The Big Green Egg was derived from an ancient clay cooking device known as a “kamado”. Originally a clay vessel with a lid, today’s EGG® is a modern ceramic marvel known for producing amazing culinary results for novice and experts alike for over forty years!

As Big Green Egg has evolved over the years, significant changes have been made to keep it miles ahead of anything else on the market – state-of-the-art ceramics, a wide range of easily adjusted cooking temperatures, a stainless steel cooking grid and a permanent porcelain glaze to preserve our signature green color. A team of research and development specialists are continuously looking for new ways to make Big Green Egg even better.

From appetisers to entrees to desserts, the Big Green Egg will exceed all of your expectations for culinary perfection … and with SEVEN convenient sizes in South Africa to choose from, there is a Big Green Egg to fit any lifestyle!

Grill – Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling – even at 400º C – is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavour-packed crust unmatched by other grills.

Oven – Using the indirect cooking method with a convEGGtor, the Big Green Egg bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, puddings and pies better than your kitchen oven … you may never cook indoors again! The Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture so well that foods don’t dry out! Poultry, lamb, beef and vegetables are naturally tastier because the juices and flavours stay locked inside.

Smoker – The insulating ceramics of the Big Green Egg allow you to precisely control the temperature even at low heat. A controllable 93 to 177°C gives succulent results with turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs or any of your favourite cuts, infusing them with the aromatic wood smoke flavour. Want to slow cook at low heat for sixteen to eighteen hours … no problem!
