How Often Do You Egg?

Have had the LBGE since June 1.  When I am in town, I guess that I use the Egg about 4+ days per week.  Don't know where this compares to everyone else.  As they say, am I normal or nuts?  My goal for the next 6 months is to expand what I cook on the Egg so that I do not fall into the same routine.  Tried some ham appetizers and bacon this week.  The bacon (some candied - saw that at the fest, some not) needs more work, but the hammies were great. How often do you egg and what is your specialty / signature cook?

    I'd say my average is 4 days/week as well. The other 3 days I'm wishing I was egging.

    Haven't had a fully functioning oven in 3 years we've owned the house. Why bother fixing it when you can egg!

    Every weekend, and 2-3 times a week if I'm home and work does not get in the way.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Not enough. I only manage 1-2 times a week anymore. Ribs are my specialty that always get requested.

    I think I probably average 2-3 times a week. Try to egg at least 2 days on the weekend.

    Problem I find is that there's only the 3 of us; so just about every cook provides leftovers for the next day or two. If I cooked more than that I'd either run out of freezer/fridge space or waste it...

    If I could, have the time and had the upgraded storage, I'd probably try to egg everyday.

    Just happy knowing that what I do manage to egg those 3 days a week is better than 95% of what anyone else is cooking 7 days a week on their stoves.
  • Every day, unless I get home too late or have egged leftovers. Even the veggies that I use to make soup are egged.

  • On average 6-7 times a week.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I cook 2-3 times a week on mine. I wish it could be every day. My favorite thing to cook would be spatchcock chicken. My wife loves it. Hey -- I'm a Dirty Bird fan -- what more can I say....
