@SGH and @Foghorn, I was laughing so hard because you guys reminded me about a buddy from college. We shared an apartment and took turns cooking. Growing up, my parents always cook extra so no one's hungry. We always had leftovers. But this one guy, Barry was a HUGE eater. It became a silent contest of sorts, I cooked more and more and he'll finish everything! No leftovers! Our 3rd roommate could sense tension brewing.
Finally after a few months, I made enough food for 10 easily. And when he couldn't finish everything he apologized for not finishing everything!?! That he tried really hard and it was good...
Turns out, he was raised not to waste food, not finishing meant you didn't like it. For me, if there weren't leftovers, you're not being hospitable... We had a big laugh about it. Portion size got back to normal after that.
@henapple, my kub isn't a mini, but, it does come up to temp really fast. Since I steal used lumps from the other cookers, I don't have to wait for the smoke to change color! This made it possible for weekday cooks!!!!
