The Big Green Egg barbecue has incredible versatility, which makes it the highest quality outdoor grill you can purchase. The Big Green Egg is a ceramic “kamado” style barbecue that makes use of thick ceramic walls to maintain even temperature, prevent your food from drying out and burn less fuel while grilling. The exceptional design of the Big Green Egg makes it possible for you to use your ceramic cooker as a regular barbecue, a slow smoker, or even an outdoor oven.
The design of the Big Green Egg allows you grill at temperatures up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it easy to cook perfect steaks, pork chops, or hamburgers. Also, the dome configuration of the Big Green Egg retains moisture very well, allowing you to effortlessly grill fish without drying it out. You can also grill delicious vegetables on the Big Green Egg by using a perforated grid top. The finest trait of the Big Green Egg is its capability to cook at extremely high temperatures, allowing you to reproduce the traditional “steak house” searing technique. The Big Green Egg will, without a doubt, turn out some of the finest steaks you’ve ever had.
The Big Green Egg can also be used as a slow smoker. By making use of the Plate Setter accessory to generate an indirect heating source and almost completely closing the draft doors to control the fire’s oxygen supply, the Big Green Egg is able to slow smoke at temperatures as low as 200 degrees Fahrenheit. The Big Green Egg is superb at smoking turkeys, pork shoulders, and even beef brisket. The excellent design of the Big Green Egg and the heat retention of the ceramic walls provide enhanced fuel efficiency than a regular grill. With the Big Green Egg you can grill for over 17 hours straight without lifting the lid or replenishing the fuel or reigniting the fire.
Making use of the Plate Setter to make an indirect heat source and letting the fire reach higher temperatures, the Big Green Egg becomes a amazing outdoor oven. Bake bread, pies, and casseroles simply and feel good knowing that they won’t dry out on the grill. You can use a pizza stone to bake pizzas that equal any brick oven style restaurant. The Plate Setter is one of my favorite Big Green Egg accessories.
The remarkable adaptability of the Big Green Egg even allows you to grill in the winter! There aren’t many other barbecues that can make that claim. Simply put, the Big Green Egg is the one barbecue that can do it all; grill, smoke, and bake. If you are thinking of purchasing a new grill you should earnestly consider the Big Green Egg. Be careful though, these things are a little expensive. Make sure you can afford the Big Green Egg prices before you dive in!
