    My cookers are like golf clubs. Each one has a specific purpose or slight advantage over the other. Can never have too many IMO! MCS is a healthy sickness haaaaaaaa!

    Forget the cookers. That has got to be the greatest/funniest picture ever posted here. 😂 I mean, who gets 2 chickens, a dog and cat in a pose like that! Especially….2 chickens? WTF? They’re interested in a dishwasher? 😂 And that cat….standing up? OMG. 😂

    This thread is great. Too many cookers? Never. I have nine. I use them all but surely some far more than others. Could I do with less? Absolutely. But I’m having fun with a hobby I love and I am looking daily for cooker #10. 🤷‍♂️

    I'm not going to lie: I thought the title said 'Is MCS Partly Fueled by Bourbon with Success?'
    I almost replied 'Heck, yes!' 😜

    I have had a couple of friends say that my food is really good, and I should open a restaurant. Smiling, I say 'Thank you.' Internally, I scream 'Oh, my god -- a restaurant, no way!'
    I have much respect for people that can run a successful restaurant. Even if it is not the most famous, running a restaurant is hard.

    JGo37 I have given it some thought in the past. I think it could work especially with merchants selling grills unavailable at big box stores. Try the grill you might like it.

    ? um, what? 5 is the minimum - smoke, grill, 2-zone, griddle, sear. And of my two kettles, one sees strictly mesquite, the other mild woods. I really need a third for hickory-only. Beef sees mesquite, pork sees hickory. Sometimes a spatchcock will get a mesquite bath, but other cuts like quarters and thighs get pecan. Somewhere I got the idea that I didn't want my cookers 'cross-seasoned'.

    So I agree. No one needs five cookers, but 7 or 8 is really useful... I'm kidding. (no, I'm not)

    There is a collecting bug that, in my experience, is seen more in men than women and it kicks in around the topic of the collectible, in this case, cookers.

    What I mean is that while I know lots of women who collect wine and have palates just as good or better than the guys, the collectors skew male and especially the forum posters do. This same thing happened when I was into Japanese knives. Same here. In all cases, the forum posters are almost all guys. Like here, there are some women who post but they post more about the results than the gear. Their results are as good as any but most aren't into More X Syndrome. The whole thing is interesting to me - I can only assume that guys get socialized to collect gear at some point and that same thing isn't done for women.

    Face it, no one needs 5+ cookers. But some of us catch the bug to try out new things and then, instead of selling the ones we rarely use, we let the sit. But how many of you use more than 2 or 3 of our cookers with any regularity (and no, once a season doesn't count)?

    so - this needs to be kept a secret, but I'm ready to throw in with you for the Rent'a Grill startup - did you think of this, or did I?
