My Egg's name

Even though I do not yet actually have my BGE safely on my deck (awaiting delivery), I have decided on a name. He shall be called "BRUCE!" This is short for the Italian 'bruciare" which means "to burn, flame or sear." Also in the Celtic, Bruce means "woods or thicket."
Surely I'm not the only one to name their important appliances. What do you call your Egg?

    I call my eggs the mini, the small, the medium, the large, and the XL. Nobody get's confused. I also think of Monty Python when you say Bruce. "You mind if we call you Bruce to keep it clear?" [p]Beers

    My Lg BGE is named ...... mEGGan! I am consulting a couple of friends of mine to inquire on how to paint this on with special paint on the ceramic lid!

    thirdeye, We have Fat Men and Little Boy. They are called this because my mother came to visit once. (She's actually been here twice in 20 years). She asked if we were going to cook "on one of those green bombs." JCA

    WoodChuck, Team Cedar Grilling, in Canada, has many BGEs painted with their sponsor's logo. Maybe you should check the Canadian forum, eh? JCA

  • thirdeye,
    You must be in the x-ray business. Not to many people have survey meters at home. I am an x-xray hand. I am no an API inspector.
