Using Your EGG
The Big Green EGG is extremely safe and hazard-free when used according to safety guidelines, and will provide years of trouble-free use and enjoyment. It is the user’s responsibility to maintain safe operation of the EGG and to exercise reasonable standards of care at all times. Do not attempt to modify or use non-Big Green Egg components inside your EGG as you may void the warranty, and modifications can lead to damage or injury. Don’t forget to read the Warranty and Register your EGG!
To fill your EGG, we recommend using Big Green Egg Lump Charcoal, made from a selection of 100% hardwoods. It will heat quickly and burn cleanly. This video will show you how to properly fill your EGG. Make sure you never use lighter fluid or quick light charcoal products – you don’t want it to taint the flavor of your food.
Lighting the charcoal is always quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to circulate efficiently. Use a natural charcoal starter or an electric starter and never buy lighter fluid again! The EGG reaches its optimal temperature within minutes when using the Big Green Egg brand of lump charcoal, made in the USA from select cuts of oak and hickory for superb performance and results.
Never Use Lighter Fluid
Lighter fluids permanently contaminate your EGG with petrochemicals that taint the flavor of your food. Instead, use Big Green Egg All Natural SpeediLight™ Charcoal Starters or our Electric Charcoal Starter, both of which are odor-free and the fastest method of reaching a cooking temperature without any exposure to chemical fumes. Do not use charcoal briquettes, self-starting charcoal, or other similar products in an EGG.
Previous Big Green Egg cookouts leave behind a lot of leftover charcoal in the grill. Don’t let it go to waste! If you closed both the top and bottom openings after you finished cooking, the remaining charcoal can be reused. Before firing up the EGG, use an ash tool to rake the coals across the cast iron fire grate. The ash will fall through the holes of the grate and into the bottom of the EGG. Add charcoal if necessary to bring the level back to the top of the fire box.
Never quickly open a hot EGG all the way. Burping your EGG allows air to slowly and safely enter the dome, preventing any back draft or flare-ups that could cause a flash of heat to burn your hand. You should burp your EGG if you have been cooking at temperatures above 300°F/150°C. Be very careful when opening the dome. First, raise the lid an inch or two and pause to “burp” it before raising the dome completely. This will allow the sudden rush of oxygen to burn safely inside the EGG without causing injury.
Big Green Egg gives you total, precise temperature control right at your fingertips! You can grill, smoke, and bake your food at accurate temperatures by easily adjusting the patented air flow controls. The “Made in USA precision temperature gauge” provides accuracy to 750°F/ 400°C. Many indoor ovens cannot match this exactness!
The temperature control system of the Big Green Egg allows you to cook in every season and weather condition – even rain or snow! Thanks to its high-tech ceramic composition, an EGG will endure and maintain extreme temperature differences irrespective of the weather. However, be sure to close an unused EGG and never allow rain or snow to enter the cooker.
Should the interior of an EGG get wet, burn off any residue or moisture by drying it out completely and lighting a small amount of charcoal to no more than 350°F/ 177°C.
Simple to Start
The Big Green Egg reaches perfect cooking temperature and is ready to use in just minutes. Our 100% lump charcoal is made in the USA from only the best cuts of natural oak and hickory for superb performance and results. Lighting the charcoal is always quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to circulate efficiently. Use our natural charcoal starter or an electric starter … and never buy lighter fluid again!
Precise Temperature Control
Grill, smoke and bake on your EGG at exact temperatures by easily adjusting the patented air flow systems. You have total control over temperature at your fingertips, maintaining accuracy within a few degrees! The Made in USA temperature gauge provides precise readings to 750°F/ 400°C. Many indoor ovens cannot match the accuracy of the EGG’s temperature control!
Easy Clean Up
The Big Green Egg features a professional grade 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 – and ash build-up is minimal.
Safer to Use
The Big Green Egg is extremely safe to use as 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.
Among many features that make the Big Green Egg by far the best cooking device of its kind are the patented components and state-of-the-art ceramic technologies that provide unrivaled thermal properties, material quality and cooking performance! The materials used in each and every EGG have performed flawlessly in extreme conditions for decades, and many EGGs are passed down to the next generation. The Big Green Egg comes with a Best-In-Class limited lifetime warranty. It’s all about quality and performance.
