The premium ceramics offering unrivalled thermal properties are literally at the core of the Big Green Egg’s excellent heat retention, fuel efficiency and unbelievably moist food. The materials in the EGG’s ceramics have performed flawlessly in extreme conditions for decades. Don’t settle for an imitation. If it doesn’t say “Big Green Egg”, it isn’t.
Fast & Easy To Light
Unlike metal barbecues that take 45 minutes to reach cooking temperature the Big Green Egg is ready in a third of that time, just 12-15 minutes. Unbelievable but true!
Our chemical free Fire Starters burn at high temperature without the need for unhealthy chemical or petrol accelerants. Simply light and leave the lid open for 10 minutes. Five more minutes with the dome lid closed and you’re ready to cook. The precise regulation of airflow and insulated ceramics mean the EGG is significantly more fuel-efficient than other barbecues. One load of charcoal will burn for up to 16 hours in the Large EGG, as opposed 45 minutes in other charcoal barbecues.
Charcoal - The Natural Choice
Big Green Egg painstakingly source our charcoal to ensure it is all carbonised hardwood and not made from treated wood offcuts with additives or petroleum byproducts- which can be found in other charcoal and briquettes on the market. You put effort into cooking your favourite meals so don’t compromise when it comes to selecting the best fuel for your EGG!
