How Often Do You Egg?

    Close to daily, and if I don't it is usually because we are eating leftovers.

  • About 4-5 nights a week. Love making beer can chicken and pizza during the week and ribs and roasts on the weekend. Cheers
    In the Pacific Northwest We cook outside! Year round! 
  • Always on the weekend plus a couple during the week.
  • Usually 2 - 3 times, do lots of chicken boobs to have meals at work, steak or pork chops on the weekends, spatchcock chicken is my favorite.

    2-3 times here.  Probably be more in the 3-5 times group if the kids don't have activities
    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. 
  • I go probably 2-3 times a week…much more now since the weather here in Florida has cooled down a bit, much more pleasant out on the pool deck smoking and grilling when its 60-70 degrees instead of a 95 degree day….

    Average 3.6 times a week over the past two years (I am anal about keeping records). Grandkids pick up from school and delivery to their events means I can't be home all the time to mind the fire.

    Every day.  Missed less than 30 days since March 6th, 2012, the day I got my first egg.  Even when I use the sous vide, I sear on the egg.  SWMBO had no issue with me getting my second XL after the first 3 months of doing all the cooking.

    For an Egger, you're normal. But realize that for most people, going to a drive thru for a meal, or tossing something into the 'wave is normal.

    Myself, I've slacked off somewhat over the past 6 - 9 months. Haven't done a really interesting cook for some time. Just basics. Burgers, sausages, chix pcs, ribs, etc. Guess its time to challenge myself yet again w. a brisket.

    Average 3 times a week. No great specialty, burgers, spatchcock, pork chops, steak, etc.
