Egg purchase

I am going to buy an egg. I won't use it much. Does the small egg perform as well as the large egg. Things like get as hot , provide the same taste and all that?[p]Thanks

    I have both the small and large eggs. They cook the same.
    The only difference is the volume of each. I think that if
    you purchase one you will use it a lot more than you think.
    Good Luck! - Ray

    Carl,[p]I have a medium and it will do EVERYTHING! You can cook more in a large, but I love the Medium! I started out with a small and upgraded after two weeks! I've also added a mini to the mix![p]Smokey

    Carl,[p]As has been stated, the small Egg does the same job only in lesser quantities and is perfect for a family of maybe 4. Many of us feel that the small has a slight advantage over the medium or large for high temp grilling (steaks, etc) since the food is closer to the glowing coals. [p]You'll be surprised as to how much you will use it.[p]K~G

  • Carl,
    Buy the medium, if you don't like it, or you think it is too big. One of us on the forum will probably buy it from you.

    <p />Carl, the medium is a good all around choice - in my medium (see picture), I have done pulled pork & beef low and slow for 20 hours on one load of lump and I have very easily brought the temp up to 1,000 degrees to sear steaks - great all around flexibility. For more ideas of what the medium can do, check out the link - about the only thing you can't do would be a really large turkey. Good luck!
