Often copied, but never equaled – the Big Green Egg is the Ultimate Cooking Experience. Its design is modeled on the clay cooking vessels first seen during the Chinese Qin Dynasty and then used by the Japanese beginning in the 3rd century. Today’s Big Green Egg is a modern-day evolution of these ancient cookers.

Founded by American serviceman, Ed Fisher in 1974, the Big Green Egg sought to recreate the same taste based on the same design and materials that had been used thousands of years ago. As the EGG gained popularity, the company aligned with a state-of-the-art factory to incorporate new types of ceramics based on materials initially developed by NASA for the space program, and worked tirelessly to find ways to improve the design. The result was a far superior cooker that is stronger, more durable and provides better heat insulation than anything else on the market, a distinction the Big Green Egg is known for today.

From succulent ribs to crispy pizza, the Big Green Egg will exceed all of your expectations for culinary perfection. No need to worry about running out of propane gas or dealing with burners, power cords or pellet augers. The innovative design of an EGG enables it to perform without any of those components – delivering delicious results every time. The Big Green Egg’s Lump Charcoal is made in the USA from 100% natural oak and hickory for superb performance and flavor. Lighting the charcoal is quick and easy with our natural charcoal starters or an electric or butane EGGniter. Not only does Big Green Egg charcoal burn hotter and more efficiently, than charcoal briquettes, it also produces less ash so there is minimal waste and clean up. 

You have total control over temperature at your fingertips by easily adjusting the patented air flow system, and the calibrated temperature gauge provides precise readings from 150º to 750º (50º to 400ºC). The insulating, solid construction maintains heat in any weather for year-round use, and many EGGs are used throughout the winter even in northern climates. The Big Green Egg features an easy-to-clean stainless steel cooking grid, and the distinctive green exterior has a lifetime glaze that maintains its good looks and wipes clean easily without harsh cleaners.
