OT Whats your record

Awhile back I had read where somebody had cooked on there egg for the 10th consecutive night.  I was impressed because my record is only 5.  What's your record?

    Didn't see that thread, but my record got broken due to a funeral we had to attend, but my unplanned run was 11 nights and then we were gone on the 12 th night, but upon returning I egged for 5 more nights after that!

    My record is only 5 nights in a row. Not bad considering my record for being home without traveling for work is only about 9 nights.

    273 days...then our first child was born...oh wait, I misunderstood the question.


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

    I made it a couple of days once. Then I visited my Mom in the hospital, and the girl next to her was getting a sponge bath, and well...

    i average a 3day straight every week. the firehouse keeps it from being more. I sometimes egg food for 3-4 days in one night so that hits the bottom number as well

    To be honest I think I'm at 10 or further. In Texas it gets so hot I don't fire up the stove at all and cook egg only.

    That was me. The streak only ended due to a medical procedure that precluded me from eating for a couple days. 10 is by far my longest streak.

    Wow. I have no idea really! By the end of the competition season, it sometimes seems like 200 days straight. But really hard to say. I'm thinking I've hit the 5 day in a row mark a few times. 
    Sure is a fun question. Wish I knew the answer!

    Impressive! I'm 3 for sure, 4 at best. We are pretty busy, but there may have been a Thursday-Sunday at some point.

    I cook on it every night during the summer. Up here that means three weeks.

    I cook almost every meal on one of the Eggs.  I would not be surprised at having gone 3 or 4 weeks straight.

  • Got my Egg last saturday, cooked on it 5 days in a row...going on vacation starting tomorrow so i'll definitely be ready to cook on it again when i get back in a week!
  • BOWHUNRBOWHUNR Posts: 1,479
    Mine was 13 days and or nights last summer.  I had the mini at my office so some of the cooks were just simple lunch items like brats, etc.  Best I've done since is maybe 4-5 in a row, but warm weather is on the way! :-bd

    It's not impressive, but I'm pretty sure my record is one.  I don't recall ever cooking on it two nights in a row.  It's possible that maybe I did twice in one weekend, but my memory isn't good enough to state it as a fact.

    I think i did a week while my wife was out of town.  It's hard to do so many consecutive nights, because I end up with so many leftovers!

    A lot of meals have leftovers so 3 or 4 days in a row is about it.
