The Big Green Egg - How It Works

The Big Green Egg is a marvel of modern technology, propriety processes, and ancient traditions all brought together in a perfect product that is stronger, more durable, and provides better heat insulation than other other outdoor cooker on the market today. 

It can reach perfect cooking temparature in just a few short minutes.  The charcoal used in the Big Green Egg is made in the USA and only the best cuts of natural oak and hickory for wonderful tasting food.  And lighting the charcoal is quick and easy.  Never buy lighter fluida again!

What can the Big Green Egg be used for?  Grilling, smoking, and baking can all be done at exact temperatures, so you can feel confident in whatever food you wish to prepare.

It is also extremely safe to use since the ceramic surface doesn't get as hot as a metal grill.

And what about clean up? Easy!!!  The Big Green Egg has a professional grade stainless steel cooking grid with a lifetime glaze that wipes clean without any chemical cleaners.  Inside, the heat burns away any grease build-up, just like a self cleaning oven.
