How Many Eggheads also have a Gas Grill?

If you have one, do you still use it? I have a LBGE and use it all the time. My FireMagic gas grill use is WAY down since I got the Egg. I think I want a Mini but do I really need it since I would be using it only to grill things. 

Thanks,

    Perhaps the question goes along the lines of "How many had a gasser?"  Guilty-went from weber charcoal to the gasser after SWMBO bought it over my objections-"When I'm too old for charcoal then I'll go to the gas grill".  I didn't get a vote-and danced with the two for too many years-wanted to get into smoking foods and went cheap-i.e. water/gasser.  Too much work-landed with the BGE.  Best move I ever made in the cooking realm :)

  • I haven't gotten rid of my old grills yet.  I have a Weber kettle with a Smokenator that gets very little use, a Weber Silver gasser, that gets no use and my Dad's Weber gasser that Wilma uses from time to time.  Prolly should thin out the herd this year.

    I still have my four burner with two infrared burner stainless.  I use it to do grilled veggies when i don't have room on my large egg.  I have also used it a few times to re-heat large numbers of pork butts for big parties..

    I still do. When I want to cook 150 wings at once, it comes in handy. Otherwise it's useless now.

    My old 4 burner gasser serves as a staging area for my adjustable rig and other grates when they aren't in the eggs. Hasn't been on once since I got my large

    I have a gas grill that Ive had for 10 years or more.  I still use it quite often.  Its a nice backup for quick meals.  I prefer to cook on my egg, but dont always have the time.  If my gas grill broke or wore out, I would replace it with another.

    I still have my gas grill. I don't use it that often, but I'll occasionally use it for beer brats. I'm a little too protective of my XL Egg.  I won't use it in the rain, so I use the gasser when the weather is nasty and I don't want to subject my Egg to it.
    I would prefer to use nothing but my Egg, but the gasser provides a nice option if the situation arises.

    I still have a six burner that is used to season woks & CI cookware. I use the side burner for starting a chimney on occasion. Mostly use it for storage but really need to clean it up, sell it, and work on a cooking area with more storage & seating. The Mini & Small Eggs killed my usage of the gasser for quick cooks.

    Still have a weber kettle, summit, and Q. The Q is going on Craiglist soon. I still like having the summit for hot dogs, toasting buns, veggies, etc. I also use it for my Griddle Q, which doesn't fit on my LBGE. My dilemma with the gasser though is it needs the burners and V bars replaced. Not an inconsequential expense.

    That's what happened to me.  Needed the hose blown out and new burners, just told the wife it was broke and took the lazy way out buying a $700 egg instead of 75$ burners.

    Still have mine and it had been so long since I took cover off I looked at it the other day. There was a hole in the cover from squirrels I am assuming. Then there was an old bird nest inside the hole of the cover on top of the side table. Been two years since I have even taken cover off. Thinking about cutting the legs off of it and mounting it on my back porch where a built in charcoal grill resides right now.

    I use mine to store extra grates and equipment, until I make a nice table seemed like a good use for the gasser. As far as cooking on it, only once since October when I got my large egg. It might disappear next yard sale because it is a pretty expensive storage unit at this point

    I have a Weber that I love and still use. I tend to only use it during the week when the wife gives me cooking duty with a short turn around.

    I still have mine but I haven't used it since I got the egg.  I'm hard-pressed to imagine what I'd use it for, except for the occasional cook-out where I need to cook up a lot of stuff quickly.

    So.... if I have a gasser for grilling, any need for a Mini if all I would use it for would be for "high and fast cooks"?   

    Ha ha ....still hope to win a Mini at Salado!, no matter what!
