    Nice job. I’m hoping my Large has an offspring soon.

    The second BGE is a true game changer.  Nice score.  I will offer that you should make the first lump load virgin lump (aka never before been outside the bag) as after that all my SBE gets are leftovers from the LBGE.  FWIW-

    Congratulations!  I have a large and a mini.  Each has its own place, and never regretted getting the second one.

    @lousubcap Just curious what you meant by leftovers from the Lbge? Why not always use fresh lump?

    Congratulations!  The MM is a great 2nd egg.  (Just don't mention anything to @The Cen-Tex Smoker)

    I always restock the SBGE with remaining lump from the LBGE as close to 95+% of the SBGE cooks are hot and fast while the LBGE gets everything else as the L&S work-horse. 
    Should I decide to run L&S on the SBGE then I will use virgin lump but that is a rare occurrence.    FWIW-

    Nailed that cook right out of the gate.  Congrats.  
    BGE skill set is easily transferred to any of the routine sizes.  Now, when you are in @DMW big wheels country that could be a whole different story.   B)

    Congratulations on the new egg. I do the same as @lousubcap. When I clean my large, I take the smaller pieces from the large and use them in the MM. I think the smaller pieces fit better and burn better for the way I cook. If nothing else, it leaves bigger pieces in the large. Probably makes no difference- it’s just what I do.

    @SciAggie

    Do you guys have the woo or plate setter for your mini max?

    Im trying to figure out if I’d use the mini max for anything else outside of hot and fast.

    @Leopoldstoch - I have a SBGE not the MM.  I use a Ceramic Grill Store woo and stone setup along with a Hi-Que grate.  It is a true hacker.

     I use the woo all the time.  Raised direct with the woo makes perfect chicken.  I use it with a wok for fajitas.   Veggies in the wok on the MM, meat on the LGBE.  The kick ash basket is also greatly appreciated.  Gets up to temp much quicker than with the grate it came with.  Don't get the plate setter.  Great looking steak.

    Congrats on the MM!  You’ll love it!  I bought the Woo, stone, drip pan combo from CGS and I highly recommend it!  Tom is good people!  In fact, I talked to him today and ordered some more goodies for my LBGE.  His products are truly game-changers!

    Big fan of the woo in the mini max (actually every size). I strongly recommend the handles too. 

    Mini max Facebook group is pretty active too if that’s your thing. I didn’t start the group but somehow became the admin of it:
