My wife and I have been renting a villa in Florida for the month of Feb. and if I want to grill, I have to use their gasser. It is handy to be ready to cook in 5 min. but I can't control the flames and have burnt some burgers and steaks plus the fact that you don't get that good charcoal flavor. Makes you appreciate the Egg. Can't wait to get home to use the Egg but will miss the nice weather! I guess you can't have it all!
