The Heavy Duty Big Green Egg® is made of modern heat holding ceramics. The ceramic
walls are heavy and thick. This insulating quality cooks foods with an amazingly small
consumption of charcoal. A 20 LB bag of natural charcoal will usually provide four to six
months use, even if you cook out several times per week. When you are through
cooking, just close the lid and the top and bottom drafts to extinguish the fire. You can
reuse about 80% of the charcoal. This feature alone will pay for your Big Green Egg® in
a short time.
EASY TEMPERATURE CONTROL
By adjusting the dampers, you can attain a temperature accuracy within two degrees.
You have total control. You can do your grilling, barbecuing, smoking, and baking at
exactly the temperatures you need. The optional heat gauge will give precise readings of
temperature, from 50° to 750°. We have included a cookbook with recipes and easy
instructions. You'll get great results from the start.
THE WORLD'S BEST SMOKER
Smoking is done at lower temperatures—usually between 150° and 250°. Add some
moistened wood chips to the glowing charcoal for flavor. Your Egg® gives you control of
the degree of smoked flavor. You can have just a hint of smoke, or have your meats
smoked through to the bone. With the Big Green Egg® you can smoke foods exactly the
way you like them.
EASY TO START
Lighting is quick without starter fluid regardless of wind conditions. All you need are a few
sheets of newspaper. The air flow works like a fireplace. The Big Green Egg® will be at
operating temperature and ready to use in less than ten minutes. You can use an electric
lighter for even greater convenience.
A COMPLETE OUTDOOR COOKER
The BGE® is a smoker, a grill, and an oven. You can do an entire meal at once by
including your veggies—corn, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, etc. are superb! There are
even deserts you can enjoy from the Egg®. The cookbook has many more suggestions.
The Big Green Egg® ceramics hold heat and moisture extremely well. For this reason,
foods do not dry out, as in metal charcoal, gas, or electric grills. Natural juices and
flavors enhance the taste. The BGE® operates without the need for water or endless
hours of tending. Meats and other foods are juicier, with little or no shrinkage.
SAFER TO USE
The Big Green Egg® is safer to use because the ceramic surface stays cooler than a
metal cooker. This protection is most important around small children.
The ceramic Big Green Egg® gives a natural and wholesome flavor to all your foods—
with no metallic taste. When baking, you'll get a "brick-oven" flavor and crust. Bake a
bread or a pizza in your Big Green Egg® and see for yourself.
You can use The Big Green Egg® in all climates. Rain and snow cannot harm it. It is
suitable for all year use, even in freezing temperatures. The BGE® can be priceless in
EASY CLEAN UP
The exterior has a lifetime porcelain glaze bonded to the ceramic. This permanent finish
maintains its good looks and wipes clean easily. Inside, the heat will burn off any grease
and splatters much like a self-cleaning oven. The porcelain coated grill is easy to clean.
When your cookout is over you'll have less than a handful of ash to remove.
LIFETIME CERAMIC GUARANTEE
Heavy Duty Big Green Egg® ceramics will not become brittle with use like the fire-clay
kamados of old. These new space age ceramics will withstand 2000 ° of heat without
damage. Sear your steaks and fish at 700° or more. Smoke your roast or ham at 200° or
less. Your Big Green Egg® will maintain the temperature you set, and perform superbly
at high and low temperatures!
