The Big Green Egg is the finest BBQ smoker and grill money can buy, period. I own the xl egg and it has been an amazing piece of equipment from day one.
Eggs are very heavy duty, and very heavy. Mine weighs over 200 lbs. They are made of ceramic which holds in the heat. The design of the egg is perfect simplicity, with it’s air damper below (with ash screen for safety) and top mounted cast iron chimney that is fully adjustable, the egg performs like magic. you can get your egg to nearly 750 degrees for HIGH HEAT cooking, like making 2 minute thin crust pizza, or it can run at 250 degrees forever which allows you to make true Southern BBQ. Try this on a regular grill or smoker..aint gonna happen!
The egg is a superior grill as well, fire up some lump charcoal, toss on the heavy duty grill grate and you’re ready for grilling perfection. With the top down, the oven roasting effect combined with the high heat under your food produces a golden brown exterior and moist interior.
I literally could go on and on singing the praises of The Big Green egg, but I will leave you with this advice….GO BUY ONE RIGHT NOW…you will have no regrets!
