Small or Mini????

edited 8:56AM in EggHead Forum
I am considering adding a smaller EGG to use alongside my LARGE. Which would be the best bet, the small or mini?[p]Thanks

    T-Bone,[p]The small is probably a better choice, but production of the mini may be stopped (and its great for travel ... fits in a fanny pack)!![p]Smokey

    T-Bone, I had the large and my wife went out and bought me the Mini (bless her heart)amd I opted to return it for the small. I don't regret it as I think it is a little more versatile than the mini. The small wouldn't travel that hard if that's an option you are looking at but what the hey get one now and then the other later, you'll enjoy them both I'm sure.

    Smokey, the small is my choice also if around the house. My mini is my traveling companion....gosh, I would starve with out it..:-)
    Whats the medical terminology..first requirement for life support is the BGE, then water, and then stuff for the BGE's! :-)
    I think...not sure..!!

    Char-Woody,[p]maybe the answer is to get BOTH ... you just to be on the safe side![p]Smokey

    I have a large and a small. If I was to do it again it might be a large and a medium, but not a mini.
    The small fits with ease in my trunk with plenty of room to spare.

    T-Bone,Don't know how I would live without my mini. If you or cooking for 1 or 2 it is great, travels well, and you can get 4 to 6 months out of a bag of lump. Use it for (2)steaks, (3) hamburgers,(8) hot dogs,(2) pork chops, etc. Haven't tried any slow type cooking... to much fun heating to 700deg. and throwing on the steaks.
