Should I or Should I Not

Options

I have three eggs – Large and Medium built into table – and a mini on a cast iron table

Mini – Never used – Not been registered – cast iron grate – raised grid – carrier for the mini – again all new

My dealer is giving me a “Super” price on the MiniMax – which leads to the question –

Should I sell the Mini and buy the MiniMax?

    Sounds like the large and medium have handled all your needs quite well.  With that, it's your call but I would sort out the driver and place in your arsenal for the MM given the lack of use on the mini.  FWIW-
    You may just want to sell the mini.

    Doesn’t sound like you need it

    The MiniMax is essentially a small that will travel, but be advised that it is heavy.  Most people need a helping hand to carry it around.  

    I mostly use mine on trips out to the beach.  It can handle a 10-lb pork butt.  And of course you can sear steaks on it just like you can with the Mini.

    Agree. For home use there are better options to expand your arsenal.

     I have a medium, a mini, and a minimax.  At home, the minimax is only used for an occasional side.  I would not sell a mini to get a minimax.  The minimax is heavy, harder to control temps, limited height so you always cook close to the fire.  For home use, another medium would be better.  For travel, a weber smokey joe works better.
