Why Big Green Egg Ceramic "Kamado" Style Grill Is Superior To Metal Charcoal Grills

Big Green Eggs

A kamado is a ceramic egg-shaped barbeque of Japanese origin. The ultimate combination of construction, manufacturing process and unparalleled ceramics gives the Big Green Egg a longer lifespan than comparable kamado barbeques. The advantages of Big Green Egg’s ceramic kamado-style grill makes metal charcoal grills look like a hot plate. Here’s why. 

4 Unique Cooking Methods

The Big Green Egg is very versatile, with 4 unique cooking methods available within one grill.  

High-Temp Grill

Sear steaks, chops, burgers, and seafood with a flavorful crust unmatched by metal charcoal grills. High-temp steakhouse chargrilling, even stir-frying, is so quick and easy you’ll look for reasons to eat at home!

Versatile Roaster

Gatherings are more memorable when you roast a juicy turkey, rack of lamb, or ham on a Big Green Egg. The superior cooking qualities produce the most flavorful roasts, braises, and stews you’ve ever tasted.

Low and Slow Smoker

The Big Green Egg’s insulating ceramics allow precise temperature control even at low heat. You can barbecue at low heat for 16 hours or longer, no problem! The Big Green Egg can do that on a single fill of natural lump charcoal. 

Outdoor Oven

The Big Green Egg can bake bread, casseroles, and desserts better than your kitchen oven. You can even make pizza on it!

Simple to Start

The Big Green Egg reaches the perfect cooking temperature and is ready to use in minutes. Lighting charcoal is always quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to circulate efficiently. 

Safer to Use Than Metal Charcoal Grills

The Big Green Egg is extremely safe to use as the ceramic surface doesn’t get as hot as a metal grill, and the heat source is protected within a ceramic fire box inside the base.

Precise Temperature Control

Grill, smoke, and bake on your Big Green Egg at exact temperatures by easily adjusting the patented air flow systems. You have total control over the temperature and can maintain accuracy within a few degrees! The Made in USA temperature gauge provides precise readings to 750 degrees F. Many indoor ovens cannot match the accuracy of the Big Green Egg’s temperature control.

Easy Clean-Up

The Big Green Egg features a professional-grade stainless steel cooking grid and an elegant green exterior with a lifetime glaze that maintains its good looks and wipes clean easily without chemical cleaners. Inside, residual heat burns away any grease build-up, just like a self-cleaning oven, and ash build-up is minimal.

Patented Technology

Among many features that make the Big Green Egg the best cooking device of its kind are the patented components and the state-of-the-art ceramic technologies that provide unrivaled thermal properties, material quality, and cooking performance. The materials used in each Big Green Egg have performed flawlessly in extreme conditions for decades, and many Eggs are passed down to the next generation. The Big Green Egg also comes with a best-in-class limited lifetime warranty.
