What is the Big Green Egg?
Inspired by ancient ceramic cooking vessels from Asia, Big Green Egg launched more than 40 years ago, importing Japanese and Chinese clay ovens to the United States. Shortly after, they began manufacturing their own large, green clay grills. Since then, the Big Green Egg has become a cooking phenomenon, popular among chefs and foodies.
The Big Green Egg is part grill, part smoker and part oven. It seals tightly during cooking, retaining food’s moisture and releasing smoke, as needed, to maintain the proper cooking temperature. The Big Green Egg can be used to cook everything from a Porterhouse Steak to lobster tails to vegetables. It can smoke large cuts of meat, or even be used to bake a casserole or a cake.
What sets the Big Green Egg apart?
The Big Green Egg is manufactured from a ceramic composite originally developed by NASA. As such, the Big Green Egg has superior insulating qualities. The internal temperature of the Big Green Egg is unaffected by outdoor temperatures, meaning you can cook outdoors weather it’s 90 degrees or 20 degrees. As such, you can reap the benefits of cooking on your Big Green Egg year round.
The Big Green Egg also is an incredibly accurate cooking vessel. It allows you to regulate your cooking temperature within 1 degree, whether you’re smoking something at a low temperature or searing a steak. The insulating quality and unique shape imparts and intense and unique flavor on whatever you’re cooking.
