Just got my second BGE!

I got my XL about two years ago and just picked up a Medium. When I joined this I heard several people talking about once you get one you are going to want to get another one. I thought those people were crazy! I was wrong. I am loving this! I don't post that often here but I have learned a lot from people here.

    Nice setup. It only took me about 6 months to get the second one.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    You and I traveled the same path.  XL about 1 1/2 years ago and the Medium just before Christmas!  Its an awesome setup.  Now we can feed from 2 to 20 now!   I found myself not grilling because I didn't want to fire up the XL for just a single steak or chicken for the wife and I.  I also like the ability to reverse sear or Trex using two, or low and slow on one and direct on the other.  The possibilities are endless!   Enjoy.  Really like your table.  I have been dragging butt building mine for a year. There are newbies on here that built nice ones in less than a week!  I am ashamed.

    Congrats on the new medium. I still miss mine but I'll have another one someday - it's just the perfect size for so many cooks.

    Medium XL combination is a nice one. I started with medium and just hit my XL. A table is in my cards, but I'd like to be in my next house - I plan on moving when I can.

    Sweet table. I bought 3 within a few months, while SWMBO was still softened up.

    Congrats on the new addition to your family!! I was like you in a way. I thought I might get a Small some year down the road. Instead it was a second Large after 5 months. Now a third one doesn't seem out of the question.
