Small Green Egg

edited 5:59AM in EggHead Forum
What kind of cooking do you do in a small egg. I'm thinking about adding a second egg to my family and can't decide whether to go with a big, medium or small. The small is intriguing for burgers and such for my wife and I alone. Is it good for salmon or other fish?[p]Any comments will be appreciated.[p]pastor_chuck

    Just got mine a couple weeks ago and only used it a few times. I think once I'm not cooking large quantities, it will be used more and more. Had 2 ducks on the large today; did the veggies on the small. Used the small for lunch yesterday.
    If it's just the two of you, I'd suggest the small.

    pastor_chuck,[p]You say a second egg. If you are thinking of a big, medium, or small, am I correct in assuming your current egg is a mini?[p]Do you ever cook for groups larger than 2-3? Will you ever want to do a turkey? I love my small egg, but there are some things you just can't do on it. Tomorrow's enormous brisket is one of them! What do you figure you'll be doing on it and make the decision from there.[p]I have a large, small, AND mini, by the way. The small is the one used 75-80% of the time.[p]mShark

    <p />pastor_chuck,[p]Welcome to the forum![p]The small Egg is a handy piece to have and very versatile with a little creativity. I have all Egg sizes but use the small most of the time as others have stated.[p]It's an excellent high temp grill due to the close proximity of the grid to the coals. I found (thanks YB) that a replacement 14" cooking grid from the Weber "Smoky Joe" mini kettle (Lowes, Home Depot, etc) fits perfectly when raised up on 4" SS bolts as pictured. This not only provides an extra level for additional food, but alters the cooking characteristics to be more like little Humpty's bigger brothers when using only the upper level.[p]Along with grilling, I have smoked small hams, salmon filets and a rack or two of ribs when cut in half.

    My setup will also accept a 12" pizza stone for small pizzas and bread baking.[p]K~G
