Track and adjust the temperature of your Big Green Egg with this handy device that neatly clips onto the draft door, where two wires feed into the Egg. One wire ends with a clip that connects to the cooking grid, allowing the device to measure the ambient temperature inside the Egg. The other ends with a probe for inserting into your meat so you can finish cooking when it reaches the ideal temperature of your choice. The device contains a small but efficient fan. When the EGG Genius detects that the temperature needs to be increased, the fan automatically sends extra air flow into the Egg to stoke the flames, and stops the airflow when the temperature needs to be decreased. Once finished cooking, you'll receive a notification; the EGG Genius will keep your food warm without overcooking. In the case of a power outage or disconnection, the unit continues running at the saved temperature until the WiFi reconnects. The industrial-duty thermometer probes provide accurate readings of up to 260°C. Suitable for all sizes of the Big Green Egg.
Why we love it
'Ideal for when you're cooking food low and slow, or have a large piece of meat like a Christmas turkey, or when the weather isn't ideal and you'd rather stay indoors until it clears.'
About The Brand
Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg Company was founded by Ed Fisher in 1974 and is based in Tucker, Georgia, USA. Their signature product is a kamado-style ceramic charcoal barbecue that is a very versatile cooking device which can grill, bake, smoke or slow-cook your food. Ed discovered kamado cookers when he was a serviceman based in Japan, and was so impressed with these cookers he introduced them back home.
The Big Green Egg is manufactured from a ceramic, partly developed by NASA, that is designed to reflect heat and to allow temperatures of up to 650°C, making restaurant-quality bread or pizza easy to achieve at home. The temperature inside the Big Green Egg can be regulated between 70°C and 350°C, maintained to the degree even when the outdoor temperature is below freezing.
The Big Green Egg is produced in several sizes and with numerous bases, tables, shelves and accessories to create your ideal setup, and the company sells various barbecue accessories, from lump charcoal to expanding shelves, that are optimised for their grills.Shop Big Green Egg
