What is the Big Green Egg?

Is it a barbeque, a kamado, an oven or a smoker?

The Big Green Egg is a barbeque, a smoker, a traditional oven and a pizza oven fuelled by pure, 100% natural lump charcoal.  With its easy-to-use design, high-spec ceramics and four different cooking modes, the Big Green Egg has been revolutionising the BBQ market since 1974.  From pizza to paella, or steak to seafood, the EGG enables you to grill, roast, bake and smoke like a professional, all year round and in every type of weather.
Combining proprietary processes and patented technology, the Big Green Egg is stronger, more durable and better insulated than any other outdoor cooker in the market. That’s why Big Green Egg is the leader in outdoor cookers and is used by hundreds of award winning chefs all over the globe.

What is the EGG made from?

The Big Green Egg is made from best-in-class ceramics that possess unrivalled thermal properties. The ceramic composition of the EGG makes it number one for fuel efficiency, heat retention and cooking performance. The EGG is made in Mexico using the same state-of-the-art production processes developed by NASA to produce heat shields for their shuttle program.
Big Green Egg ceramic has performed flawlessly in extreme conditions for decades. It can be used all year round, in all parts of the world, by Michelin star chefs, BBQ enthusiasts and home cooks alike. In fact the EGG is valued so highly today, that it continues to be handed down from one generation to the next.
