History and Information on the Big Green Egg Grill

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 18, 2011
A keystone of backyard cookouts across the nation, the Big Green Egg barbecue is configured for amateur and master chefs who are serious about the caliber of their cooked meat. Based on ancient design precepts, the cooker uses dense ceramic walls with a build similar to that of an egg to hold in heat and reduce charcoal use. The manufacturers claim a 20 pound bag of charcoal will run the Big Green Egg for four to six months.

The modern and updated version is actually based on a 3,000 year old Nipponese cooker called the Mushikamado. When an American airline pilot brought the traditional engineering back to the United States, he dubbed it the Kamado. In 1974, BGE began producing outdoor barbecues based on the Kamado's design principle and ceramic structure. The Big Green Egg combines grilling, barbecuing, and smoking powers for any kind of meat, fish, or veggies. Mufflers allow for precise control of the temperature from 50 degrees to 750 degrees. Smoking occurs at low temperatures between 150 and 250 degrees, whereas barbecuing commonly is executed at much hotter temperatures.

Many barbecue lovers claim the grill produces juicier, more tender meat since the ceramic exterior holds in moisture better than metal grills. Like other grills, the Egg comes with a variety of grill sizes, from 13 inches in grill diameter to 24 inches in grill diameter. The cooker is designed to allow for easy lighting even with strong winds, as well as easy charcoal replenishment and removal.

Give Dad The Perfect “Turkey Grillin’ Machine” For Thanksgiving

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 11, 2010

It happens every year.  The turkey owns your oven and you are out of oven spaceThe Fireplace Showcase has your answer.  The XL EGG grill which is large enough to grill TWO 20-lb birds for you this Holiday season.  Maybe you are not doing turkey this year.  The XL EGG will easily do 12 steaks at a time.  She really is a grillin’ machine.  For many years the Large EGG was our most popular size. It has substantial capacity (one 20-lb turkey, 6 chickens, or 8 steaks), but as consumers increased the frequency of their outdoor cooking, they discovered that entire meals could be cooked over the coals. We realized there was a substantial demand for an even bigger EGG so we developed the XL Big Green Egg.

With any great product come customized product accessories.  Be sure to check out our Green Egg accessories to include 3Tier Racks, Flexible Skewers, cookbooks and more.
