The Food Barn

“There’s simply no better way to roast a chicken; an oven doesn’t come close to the flavours you get with charcoal. And because the Egg heats consistently and is controllable, you get a chicken with a lovely crisp skin and moist, tender meat inside.” …more

“I love cooking meat but I know friends who are cooking pizzas and all sorts of things on their Eggs. I like to cook ostrich or fish as a starter with the Egg good and hot, then sear a large piece of meat, lower the temperature and leave it for  hours until it’s literally falling off the bone.”  …more

Relais & Chateaux

“I love my Egg – it’s so versatile and controllable. Definitely a good investment for anyone who wants to get excellent results from their outdoor cooking. You don’t have to be a chef to use one, once you get the hang of it, anyone can use it and start experimenting with the other features.” …more

“With the Egg, I can set the temperature exactly and it will do its thing for hours and hours on a really small amount of charcoal.  I get the brisket in first thing in the morning and by the time evening rolls around that meat is just falling off the bone.”…more

“It’s the closest thing I’ve found to a tandoori oven without actually being a tandoor as it is capable of reaching very high temperatures.  The result is really delicious.”…more
