Well, I admit I do the same thing on one machine.  I have jessie, stretch 
with fluxbox, and stretch with kde and I hate it when I upgrade a kernel 
and get grub menu inconsistent so i purged grub pkg on two of them.  I 
have used chroot in the past in an emergency to update-initramfs, but this 
setup is pretty solid with an edited 40-custom file on the grub machine.

I'm thinking a common /boot partition would be easier but not sure how to 
set that up.
