Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I've had a medium Egg for several years now and love it. I often only throw a single steak on and was wondering if the Mini produces the same results as it't bigger brothers.[p]If not should I buy a small Egg insted ?[p]Doug

    <p />Doug,[p]I absolutely LOVE my Mini. I also have a Small and Medium and the Mini BY FAR gets used the most. It is a steak cooking machine, let me tell you. And, it's ultra portable. You will absolutely love it.[p]I frequently cook pork chops, steaks, sausage, bananas, mushrooms, and anything that likes hot & fast cooking. I've also seen pics posted by YB where he stacked two levels of hot wings on his.[p]Click on the link below to see more cooks I've done, several of which feature Ms. Mini herself.[p]It's a powerful little cooker. Get one![p]TRex

    Doug,[p]The mini will produce the same great results on a steak as a medium. Actually, I think the mini does a better job on steaks. They are cooked much closer to the coals. I have a medium as well and bought a mini about two years ago for the same reasons you list. Its a great size for camping (which is where it comes in most handy for me) but if you plan to cook for a few friends as well, the majority of the folks here would say to go to the small. [p]I've been able to cook two N.Y. strip steaks, four hamburgers, eight brats, ten ABTS on my mini. However, you really have to watch your food 'cause hot spots develop very quickly. [p]Mac

    <p />Doug, the same, if not better for steaks and chops

    Doug,[p]For "T-Rex-ing" a steak, Miss Mini will heat up much faster, and also cool down (to the "dwell" temperature) much faster.[p]The Mini is one great steak-searing-machine.[p]BOB
