Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Does size realy matter?

I've been planning to buy an Egg for some time now, and this year's tax return is making it possible :) I'd always looked at the large model and assumed that's what we'd get, but now I'm wondering if the medium would make more sense. We're down to a household of two, but we grill a lot, and we tend to grill big stuff fairly often. We have folks over frequently (and I hear that ramps up after the Egg comes home). I want to be able to do two Boston Butts at a time, and I'd like to do ribs for 8 in one batch.

The difference in cost is not of too much concern - my bigger issue is the length of time it takes to get to cooking temp, and how the two sizes compare with regards to the volume of charcoal it takes per firing-up.

Many thanks to any of you who'd care to share your opinions and advice (and I hear that Eggheads tend to be an opinionated bunch...)
