2 part question How long have you had your egg and how long have you actually been eggin? I have had my Large about 6yrs but have only really been enjoying it for the 2yrs and even moreso in the last 8months or so. I did burgers, steaks and chickens before and one low and slow. Now after coming here it has become an addiction. I read and see all the cool cooks and it has pushed me to learn what the EGG is all about.

    Christmas 2010 for ownership, but I've been egging on my buddies egg since 2008.  I learned a lot before I acquired my large from cooking at his place. Medium December 2012, Small March 2013.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    June 2010 and I have also been egging pretty regularly since I got it. 

    I have met at least a few people that have eggs and rarely use them.  Often it seems people think the egg is just for smoking butts and don't realize how good things like burgers, steak, chicken are on the egg.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    It will be a year in September, I have an XL. Went from a gasser to an XL. I have learned more about cooking BBQ in the last 8 months than I learned in the 10 years with the gasser.

    Cook probably 1 night out of most weeks and usually 2 to 3 over the weekends. I usually make enough that the nights I'm not cooking, I am eating leftovers...

    Need to get a separate freezer :)

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    It's cool to see this thread resurface. Since this was posted I have added a small to the family and averaging about 4-5 egg events a week.
