5 Reasons Why a Big Green Egg is Better Than a Traditional Grill

Barbecue dinners, kids playing in the pool, sunshine warming your skin… spring is here! Welcome this wonderful season with a new staple to your backyard oasis – a Big Green Egg, a ceramic kamado-style cooker. Discover five reasons why you should purchase a Big Green Egg instead of a traditional grill:

1. A Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture.

Unlike a traditional grill, a Big Green Egg’s design and material allows it to retain heat and moisture. Because of this, your dinner is full of flavor and perfectly juicy. A Big Green Egg protects the food’s natural flavor and cooks it evenly.

2. A Big Green Egg requires little start-up time.

Using the recommended fuel source – Big Green Egg 100% Natural Lump Charcoal – allows you to have a start-up time in as little as 15 minutes! Ditch your traditional grill that forces you to sacrifice precious time to get it to the desired temperature.

3. A Big Green Egg provides precise temperature control.

A traditional grill may have uneven temperature spots, unbeknownst to the cook! This poses a health risk, as some food may be cooked throughout while others are not. A Big Green Egg provides accurate temperature control, so all food is cooked evenly.

4. A Big Green Egg boasts safer surface temperatures.

While the inside of a Big Green Egg reaches temperatures worthy of cooking succulent steaks, the outside surface of a Big Green Egg stays cooler. We don’t recommend letting your kids cooking on your Big Green Egg, but its outside surface temperature is a bit safer than a traditional grill.

5. A Big Green Egg cooks a variety of foods.

Sure… your traditional grill can cook a steak, but can it grill a pizza?! A Big Green Egg is capable of cooking a variety of foods such as breakfast casseroles, traditional stuffing, pumpkin pie, beef stew, and smoked guacamole.
