Wood Chunks are used to add individual smoke flavours to food and are best used for low and slow cooking as the larger pieces of wood will smoulder for longer, giving a sustained smoke to your food. Mesquite is popular in southern USA and has a tangy, smoky flavour. It works well with larger cuts of meat such as Brisket and Leg of Lamb. Pre-soak before use.

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
