use charcoal on the weekend. Last year at Christmas my wife apparently had been dropping hints referencing this, she had been planning on picking a Weber kettle up as a surprise present, but when I missed the hints she assumed I wasn't interested.
We actually talked about it after the holidays and she was going to get me one for Valentine's Day, but when we went to our grill store the prices of the BGE weren't that much higher than for the kettles, and they are definitely more versatile. We went back and did some research, and ended up getting it a month later and I she bought it as a combo Valentine's and birthday present.
37. My gasser had been knocked over in a storm and it suffered some damage and the cheap offset smoker I was using was way too thin to hold heat well. I was looking at getting a Lang 36 and new gasser when my neighbor started on me about getting an egg. I admit I resisted at first and took me a while to warm up to the idea, but a few weeks later a Large BGE somehow ended up in the back of my truck.

Love the Canadian spelling of "humour". Me thinks Stike is still dormant. Just a guess though.
