Big Green Egg FAQs

Big Green Eggs transformed grilling as we knew it roughly 50 years ago. Since then, millions of grilling enthusiasts have enjoyed creating edible masterpieces via this kamado-style cooker. Are you ready to transform your grilling game? Let us answer a few frequently asked questions first:

What is a Big Green Egg made from?

A Big Green Egg is made from ceramic composite materials. Ceramic is any non-metallic mineral (i.e., clay) that is hardened by heat. The ceramic material insulates the Big Green Egg, allowing it to cook food at even temperatures, retain moisture, and keep the heat inside. Additionally, ceramic material does not get as hot as a metal barbecue, which increases its safety features.

How long will the Big Green Egg last?

As long as you use and care for the Big Green Egg according to the instruction manual, your Big Green Egg will last for decades! Further, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing the Big Green Egg has a Limited Lifetime Guarantee.

How many hours of cooking should I expect from one bag of charcoal?

We advise our Egg enthusiasts to only use the recommended fuel source – Big Green Egg 100% Natural Lump Charcoal. One, 9-kilogram bag of the Natural Lump Charcoal lasts for roughly 80 hours of cooking time. It may be more or less than 80 hours depending on what you’re cooking and how often you’re using the Big Green Egg.
