Why Every Backyard Needs a Big Green Egg

The Big Green Egg surrounded by flowers and greenery.

Have you heard of the Big Green Egg? This isn’t something you need to hatch or make into an omelet. The Big Green Egg smoker is one of the best smokers on the market today, and it’s certainly something you should consider adding to your own backyard. Here are a few reasons why this grill needs to be your go-to grill for all of your barbeque and grilling needs.

What Is It?

The Big Green Egg is a kamado-style grill. That means it’s made out of ceramic instead of metal and that it can function as a grill, an oven, and a smoker. Kamado-style grills are fueled by charcoal. These unique grills trace their history back to Japan, where they were used thousands of years ago. While they were originally more of an urn-shape, the Big Green Egg’s design is, as the name suggests, much like an egg. You can use it to cook burgers, steaks, pork chops, chicken, ribs, pies, bread, and just about anything else you can think of.

It’s Fast and Fairly Clean

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Big Green Egg is that it takes less than 10 minutes to heat up and be ready to go. That’s faster than a number of other BBQs and smokers on the market. It’s also cleaner. The Big Green Egg produces much less ash than other charcoal grills, so there’s less to clean later.

There’s No Variable Temperature

Once your Big Green Egg has reached the temperature you’ve set, that’s where the temperature stays. This means your food will cook more consistently, and you won’t have to deal with one part of the meat being almost burnt while another part is cold. Everything will cook evenly and consistently, so you won’t have any complaints about the temperature of the food.

The heat doesn’t just come from the bottom, either. A traditional grill cooks food from the bottom-up, which is why you have to flip the food over several times. But you can’t flip bread or pizza, which is why you can’t make these things on a regular grill. The Big Green Egg, however, is ceramic, which means that the heat is absorbed by all parts of the egg and radiates back onto the food. Your pizza, bread, and other foods that can’t be flipped will cook just as they would in a brick oven. Ceramic is also a great insulator, so the heat will stay within the Egg instead of warming up the outside.

It’s Available in Many Sizes

Cooking for just yourself? Grab a mini-sized Big Green Egg and enjoy your meals without any waste. On the other hand, if you routinely host large backyard parties, you might want the XX-Large Big Green Egg, the biggest option available. It’s big enough to hold 35 to 40 burgers at once, while the mini option can cook two.
