New egg decision?

We have decided to get another egg and had settled on a small ( we already have a large) until I talked to my dealer today. He can order me a small with a nest and have it in a week . Then he brought up that he has a new medium in stock for the old pricing. The only difference is the grate (I'm ordering a CI grate anyways) and the locking casters. The medium will be $15.00 less than the small. Not sure what would be best. :S

    If you don't need a travel Egg and burning a little extra lump is not a big deal the Medium sounds very good.
    Thank you,

    I have a lg/md combo and love it. As stated already, if you need a traveling egg, the small might be a better choice.

    Get the medium, then a mini for travel later.

    I have a Large and Medium combo and it has ben great. I recently purchased a mini and I have completed my set. You won't go wrong with the medium. Don't pass it up.

    The medium is a lot more versatile than the small. Locking casters are cheap at places like Fastenal.

    The small cooks a lot bigger than you'd think and it travels extremely well. That said, if you don't plan on taking it with you from time to time, then the medium would be the way to go.
  • For the price and extra room, I'd go for the medium over the small. I have a medium as my only BGE and am very happy with it. Went to look at the small and saw the medium next to it. That made up my mind which one I would go with.

    I guess it will be the medium :woohoo:. There were several reasons that we decided to add another egg.The first was the ability to cook multiple things at the same time that called for different cooking temps, but needed to be served at the same time. Another reason was (and this is a big one) my wife is traveling more for work, so I don't want to fire up the large to cook dinner for just me. If I find that the medium is still too big for cooking for one I will look into a mini. Thanks for all the help.

    I'll put this out there and I don't know if it would suit your needs but, IMHO, the best combo is large large. If you look at the price of additional stuff, you can justify it.

    I don't need another large. I need something smaller I can cook on when the wife is out of town and to use for side dish cooks. Looking at what a small or the medium is going to cost me its not far off what I paid for my large in October. Dealer quoted me $655. for new small and $640. for leftover medium (both are with nest). I paid $710. in Atlanta and that included 2 tickets into the fest. :pinch:

    I've got the large/med combo. The medium is very versitle...I use it more than the large! OTOH, I really want a small too :whistle: !

    I have a med and mini and love the versatility of two eggs, often using both at the same time. I'd go with your large and a new small. The $15 savings is minimal. And you can take it with you. Or else, a mini is in your future and they are close to $400. Can't have too much of a good thing.
