How To Get Your Big Green Egg Started

When filling your EGG we recommend using Lump Charcoal, we carry Big Green Egg natural charcoal in both our Alamo and Blackhawk locations. This video will show you how to properly fill your EGG. Make sure you never use Lighter Fluid, you don’t need it and you don’t want that taste in your food.

How to Correctly Light Your Big Green Egg

The Big Green Egg reaches cooking temperature and is ready to use in just minutes with natural lump charcoal. Lighting the charcoal is quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to work like a fireplace. Use a natural charcoal starter or an electric starter and never buy lighter fluid again.

How to Best Control The Temperature Of Your Big Green Egg

You can grill, smoke and bake at exact temperatures by easily adjusting the patented air flow controls. You have total control over temperature at your fingertips, maintaining accuracy within a few degrees! The Made in USA precision temperature gauge provides accuracy to 750° F / 400° C. Many indoor ovens cannot match the EGG’s temperature control and accuracy!

Re-Use Your Charcoal

You will find that much of the charcoal you started out with for your previous cookout was not consumed. If you closed both the top and bottom openings when your finished cooking, the remaining charcoal can be reused. Before firing up the EGG, use an ash tool to rake the coals across the cast iron fire grate; the ash will fall through the holes in the grate and into the bottom of the EGG. Add charcoal if necessary to bring the level back to the top of the fire box.
