Big Green Egg introduced covered kamado-style grills to the West in the 1970s, and there’s no comparison to their function, quality and durability. This iconic barbecue grills, roasts, bakes, slow-cooks, and smokes. Patented airflow technology lets it go from 0˚C to 300˚C in 20 minutes, and an integrated thermometer gives you control over the heat. The NASA-grade ceramic sets it apart, allowing it to retain heat beautifully for longer, more consistent cooking and fuel efficiency (with one batch of charcoal, a large EGG can cook for up to 24 hours). Rain or shine, nothing gets in the way of the Big Green Egg’s performance. These grills are built to last a lifetime, with spare parts readily available for long-term care and maintenance, and a wide range of accessories to make the most out of this veritable outdoor kitchen.
Why we love it
There’s simply no comparing the Big Green Egg, especially when it comes to flavour. The extraordinary quality of the ceramic, which many competitors skimp on, locks in moisture and supercharges the flame-grilled charcoal taste. It’s impossible to tire of the Egg, which our store teams can attest to after hundreds of demos. It only gets better with time.

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
