When you go camping..which size egg do you take? The Small or the mini?

    Campin' eggers use both.

    I chose the small.  More versatile and a smokey joe is much cheaper than a mini.

    Cannot justify the almost $400 price tag on a 10" direct grill.  I'm a white trash egger from the hood though. lol 

    Build your own transporting table for the small and you are set.

    Secure to tailgate or picnic table with a braided Kryptonite cable and padlock for a little sense of security when away from the campground... won't deter the determined.

    $400 ? wow, I was at my local dealer today and they had minis in nest/stand for $199. I was looking for a small but they don't stock them.

    I camp several times a year and since buying my large I've thought a mini or small for camping. Just trying o convince myself worth cost over a smokey joe by weber considering how often I'd use and what I could spend the diff on. But it is tempting.
    Boom

    Here are pics of the table in action (super nice Canadian eggers in the first pic). 

    3/4" birch, 2x4s, exterior gloss paint, and a couple of split split firebricks.

     

    FOF,

    At home, the small has become my "go to" egg.

    A large/small combo is hard to beat.
