Welcome to the Big Green Egg, the Original American Designed Ceramic
Cooker. Derived from an ancient clay cooker called a "kamado," the
modern Big Green Egg has undergone many improvements since it was
introduced in 1974. Especially significant is replacement of the clay
used in early models with durable space-age ceramics developed
specifically for Big Green Egg to make the EGG® virtually
indestructible under ordinary cooking conditions.
We have become the world's largest producer and international
distributor of ceramic kamado-style cookers. You can be sure that your
investment in the Big Green Egg is protected by a reliable company with more than 30
years of experience and an impeccable reputation for offering top

convenient cooking and superb eating!
The EGG is a unique barbecue product, with unmatched flexibility and
capabilities that surpass all other conventional cookers combined. It
is a smoker, a grill and an oven and you can cook literally any food on
it year around, from appetizers to entrees to desserts.

Five Different Sizes
There is a Big Green Egg to fit everyone's outdoor cooking needs with
five sizes ranging from Mini to Extra Large. You can use the EGG® year
around in all climates, even in freezing temperatures or during pouring
rain. You will find it more versatile than any outdoor cooking
appliance on the market, whether comparing it to gas, electric or
another charcoal grill, because the EGG is a smoker, a grill and an
oven all rolled into one. Here are some of the reasons current owners
love their EGG.
It's A Complete Outdoor Cooker
The Big Green Egg has unparalleled cooking flexibility. You can grill
steaks and chops to the perfect degree of doneness, cooking at
temperatures up to 750°F for steakhouse searing. But if
fallin'-off-the-bone ribs or a tasty, juicy brisket is on your menu,
the EGG will maintain a low temperature of 200° to 250°F for the
low-and-slow smoke cooking that develops wonderful flavor while
tenderizing the meat. Whether searing or slow cooking, prepare the
entire meal on the grill by adding any of your favorite vegetables to
the cooking grid. If you're longing for cornbread, biscuits, a freshly
baked loaf of bread or even a warm pie or cobbler to complete your
meal, the EGG bakes better than a brick oven.
The simple secret to temperature control is the easily adjustable
dampers that let you maintain accuracy within a few degrees. The
exterior temperature gauge gives precise temperature readings of the
cooker's internal temperature.
The EGG retains moisture in foods and releases flavor unequalled by
other types of cooking, indoors or outdoors, thanks to the space-age
ceramics from which the cooker is made. Foods don't dry out and meat
undergoes little or no shrinkage. Foods will have a natural and
wholesome quality and there are no metallic or chemical tastes. The
ceramic surface doesn't get as hot as a metal cooker, also making the
EGG safer to use.
Easy to Start
The Big Green Egg reaches cooking temperature and is ready to use in
approximately 10 minutes. The inventive design of the EGG draws air
into the lower draft door, through the charcoal, and out of the damper
top. We recommend using natural lump charcoal, which lights quickly,
and by using a natural fire starter, or an electric lighter, no lighter
fluid is ever needed!
Easy Clean Up
Burning natural lump charcoal results in less ash than burning
briquettes, thus less frequent ash clean out is required. The Big Green
Egg exterior has a lifetime glaze that maintains its good looks and
easily wipes clean with a damp cloth. Inside, the heat burns off any
grease build-up - like a self-cleaning oven.
Which size EGG best fits your needs? You have a choice of five sizes
ranging from a Mini to an Extra Large. The detail provided here will
let you determine which size you want. But keep in mind that it is not
unusual for enthusiastic outdoor chefs to actually own more than one.
