What Is So Great About The Big Green Egg?

Unless you live on planet Mars, you’ve probably heard people rave about The Big Green Egg and just how great this grill is. The company’s tagline is “the ultimate cooking experience,” and this certainly seems to be the case. But like most great things, it’s hard to believe it until you experience it yourself. That’s why we often hear the question from visitors in our showroom: “What is so great about the Big Green Egg?”

This is a question we like to answer at The Fireplace Service Company, as we’ve seen firsthand just how easy and exciting the Big Green Egg makes outdoor cooking. We’ve also now encountered hundreds of happy Big Green Egg owners and can speak to its durability and crowd-pleasing capabilities.

Advantages Of The Big Green Egg

In case you are wondering, here’s what’s so great about The Big Green Egg:

Ease of use. Within just a few minutes, the Big Green Egg can reach cooking temperature. It’s also easy to clean up and safe to use as the ceramic surface does not get as hot as a metal grill.

Versatility. It’s a grill, an oven, and a smoker all rolled into one. The Egg gives you the ability to control the temperature so that you can use it to do everything from smoking a turkey to searing a pork chop. Meanwhile, a Plate Setter gives you the option to use the indirect cooking method, allowing you to cook everything from pizza and calzones to cobblers and pies inside your Big Green Egg.

History. The Big Green Egg was introduced in America in 1974, but the tradition of cooking in a clay cooking vessel with a lid dates back to the 1600s, when the Chinese revealed their kamado cookers.

Personal. Available in six different sizes to suit your needs, the Big Green Egg also has hundreds of accessories and related products that allow you to customize it your home, your recipes, and your family.

The Big Green Egg has proven again and again to be stronger and more durable, and to provide better and more consistent heat insulation than anything else on the market.
