So last night I have 2 steaks goning on the egg, and fired up the gasser for some of that great roasted couliflower. Go to check on the cauliflower and I burp the gasser.

    Not here. No longer have a gasser. you maybe in the minority here still having one. I did, however, forget to burp the Egg tonight. That's ok, didn't need that arm or knuckle hair anyway.

    Never owned a gasser in my whole life.  Did do the Webber thing.

    I'm more willing to forgive the gasser than I am cauliflower.   >:P

  • Threw my gasser away about a month after having the egg


  • I like cauliflower, but they don't like me.  I promised Wilma I wouldn't eat it anymore as I pollute the local atmosphere pretty good when I do.  :-&

  • My gasser serves one purpose...I use the side burner to light a chimney for the Egg. It actually comes in handy...

    I've only had my egg about 3 months. Went to my grill shop to get parts for my gas grill. He had the egg on sale so I gave myself an anniversary present. I'll keep my gasser. PGS, 16 years old and looks should last 16 more. Especially since I don't use it.

    Haven't used the gasser since I got my first egg.  Took it off the deck when I brought home the 2nd egg.  Sitting in the garage covered and lonely.  Will sell in the spring.

    Yes, I have burped my gasser. Good habit. 
    Bought my egg to replace the aging Weber, but kept the 10 year old Broil King. It is a great warming oven, or as some here have noted, while the egg is doing the meat entree the gasser is on tater and veggie duty. The side burner is a dream to saute and stir fry on. If it is not helping with a cook, it is the storage unit for (hot or cold) plate setter, extra grids etc...
    I love my egg, but the gasser still has a place in the "cook house".

  • Actually still have mine and occasionally use. With kid's practices and activities, don't always have time to fire up the Egg. And yes, I do "burp" it when I open the lid. Just habit I guess.

    I use my Egg most of the time. 

    Still have my gasser on the patio and use it.   I love brats, especially during football season.  So I use it mostly for beer brats.

  • I still have a gasser.  It's 3 years old and never been used!   But for an outdoor kitchen it is not complete without one.
  • My JennAir is an excellent compliment to my egg. I wouldn't want to be without it. However, I can't recall ever burping the JA. When I do, I'm sure I'll get a chuckle

    I'm not a snob (Eggers have this reputation). I still use my Weber gasser and Weber kettle. Love them like I love my 2 Eggs.
