The Big Green Egg is based on a design for a clay oven that is more than 3,000 years old, known as the ‘kamado’. The modern Big Green Egg has undergone many improvements since it was introduced in 1974.
Its now the Worlds best Ceramic Cooker and we think the Worlds best Smoker/BBQ!
The EGG is the most unique barbecue product on the market, with unmatched flexibility and capabilities that surpass all other conventional cookers combined.
It is a smoker, a grill, an oven and a pizza oven - you can literally cook any food you choose at any time of year in any weather.
If you are a BBQ junkie then this is the last BBQ you will ever purchase. No more rusty one year old BBQ's, no more fat flare ups - just complements on how good everything tastes!
The Most Versatile Cooking Device Ever...
Is it a Grill, an Oven or a Smoker?
Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling – even at 400º C – is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavour-packed crust unmatched by other grills.
Using the indirect cooking method with a convEGGtor, the Big Green Egg bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, cobblers and pies better than your kitchen oven … you may never cook indoors again! The Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture so well that foods don’t dry out! Poultry, lamb, beef and vegetables are naturally tastier because the juices and flavors stay locked inside.
The insulating ceramics of the Big Green Egg allow you to precisely control the temperature even at low heat. A controllable 93 to 177°C gives succulent results with turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs or any of your favorite cuts, infusing them with the aromatic wood smoke flavor. Want to slow cook at low heat for sixteen to eighteen hours … no problem!
It’s all about flavour and quality at Big Green Egg. By preparing the best products on the EGG, their flavour takes on an exceptional, widely acclaimed subtlety. The Big Green Egg makes it possible to cook healthy, sustainable food, enhancing the quality of life. This contributes towards making the Big Green Egg synonymous with enjoying the best nature has to offer, together.

How it Works
Simple to Start
The Big Green Egg reaches cooking temperature and is ready to use in just minutes. Big Green Egg brand natural lump charcoal is made in the USA from oak and hickory for superb performance and results. Lighting the charcoal is quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to work like a fireplace. Use a natural charcoal starter or an electric starter; and never buy lighter fluid again!
Precise Temperature Control
You can grill, smoke and bake at exact temperatures by easily adjusting the patented air flow controls. You have total control over temperature at your fingertips, maintaining accuracy within a few degrees! The Made in USA precision temperature gauge provides accuracy to 400º C. Many indoor ovens cannot match the EGG’s temperature control and accuracy!
Safer to Use
The Big Green Egg is extremely safe to use because the ceramic surface doesn’t get as hot as a metal grill, and the heat source is protected within a ceramic fire box inside the base.
Easy Clean Up
The Big Green Egg features a stainless steel cooking grid and an elegant green exterior with a lifetime glaze that maintains its good looks and wipes clean easily without chemical cleaners. Inside, residual heat burns away any grease build-up – just like a self-cleaning oven.
