    My wife yells at me everytime I acquire a new grill.. So I have four now !! They all do different things..
    So now I have my CG 5050 w SFB , ECB converted to propane, my new weber gold 22.5. And my brother in law said I have this in the attic for ever and I never use it. Do you want it? A new smokey joe still in the box!!!
    I ain't going to say no.
    So how many grill is too many?

    Lemans, my guess would be , if you have so many that smokers someone calsl that "Hoarders" show , you have too many.

    I also have a collection.

    Later . . .
  3. Too many is when your wife is walking out of the house to go stay at her mothers [​IMG]

    Well let's see...

    You still need a mini, wsm, mes, traeger and a cookshack. So you still need five more!
  5. It is easy, the number of purses and shoes she has, divided by 3.

    Four for me.  My wife bought two of them for me, plus the Smokenator, and strongly encouraged me to get the WSM.  She doesn't like to cook and is happy to leave it to me.

    If you include my smokey joe, that I rarely use... I have 6. My wife thinks I'm crazy, my family and friends think I am crazy and I love every minute of it. Haha I am always cruising craigslist just in case I see something interesting.

    "They do different things" - that's the point exactly. It's like having different shoes for different purposes.

    I have a Masterbuilt offset stick burner for serious smoking, an old Weber for hot smoking/grilling, and a Lodge Sportsman for small grilling. But I could do small grilling on either of the first two.

    I still want to get a little gas portable shoebox grill, just for simple instant-on grilling that can travel.

    I currently have 7 (5 smoker/grills and 2 smokers) and that is as far as I think I can push her understanding at the moment. Two of the grills are gas and so are not used very much.

    All except the gas ones were in use this weekend.

    Unfortunately one side-effect of buying more smokers is that you also have to buy more digital thermometers [​IMG]

    She knows that I want a new WSM but I think if I buy one now the divorce settlement may mean it would work out more expensive than I bargained for - Lol

    I am kinda lucky cause my wife is my partner in our prep for next year's BBQ she is actually fully on board on acquiring additional smokers! :)

    I got 1 gas smoker, a 22.5 silver, 22.5 gold, a mini and a cg pellet... pretty sure that's all I can pull off for now as the patio is full (maybe next place will have a grill only patio)

    At my house the correct answer was the time I bought my Rec Tec pellet smoker, I also had an MES, a GOSM gasser, a New Braunfels stick burner, and a Brinkmann gas grill. That's when Mrs. Red says, "Some of that stuff has got to go". :wife:

    So the boss has spoken...3 of those rigs are now gone, leaving me with the Rec Tec and the GOSM.

    The correct answer is no more than one of any model (not style). Say you have a Lang offset, and you buy a Yoder offset; no problem. But if you have a Weber Silver, and you buy another Weber Silver, that's too many. A Weber Silver, and a Weber One-Touch, not too many. See how it works?

    Of course I did not mention my gas Crepe grill before as I was not sure if that counted... but I suppose it should

    Is that now a tie? [​IMG]

  20. I sure am glad Mrs. Red made you get rid of the MES [​IMG].  IT is in a good place now.

    Happy smoken.
