I"ve been thinking of a name for my egg with no success, I asked the wife to name it and she gave me that jealous look and walked off. She ain"t jealous when it"s time to eat, she be the first one to the table. So I was wondering do you have a name for your egg and if so who named it? I may let my kids name her. Thanks for your input...Peace...


  • Haha to funny about your wife! I named my egg Boomer, seeing as I'm an Egghead-Sooner!!!

    Because the Chicken Ranch has a long story to tell and a reputation to live up to, it seemed only right that the staff have alias's appropriate to their status and duties here.

    My three 'working girls' are Lily Large, Shirley Small and Maggie Mini. Each has special talents and desireability, and are frequently dressed up with exotic accessoreies to accommodate the needs of customers. They do put on a show, especially when all are working at the same time.

    The Chicken Ranch is a fun place when the 'Girls Working' light is lit.

  • XL - laissez le bon temps rouler (french for let the good times roll)
    Small - Geaux Tigers (Tiger fan)
    Mini - Lagniappe (french for something extra - dealer comped the mini :) )

    That look wasn't jealousy, it was incredulity. As in, "It's a GRILL! You're going to name a grill?!" :blink:

    I call mine the eggs. B) :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • Non. Laissez les bons temps rouler is NOT French. It is pure Cajun and it is how it would be said in English, except for French words being substituted ... typical of Cajun. The French would say "que la fête commence".

    To me, that is part of the charm of how the Cajuns speak.

    Ben and Jen. The medium has no name. I guess it's name is "An Egg With No Name".

    Morning sirlancealot:

    The two Large Eggs are "Bert" & "Ernie" (nicknames I used with my two sons), the Mini Egg is "Olive" (because my wife thought it looked like an olive) and the Small Egg hasn't gotten a formal name, but we are leaning toward "SweetPea" (I guess to keep with the "Popeye" thing).

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it (for now). ;) :laugh:

    Have a GREAT day!

    Found this large Imperial Kamado in an estate sale last year for a VERY good price. Needed some work to clean up, but works fine under 400F.



    Acquired a small at the Fl '06 fest when the distributor's truck backed into my vehicle. Not much damage,but they insisted on a small for compensation.

  • call me killjoy if you want, but i call the large egg "the large egg" and the small "the small"

    don't understand naming them, but that's just me. :laugh:

    heck, as a kid growing up we had a series of cats each referred to as 'the cat'.
  • CobraCobra Posts: 110
    Im glad Im not the only one that plays with the nonsense of naming inanimate things.

    We have named our eggs also, the Xl is Bradley, and the Large is Lola...Bradley(Brad) and Lola Pit. ;) My wife came up with the Pit part and I thought it was quite entertaining.
  • "incredulity" eh? excellent. what with "unctuous" being bandied about the other day, this place is becoming like a word-a-day calendar.

    as for not naming the eggs, maybe it's a New England thing?
  • MickeyMickey Posts: 18,644
    Being the quick thinker I am: The large, small, and mini are all named -- MICKEY
    Found LawnRanger call write and spell MICKEY very well so all works out (and I can remember the name of each egg).....

    This mini is now the new style latch
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • My XL is named Sputnik. My wife is not pleased with this and accuses me of being a commie.
  • Linda large and Lilly large. AKA "The Ladies".

    must be a newengland thing, i call my brothers kid the boy :laugh: i think it irks his mother :laugh: my lobster boat has direct amends written on it from the previous owner. never changed it, call it the lobster boat, found out later the name has something to do with AA, explains why everyone comes over to look at it and spill coffee on it
  • Humpty is what we call her when speaking about her, Honey is what I call her when speaking to her. . . .

  • You mean the Minnie is named Mickey ? She's going to need counseling. :ohmy:

    My first large is still without name. I have called the second one I recently bought the Dr Bob memorial Q in honour of my Dad who passed away earlier this year.



    Charles is a mischevious feline who always has something cooking

  • that's just goofy
  • mcdrawmcdraw Posts: 89
    My kids call the XL the "BGT" (big green turd). They love the pulled pork that comes off it.
  • like a boat named "one day at a time" with bud empties rolling around in it... :laugh:

    until i got married, my father referred to each of my girlfriends as "whats-her-name"
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 22,716
    my last girlfriend i called hun, not as in honey, more as in attila :laugh: should i go name all my fishing rods now, that could take a while
  • Kept it simple and went with 'Humpty'!
