Big Green Egg Sizes


What is the Big Green Egg? Is it a grill? Is it a smoker? Is it an oven? The answer to all of these questions is yes. This revolutionary American made ceramic cooker has been a source of culinary innovation from professionals and novices for over 30 years. Though there have been many imitations on the market, there really is only one Big Green Egg. And now is your chance to bring this product home for the holidays.

The Big Green Egg really can do it all, and in its variety of sizes you can find the perfect one to fit your needs. It is a charcoal cooker, so no propane necessary. This allows you to get that nice smoked flavor that you can only get from cooking over charcoal. The possibilities with a Big Green Egg are endless; you can cook chicken, steak, pork chops, fish, pizza and so much more all with one product. This eliminates a need to purchase separate appliances to achieve all these results.

The Egg makes outdoor entertaining easy. With such a versatile tool in the backyard, there is less for you to have to do in the house allowing you to maximize time with your guests. Even during the times when you will be entertaining indoors, nothing starts the party like slow cooked ribs fresh from a Big Green Egg.

The Big Green Egg Grill is one of the best cookers on the market. The “Egg” as it is known, derived from the Japanese Kamodo Cooker. Pilots coming back from the Korean War brought them home upon their return and there has been a following in the U.S ever since. The Big Green Egg company was started over 25 years and its headquarter office is located in Atlanta, Georgia- the home of “low & slow” cooking.

The Egg is in a ceramic cooker that not only cooks “low & slow”, but can bake a pizza, sear stakes, and grill burgers, tuna, roast, turkey, and ribs like no other. Since the Egg is ceramic, is it much easier to maintain the temperature you want. A bowl of the Big Green Egg lump charcoal will last from 7-9 hours at 250°F without refilling charcoal.  The biggest difference you will find between The Egg and other cookers or grills is the incredible flavor you get when using The Egg.  You'll see for yourself that no matter what food it is, everything tastes better cooked on an Egg!

One of the most popular ways of cooking food is by using a “plate setter” to cook indirectly. This way of cooking is the best for cooking “low & slow,” while not burning the outside of the food you’re cooking. This method is also great for keeping the food moist and not dried out.  It's the outdoor cooker you've always dreamed about.  That's why grilling fans and chefs and chefs around the world are calling the Big Green Egg the Ultimate Cooking EGGsperience!
