I had to choose Other. I refuse to put the Weber Kettle in the same category as "Mass produced charcoal grill". It deserves a category by itself.

I use the WSMs most of the time, but I still like to play with the BSKD on occasion. When the UDS gets done and/or I finish modding the CharGriller things may change, who knows?

It depends on the quantity and location....

If I'm at home and it's just me and my daughter it's the BGE, larger quantity it's the Lang.... Up at the cottage it's the 'Cottage Cooker' (UDS)

Grill on the gasser, BBQ on the UDS, WSM does not get fired up very often since the barrel was built.

I have gotten so farkin spoiled with my BGEs that I am getting rid of everything else and getting a small BGE to add to the clutch.
I will add a Traeger pellet smoker for production but the everyday is done on the BGE almost every day, at least 20 days a month.

2 CharGrill offsets, 1 New Braunfels offset, and a weber kettle round out my arsenal. I think I'm making a UDS this weekend though.

I've gotten bit by outdoor cooking so bad, and been able to build or cheaply acquire so many pits that it's obscene. I would have to say that I really enjoy the smell and taste of meats cooked on my UDS's, they are just so easy to use. But I'm also proud of the Kamados I've refurbished, but they are primarily for grilling and like the BGE are very fuel efficient. The WSM's don't get used as often as they should and that's a shame. The Performer is used mostly for rotisserie grilling. My wife would kill me if she didn't have a gasser to fire up, so the Genesis gets a workout. The Cookshack comes in handy when I can't tend a pit, and the La Caja China is something I could live without. I'm spoiled.
