How much food can you cook on a small?

edited 9:31AM in EggHead Forum
Qbabe and I are considering a small egg, for camping and whatever. So, if we want go camping, with a bunch of people, how many people can I plan to feed?[p]Thanks

    Qbabe's husband,
    Well, the small has a 13" grill, so draw out a 13" circle and see what you think you can get on it. You say you're going camping with a "bunch" of people . . . you might be able to feed them all hot dogs or chicken wings in a single cook on a small. You can do 4 or 5 medium size steaks or chops, maybe 6 in pinch, same with hamburgers, but the ones out near the edge will cook slower than those in the middle. However, you can do a lot more on a small than on a mini, so if you feel that it is protable enough for you, the small is the way to go, imho.
