    1st Large - July 2011 (wedding gift)
    Med - bought June 2013 (sold Sept. 2013)
    2nd Large - bought Sept 2013

    Grilled for the first 6 months. Started egging after that.

    We probably average 3 days per week. I'm on the road quite a bit but when I'm home, we egg Sat and Sun plus at least 2x per week.

    I bought my medium in February 2012, and my XL December. I try to cook an egg twice a week, but my work schedule conflicts. I need to do more lunch on the egg.

    I met my wife to be 34 years ago and her dad, my father in law to be, had an Imperial Kamado that he had since the sixties. That's before there were BGEs. I started cooking on his and I realized " I got to get one of these". I've had too many to pin dates on when they came and went but I can tell you I've honestly been cooking on them for over thirty years. So here's my line up:





    two Kubs

    Still looking for a small to fill the line up.

    XLBGE, LBGE, MBGE, SMALL, MINI, 2 Kubs, Fire Magic Gasser
