Hey Julie; my husband was looking at eggs today at the local dealer. He thinks a mini is way too small and wouldn't even do two steaks. You have a mini right-that's what you use most of the time ? I can't convince him.

    Thank you for the pics! I absolutely can't believe I'm even considering another--I've only had my large three weeks! Hmmm...that mileage check is right around the corner! haha :P

    Thanks Julie! I think the mini would be very cool! I'm jealous of all the 'fest talk! I want to go to one now and they're all so far away! Maybe next year...we'll plan ahead! ;)

    I cook on it all the time, can't you tell??? It holds enough lump to go at least 4 hours on 400 degrees. I usually just keep putting more and more food on til the fire goes out.

    You will love the mini.

    Faith

  • I think if you were a single guy the biggest question you need to ask a potential date is if she can cook on a mini!!! You gals are great!!! :laugh:
