Did You Ever Think You Would

After getting your first Egg, did you ever think you would ever own more then one Egg at that time. I didn't ever think that. I kept asking my self why are these people buying more then one Egg.

Now I am a proud owner of three Eggs and use all three. Maybe one more in the future, how about you, how many Eggs do you have and are adding anymore in the future.

    I worked hard at getting my first Egg. I sort of begged for 6 months before I got my large. Then less than a year after I got my large Mint Tulip said we should get a small. Then less than a year later we got a 3 for us
    large, small, mini and we are all happy campers...

    Started out with a large.....then, added a small.....then, added a mini.......then, added a large.......then, added a large.....I haven't been adding any lately! 5 eggs will pretty much get me through most dinner parties!! :woohoo: :woohoo:

    I was pretty sure when I got my large that a small would be in the near future...At present....1 XL, 1 large, 2 small, 1 mini, 1 business card egg, and 1 that would be....that many. :) :) :laugh: Comfortably in the Tiki bar...

    I've got 4, mini to lg. I'm single so don't think I can use the big guy. :laugh:

    Have a great week, :blink:
  • No I did not. Like many I started with a large then added the "have to have" small and then came the necessary mini. I would not part with any of them

    Which explains why the XL isn't pictured.. :)

    I am continually amazed at the no. of multiple egg owners and the grilling areas folks use to cook at.

    I started with a medium and now have a mini. Don't think I'll be adding any more in the short term. If I had it do all over again I'd start with the large - you know more toys for the big boy. But I'm happy with the medium given it's mainly my wife and me.

    LOL NEVER!! I hounded Neil so long to get the Large... I figured that would do forever. part of why I thought it had to be a large when we got it why would you ever need another one??. then we got a small for camping. then a med... hauled the large to FL for the winter and decided we needed AN egg down there and got a med. came home and got a mini in NH at that fest.
    adopted a large in FL and then got a mini at Ocala. LOL so 7 between the Florida house and Maine house.
    2 larges, 2 meds, 1 small and 2 minis. sick we are just sick. :sick:
    BUT and a huge BUT here. I never dreamed all that would come with it. :blush: I count many people as "friends" some I have never even met granted, but they have added so much to our life. who woulda thunk it ????
    I fondled the XL in NH hard... but just did not connect with it. LOL I was over looking at it 5-6 times and nope decided it was just not necessary....yet....

    I found out my eyes was always bigger than my needs. I contemplated between the large and xl. Can't beat the surface area of the xl for doing a lot of burgers and steaks for a party, but reality set in. How often do I cook that much food at the same time. It is rare that I every loaded up my gasser or kettle with that much food. For me, the large was perfectly adequate and a perfect cooker.

    Next I contemplated between a small and mini. Figured the small would be great for small quick cooks using less lump. Small could also be more flexible than mini. Again, reality set in. How often would my needs would require two smokers...not often. Went on a mini hunt. Got the mini and it is perfectly adequate and a perfect cooker for small quick cooks using very little lump.

    After the large I thought multiple egg people were just weird. I now have the large, small and just added the medium so I will have more grill space at the lake this next week.

    Will try and take some pics and post when I get back.

    Good morning all,
    I got my first LG at the FL fest and on the way home I ask the wife what size we should get next? :)
    Got medium (Suitcase as she travels) the next year again at the FL fest.
    Last year at the FL fest got a mini (Piglet)
    I had spent a lot of time on the forum before I decided to get the large and knew then that one egg would not be enough.
    I’m looking for a small so if ya know where I can get one used let me know!!!! :)

    After lurking on this board for a good year or two before my purchase I just purchased a large and a medium at the same time :woohoo: :woohoo: . Now I am thinking of adding a Mini. Where does it end? :whistle:
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!
  • when i bought my large egg , i thought it would be all the egg i could ever need. then a year later i made my mind up that i needed more!! so i finally broke down and got the xl egg. and will never look back.( maybe another in the future??? )
  • I was hesitant about getting the large to begin with. Now I have 3 large & one small. Between Fla Grilling girl and Vidalia1 that mini looks like a must have :laugh:

    My wife thought when she bought the XL for me,I would be allset(wrong)I found a large on Craig'S list for 299$ could not pass it up.Plan on getting a med for the duck club,gonna pass that off at my broyhers house for now.


  • BacchusBacchus Posts: 6,019
    My orinal plan was to get a medium and keep my gasser. Ended up buying the large, trashing the gasser, and adding a small.

    Hi, this is my first post here. I'm working on getting an Egg at the Denver Eggfest later this month. PB Mike, where's the table from that you have your LBGE in? I could cobble together a table if I do happen to get an Egg, but that looks like a good alternative to the more expensive ones and/or something that I'd make.
    Thanks, I'm looking forward to joining the Egg-owners here.
  • yeah mike, i was in the same boat as you....had my first large. . .immediately started plotting how to explain to my wife i needed a second one and shortly after had her 'permission' to get my small. ...then a year or so later when i got her 'permission' to go to atlanta for eggtoberfest for the first time she really surprised me when she said, "why don't you go ahead and buy another egg while you are down there and they have those good discounts you were telling me about" after i picked myself up off the floor, i got my third one ....

    so i have 2 larges and a small, i also use all three and i'm a happy guy!!!
  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    Don't forget about your mini. -RP
  • I cannot believe that I didn't think of using my small nest as a stand for my mini!!! That is a great idea!!!

    All I did was have my dealer make a second trip. Bought my second large about 2 weeks later. Added a small and mini since.

    I have 2, a large and a medium and use both all the time. If I add another, will be a mini, but that will be in the distant future. I use my medium as a travel egg, so in the future when I get tired of lugging around that, maybe will get a mini.
