I already have 2 bge's a large and a medium. I also have a 22 and 18 weber kettle along with a MES. I have gotten pretty comfortable with the egg, and use those 90% of the time. I use the MES for set it and forget it meals.

Hence the question - do I really NEED this smoker? I've always been intrigued by the pellet burners but I also know that I can do anything I want with what Ive got. Im very tempted. Should I just use the money to buy myself a Cyber Q which would allow my egg to be a set it and forget it cooker?

I dont want to buy this thing and not use it. But I dont want to not buy it and regret it for a while until I force myself to buy one which would most likely cost more. Sure, I could resell for a small profit, but that wouldnt look too good in my buddy's eyes.

Im torn and need you guys (I already know the wife's answer) to help me feel good about my decision - whatever it might be.
Are you crazy?

Of COURSE you need another smoker.

  • In preparing for disaster (power outages, the second coming), you need to have all forms of cooking devices handy. Gas, sticks, zombie carcasses...you get the picture.
  • It can only improve your smoking skills in preparation for comps.

I, of course, would be honored to take any stragglers you had to get rid of. They would have a wonderful home in Southern California.
