2nd baby

edited 1:02AM in EggHead Forum
Last year, I received a Large BGE for Father's day. I'm thinking of dropping a hint (or several) to my wife that it needs a sibling. I want a 2nd egg so that I could 1) cook for smaller groups of 3-6 people, and 2) to cook things that need different cooking temperatures at the same time.[p]The big I need a medium or will a small BGE do the trick? [p]Related question...should I do my slow cooks on the new arrival or is a Large best suited for slow cooks like briskets?[p]A big thanks to everyone on the forum that has made our first year very enjoyable!

    Al fom SLC,[p] My vote is go for the small. While Lo 'n' slow can be done on the small it will easier on the large.

    What is the advantage of a small over a medium?
  • Al fom SLC,
    I would go with another large I am single and I have two large you can cook two differt things on each one at the same time. You will probally use the same amount of lump in a small that you do with a large if you are not doing really hot sears. I really just love my two larges

    I have a small and a Large. I love my small and use it for 70% of my cooks. The large is awesome too but I use less lump this way. It is fun to have two eggs going at the same time too. Sometimes I will do appetizers on the small and entree on Large. You can put a lot of food on the small. I use the Grate Mates to create another cooking level. We are a family of 4 and cook on the small about 2-3 nights per week.[p]
