Extra Large Plate Setter
Nothing will contribute greater versatility to your cooking repertoire than adding a Plate Setter to your EGG. It provides a heat barrier between the charcoal and the food, changing your EGG from direct cooking (normal grilling) to cooking with indirect heat for baking, roasting and slow cooking. The three-legged design of the Plate Setter allows heat to circulate around the EGG, like a convection oven, whilst preventing the direct heat of the fire from reaching the food. The Plate Setter can be used in two modes: with the legs down and a Baking Stone on top, or with the legs up and a stainless steel grid on top for roasting or slow cooking.
Extra Large Cast Iron Searing Grid (half-moon)
The Cast Iron Searing Grid has superior heat conductivity and can be used as an alternative to the Stainless Steel Grid. It cooks food evenly and creates perfect sear marks. You can also flip the grid over for a flatter searing surface for meat, fish or seafood. Perfect for meat lovers! Buy two half-moons for a full diameter.
Premium Ventilated Royal Mahogany Table Cover for the Extra Large Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg table covers are tailor made from a weatherproof, fire retardant, heavy-duty material which is easy to clean and provides your EGG with functional and aesthetically pleasing protection. The cover has a convenient handle for easy removal and fits over your EGG and table. The cover is ventilated at each end with a heavy duty zip for easy removal.
Allow the EGG to cool before covering. Please note, these covers are water resistant and not waterproof – they are designed to reduce the aging of your wood product from the harsh sun and rain and not keep it completely dry.
Large Charcoal Bag
The Big Green Egg natural lump charcoal is of a much higher grade than that of other brands which means that it will last longer and produce far superior results. It is made from 100% Oak and Hickory wood, and contains no by-products, chemical fillers or petroleum additives which would taint your food and the EGG. It lights quickly, burns hotter than briquettes, and produces less ash so cleaning is easy. Use in conjunction with Big Green Egg Natural Fire Starters for a quick and easy chemical-free cook. The Large Charcoal bag contains 9.07kg/20lb of natural lump charcoal.
About Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg is more than just a BBQ; it can be used to bake, roast, smoke, sear, grill, slow cook and more. No matter the method, food will not dry out thanks to the unique design of the Egg which locks moisture in and keeps it circulating around the food. With unlimited possibilities and cooking flexibility you can use it for the usual burgers and sausages or, if you’re feeling adventurous, for pizzas, roast chickens, smoked fish, pulled pork, smoked duck, scallops or even Christmas fruit cake and turkeys! The results are far superior to anything you can achieve on a normal BBQ and require minimal effort – just shut the lid and relax!
The Big Green Egg is made using high-tech ceramics developed for NASA which insulate to retain heat and moisture in a way never achieved on normal BBQs. The surface has an enamel coating which will not rust and protects the EGG from the elements – it can be left outside and cooked on all year round, come rain or snow! The surface also stays cooler than metal grills which makes it safer around children. The company are so confident in their product that the ceramics on Big Green EGG have a Limited Life Time guarantee.
These EGGs are redefining the way we barbecue and can now be seen in many Michelin star restaurants, which is true testament to their quality and versatility.
How to use the EGG
The Big Green Egg is designed to be left with the lid closed while cooking which makes it much easier for you to relax and enjoy the experience of barbecuing without constantly turning and tending. The BBQ lights quickly, without lighter fluid, and can be ready to cook within 15 minutes. It is also an incredibly fuel efficient way to barbecue so there is no need to add more charcoal whilst cooking.
Big Green Eggs are designed to run on natural lump charcoal which burns hotter and with fewer impurities than briquettes and doesn’t contain chemicals or fillers. Never use briquettes or lighter fluid in the Big Green Egg because their chemicals can be absorbed by the EGG and transfer these unnatural flavours into your food. Do not burn wood on your EGG.
”Burping” the EGG is an important technique which helps prevent flashbacks and potential burns, particularly when cooking at high temperatures. Lift the lid about 2 inches and bounce it up and down slightly for a few seconds, allowing the rush of oxygen to burn safely before opening the lid fully.
When you have finished cooking replace the dual-function metal top with the ceramic snuffer cap and close the bottom vents to put out the flames. The unburned charcoal can then be used the next time you cook. Items which are not protected by the durable enamel should be kept out of the elements – keep internal components inside the EGG and store the dual-function metal top internally to protect it from rusting when the EGG is not in use.
This video contains some helpful tips and tricks for using and cleaning your Big Green Egg. Be sure to follow all of the instructions that come with your EGG and you will enjoy a lifetime of barbecuing!
