Big Green Egg Banner

Simply put, Big Green Egg is the most versatile cooking system on the planet. It's the ultimate combination of a kamado grill, charcoal smoker, and ceramic grill.

Grilling meats for a backyard barbeque? Eggs have high-heat capabilities for searing steaks, plus pinpoint heat control for pork chops or burgers.

Want to get creative and try a tempting pizza recipe on the grill? An Egg can also serve as an outdoor oven using its indirect convEGGtor accessory. (Don't tell your kitchen oven, but an Egg just might cook pizza, casseroles, or bread so well that you'll never cook indoors again!)

How about slow smoking ribs or pulled pork? The Egg can do that too. It gives you precise temperature control even at low heat, so smoking the meat of your choice for up to 18 hours is no problem for the Egg.

Why Should I Buy a Big Green Egg?

Big Green Egg grills meet every grilling need in a ceramic, kamado-style charcoal package. Whether you want to grill, smoke, roast or bake, a Big Green Egg can do it all and do it better than any other grill on the market. Big Green Egg also offers hundreds of EGGcessories, like pizza stones and convection systems to make your Egg even better.

How Does a Big Green Egg Work?

Let's get into the nitty-gritty of a Big Green Egg. The concept of a kamado-style, ceramic grill has been around for centuries, but we simply have perfected it. With modern technology and the best materials, we've created the absolute best version of the ceramic grill.

It starts with lighting the charcoal. This process is made easy thanks to precision air flow control at the bottom of the grill, a sealed fire box that holds our proprietary charcoal, and adjustable top vents that control the air flow out of the top of your Egg. The big benefit? Precision temperature control through the dual vent setup.

From there, it's up to you to set the temperature for whatever you're grilling, baking, roasting or smoking, then let the Egg go to work!
