I have two. one in Fl and one in ME. and they are used a lot. how many on here have one? they really seem to have become quite popular for something I pegged as a "toy" and got for fun plus it was a great deal at the time on the first one. I really thought Neil would use it for hot dogs for lunch and that was it. the FL one we got cause we missed the one in Maine so bad and just could not believe how much we used it. I know Faith works her's hard and is the the Queen of the minis, and Kim has an eggcessory named after him :whistle: well of to do the gaskets, nice day again today and they need them bad LOL

    We have owned one for a couple years, or so. We use it for about half our cooks. Last I heard, I think Sooner Chris had about talked himself into one.

    Had my mini a little over a month now. Good news is I got thru the burnt gasket thing quickly on the first high temp cook. New nomex installed - didn't miss a beat.

    Was just getting used to cooking on it when I departed for vac. Fatman (med) and Bobin (mini) are my dynamic duo, I miss cooking on them and I'm going thru egg withdrawl :( .

    Got one shortly after the large and small. It's my goto steak machine.

    I have one to go with my L,M & S. :)

    me .. have had mine for 3 years... use it as much as the large or more .. especailly in the summmer. does a lot more than steaks and burgers
  • Just got one a couple weeks's great. I bought an 8" cast iron skillet & cut the handle off to use on the Mini (already had a 4" skillet that fit inside, handle & all). Ordered the 8" pizza stones from Amazon, awaiting delivery. I've learned that the 4" skillet is perfect to cook a small dessert (apple crisp, fruit galette) after the entree is done.

    i've got one as well. as bobbyb said, awesome for steaks.

    I'm still putting my large BGE together but the Mini will be my next purchase.

    You are one :P
  • I picked up two of them last year at the Florida Fest, one was for a friend but the other one is all mine. Also ordered the Mini Kim Woo and it gives the mini a whole new bag of tricks to work with. It's not as versatile as the large and doesn't come close to the cooking space of the small but it's sure a lot of fun to cook on.

  • I got a used mini as part of a package deal along with a small several years ago. I thought it would be a cute addition to the collection. Instead, I use it almost as much as the large. It's a super searing machine and works well for 1 or 2 people.

    Love mine -- use it as much if not more than the others. Great little grill for tailgating too.
  • I have one and was surprised how often I use it rather than the Large.
  • aaindaaind Posts: 235
    I love all my eggs but use the mini a lot
