Is Medium size a good choice

I am new to the forum and trying to decide what size Green Egg to purchase. I do most of my grilling for 2 people and seldom for more than 4. I grill a lot of seafood and occasionly chicken breasts or small whole chicken. I will be smoking fish as well. I like the idea of a medium size because of the weight and the more compact size. Has antone had any experience grilling on the medium size? Is there much difference in fuel consumption?

Thanks Jim


  • Hey Jim
    I usually cook for 2 also. But just in case, I bought the large. I am 100% satisfied. On special occasions I cook for a larger group, family, friends. Large is good for me. I hope someone with a medium answers. It might be just fine.

    The large is nice because you have more options for accessories. If price isn't a big deal get the large the extra room is nice. You can get a spider for the large and you can sear meat with less lump than the medium. They don't make a spider for the medium.

    I have a large as well and live alone ... you will like and need the extra space in the long run, I sure do.
    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    now that you've settled on the large... here is the xl seed being planted :)
    context is important :)

    You'll find it difficult to get a rack of ribs on a medium unless you start dividing the rack,

    We generally cook for 2-6 people. I love my large and may add an X-large in the near future.
