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.
