Just a few thoughts on the medium egg. Unsolicited...but thoughts nevertheless!! And sorry about the length![p]My first egg was a medium egg. And it was my first non gas cooker. My introduction to real BBQ....and an awesome grill. At once I was hooked, and within a few weeks, I knew I needed something larger. So I traded it in for the large. At the time it was 100 bucks more, plus I paid a $40 "restocking fee" on the medium. But I had a large. [p]A happy camper, I bought a small...for lunches, smaller family cooks, side dish cooks, camping and travelling. The pair worked great. [p]At the Eggfest last week, I picked up a medium egg from Dale (Daa Mayoor) and Seasonal Distributors (Tri County Hearth and Patio...good folks), and I have been using it nearly daily. After 3 years of cooking with the large and small, I can see myself using the medium more than the others. The cooking grid, like the small, is closer to the coals than the large. Great for searing.[p]The bottom firebox area is deep, and can handle a hefty load of lump. But more narrow and with less mass, more efficient that Mr. Big. [p]Though the grilling area is noticably smaller than the large, it is much larger than the small...and can accomodate the extended grate nicely. The dome is deep, and lots of vertical cooking space for indirect and double rack setups.[p]This baby is cooking real nice for me! So, I know nobody asked, but with all of the posts there are about which size to buy, I thought I might babble for a moment about my excitement.[p]Hefe-Wiesens to you.
