    Very nice. Remember to pull it don't push it. It looks like it may be top heavy. Great looking steak.

    Dave, I just posed the below questions to bill & I'd like your spin to:

    "bill, regarding the mini, although I have never seen one in person, from the pictures I have seen on the forum, it looks pretty small. I was wondering how you even fit large chunks of lump into that little fella (or do you just put in the smaller chunks), what (for example) you can fit on the grid, given its size, is your food only a few inches from the burning lump, & finally, given your experience would you recommend a mini or would you go with a small as a second egg?"

    I love all my eggs
    1st large and it still the standard to measure all from ( Very Very Stable )up tp 30 hrs at 225. If i could only have one this is the one I would have

    2nd small I thought it was and is the best 2nd egg

    3rd now the mini these are so cool !! I have it at 225 right now to see how long you can go maybe not the best slow cooker smoker but am going to try ,
    But burger dogs bratt steaks ect ect still the most over looked EGG

    For me the mini is NOT THE FIRST egg a person should get. I love my LBGE but with 90% of our cooks it is the mini for 2 or 3 people. I have made a plate setter out of a 2 for 9.00 pizza stone from I use 3 slot shields from a computer case. I am on the look for long s hooks so I can get the stone a little lower.
    The other stone is for 9 inch personal pizza and small round bread or biscuits. I get off of work have the mini at temp in 15 minutes and 30 min at most later dinner is ready with a hadful of lump used.
    I have done 4lb butts and whole beer can chicken on the mini. TYhe chicken howto is at freds BBQ site. The butt did take a refill of lump at the 3.5 hour level.

    Qutoe ""bill, regarding the mini, although I have never seen one in person, from the pictures I have seen on the forum, it looks pretty small.:"

    Hence the name Mini - absolutely love mine and use it as much as any of the other eggs and way more than the med & small put together.

    A small would be my choice for a second egg. But I would not give up my mini for anything. we use it A LOT and will be taking it to FL this winter to keep our med down there company.
