That's definitely not too many. I have six and they all get used. Just two of us(doesnt mean I dont get a little grief from my better half) (i dont criticize how many pairs of shoes a person should own).

I got 3 myself, I don't think it's to many. especially since my wife bought me two of them.

The answer is there are never too many! I have 4 not including other grills and things and I still have my eye on about 3 others!

Myself... I think you need a stick burner now... Tell her every time she buys a new pair of shoes or a purse or whatever... you get a new grill/smoker... LOL... and then let us all know how that works...

You can see from my sig that I am with the ‘mo is better’ camp here. Son in law has an old stick burner we will refurb, and I’m pining to add a pellet also. And yes, all getting used for various reasons.
Don’t need fewer units, just need a bigger deck!
