Welcome to the Big Green Egg, the Original American Designed Ceramic Cooker. The Big Green Egg has rewarded its owners with amazing results since 1974. This catalog will introduce you to this “EGGstraordinary” product, its advantages, and to what some “EGGheads” (dedicated owners of the Big Green Egg) have to say about the EGG®.
Complete Outdoor Cooker
With its unparalleled flexibility of use, you can use your Big Green Egg for everything from grilling a steak to slow cooking a tender brisket to baking a loaf of bread. Vegetables – corn, potatoes, mushrooms, onions – and even desserts are superb. You can cook everything that you need for an entire meal at once!
The Big Green Egg is made using spaceage ceramics that were developed specifically for our product. The EGG retains heat and moisture so well that foods do not dry out! Meats and other foods undergo little or no shrinkage and are tastier because the natural juices and flavors stay locked inside.
Easy to Start
The Big Green Egg reaches cooking temperature and is ready to use in approximately 10 minutes. Lighting the natural lump charcoal is quick using a natural fire starter or an electric lighter; no lighter fluid should be used. The inventive design of the EGG draws air into the lower draft door, through the charcoal, and out of the damper top.
Easy Temperature Control
You can grill, smoke and bake at exact temperatures by adjusting the dampers. You have total control over the temperature, maintaining accuracy within a few degrees! The temperature North American made gauge in the lid gives precise temperature readings from 0ºF to 750ºF +.
Easy Clean Up
The Big Green Egg® exterior has a lifetime baked-on glaze that maintains its good looks and easily wipes clean. Inside, the heat burns off any grease build-up – like a self-cleaning oven.
The Big Green Egg is easy to use in all climates, even in freezing temperatures, snow or rain.

Better than Water Smokers
A water smoker is made of metal and requires a pan of water to keep foods from drying out. Water smokers are very slow, taking up to 12 hours to smoke a turkey or ham. It is difficult to maintain temperatures, on a cold or blustery day they become inefficient. The Big Green Egg®:
- Cooks your ham or turkey to perfection in just a few hours
- Minimizes drying heat loss; your foods retain their moisture
- Dispenses with the need for messy water pans and frequent refilling
- Makes cleanup a breeze; there is no greasy mess
- Uses very little charcoal and produces very little ash
Better than Gas Grills
The Big Green Egg offers the best of both charcoal and gas grilling options – fast start time and charcoal flavor. The Big Green Egg:
- Fires up in 10 minutes
- Cooks juicier, more succulent foods
- Allows you to grill meats rare, medium, well done, or anything in between
- Cooking time is faster than on a gas grill
- Reaches a hotter searing temperature than ordinary gas grills
Better than Kettle Grills
Kettle grills rarely cook evenly and they tend to have hot spots. The Big Green Egg:
- Retains, circulates and radiates heat evenly for perfectly cooked meals
- The EGG® holds the heat – the kettle loses heat, especially in cold or windy weather
- The Big Green Egg keeps food moist – the kettle dries food out
- The Big Green Egg is Number 1!
