I use my egg at least 6 nights/week. What about everyone else?

    6 my wife recently made the comment "you know, we have a stove and on oven and they both work". I ignored her.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    2-3 but some times less. I wish it were more but I am not always cooking egg worth lighting meals.

    I`m a few months green and I do 4 to 5 times.  Do mornings count?

    Lucky to get two.

    Last night I found three hot dogs in the fridge and a can of chili. Fired up the lump that was left in the small. Grilled the dogs and buns. Have to admit it was worth lighting the egg.

    2-3. Hopefully when I get a mini or small that will jump to 5-6.

    2 or 3 times a week but sometimes I will do that many cooks on Saturday and Sunday.

    3-4 times per week on average.

    Friday nights are Pizza night.

    Sunday night is steak night.

    This past week I also got in steak and mushroom quesidillas (sic) and a brisket.

    Getting ready to put on a 9 lb butt for pulled pork sandwhiches on Thursday.

    I average 5 cooks a week. It would be more if I didn't work late through the week.

    @ Gato. My kids ask for hot dogs every saturday for lunch. We smoke with cherry and they taste great.

    Couple of times a week - if the weather is good.   Lit on Friday evening, did a brisket over night which came off at 3 or so.   Sausage for an hour or so.   Poppers for 30-45 minutes.   Left it burning during dinner.   Then pineapple for dessert.   1 lighting - 24 or so hours of cooking.

    Sunday night was Pizza.

    My 14 year old daughter is in competitive dance so we don't eat till late. Probably 5 nights a week on average. I'll do pasta sauce, chili, soups and stews on the egg as well.

    Every single night, and usually a couple of noon times.  Since last December I have cooked on the BGEs every night except 3 or 4 until this week, when I needed to travel out of state.  I am feeling withdrawal.

    Every night.  The only time we go out for food is for lunch on the weekends.  I had to be out of town for a couple of days and went into withdrawals.

    Same for me, 2-3 times. I live alone and can eat just so much so I bring in some left-overs so I can grill more often

    2-3 right now, I was gone for a race last weekend and was working on the car on a Saturday night and was wishing I had a mini with me. I think our frozen Hot Pockets made in the microwave would of been incredible on the mini.

    Hot Pockets on a mini? hmmmmm......... That may just be decent.

    Yep, at the races we live off hot pockets and pop tarts, I think I need to spice up our food intake.

    1st attempt from iPhone. thought you would enjoy the hot pocket shirt. We got this outside a Jim Gaffigan show that we saw. He does that not pockets bit and the fine folks from hot pockets had abgood sense of humor and were giving out shirts and hot pockets. Good times.

    Avg 4-5/week.  Always 2 nights of chicken, usually 2 nights of beef, and unfortunately only 1 night of pork.  I need to show more love to the pork.

    I have only had my LBGE a little over a week and have used it 4 times so far.  Burgers twice, and two chickens.  I have some bread dough waiting and this weekend is beef weekend; Tri Tip and steaks.  Maybe a pizza thrown in their as well.  :p

    When I got the Egg about 8 months ago,  I used it almost every night and did so for a couple months.  Problem was,  I was starting to take the shape of an egg.  Now,  I use it on weekends,  but have egged food every evening.  I usually do some sort of combination of cooks (chicken, pork, beef, fish) over the weekend,  make decent sized portions and Vacuum seal them.  Then just pop them in the microwave during the week.  Shed 35 so far,  but still enjoy my egg.
