Smoke something maybe 2 or 3 times a month...

Grill something on the kettle? At least every weekend. Its a Sunday thing for me. Come home from church, fire up the kettle, put on the race, and grill/bbq whatever I can find. Chicken, steak, veggies, corn, pork loin, name it.

Same here. I grill about 3-4 times a week & smoke a couple times/month. Used to smoke a lot more when I first started. Still love smoked meat but can't eat the same thing everyday.

Got a big joe kamado on the way so I can cook, smoke, grill and bake whatever and whenever I want ;)

Try to smoke at least once a month, but use the grill at least once or twice a week.

As far as actual smoking (several-hours cooks of big chunks of meat like butts or ribs and such,) probably 2-3x a month-sometimes more, sometimes less. I tend to smoke a lot of meat at once if I'm making something like pulled pork, and vacuum seal and freeze a bunch instead of firing the smoker all day every week for one meal's worth. Now as far as grilling, there is a grill fired up here probably at least 5x a week. Hell, I cook breakfast on the grill sometimes.

At least once a week but usually two or three times. It just depends on what the local church's and scout groups, youth bb teams ,family and friends have going on

If we're talking grilling over charcoal, then it would be couple three times/week during the grilling season. (Around here, the grilling season runs from January 1 through December 31. )

I am an addict right now. I have cooked almost every day on my Kamado since I got it about 6 weeks ago. Looking for a good 12 step program. Maybe Q.A. I need a sponsor though. Maybe Gore will volunteer!

Now that its starting to warm up outside, I've cooked at least once a week for the last month or so. Once it warms up (this weekend!) I usually cook 3-4times a week on the cooker. Wish it was more, but i work super long hours

At least once a weekend for me. More during holidays. And if i had more time it would be more often than that and there would be more experimenting.
