    Trust me you can't go wrong.

    I am currently using a small and for about a month or so I get to use a Large and the increase in size is so welcome in every way. 

    Sure the large to XL is not as big of a change from a small to a large, but I still think you should jump to an XL if given the chance!!.

    Depends. Do you NEED an XL? If I had that opportunity, I would probably pass. My large is more than enough FOR WHAT I COOK (and how much). And I know how it cooks.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I'd say go for it, I have a large and just purchased this weekend an xl! I've only had my large for a few months, is their a rehab for eggheads? I'm addicted!

    Other issues to consider swapping with neighbor or relative or what? Giving up a warranty on your large? Getting a new warranty with the XL? And as others questioned - do you need it?

    Yes. I enjoy the versatility. You don't have to fill the fire box to the fire ring to achieve 8 to 10 hour cooks. I just did 2 3# chuck roasts yesterday. Used 2 fire bricks to reduce the amount of lump. Sure you can "filler up" & reuse I burned lump. I made a reducing ring also. All eggs are versital, true. If you have the need, do it. image
