FAQs

While you can use wood chunks or chips to smoke foods on your EGG, it is a charcoal barbecue. Using wood to fuel it could ause the ceramics to become tainted — so please avoid it.

Depending on your EGG and what temperature you plan to cook at, times can vary. However, a good benchmark is that the Large Big Green Egg should stay lit for a low & slow cook for 24 hours with one batch of charcoal. Remember to cook with the lid closed!

This part's easy, and you'll have the hang of it in no time.

  1. Fill the Firebox with Charcoal to just above the rim. Don’t be afraid of overloading your EGG – any unburned charcoal can be left and used next time. It's better to overload than underload!
  2. Light your EGG using a Big Green Egg Natural Fire Starter. Ruffle the edges a little to make lighting easier.
  3. Place a few pieces of charcoal over the Fire Starters to create a teepee shape. This will help the charcoal to get going faster.
  4. Open the Draft Door fully and leave your Big Green Egg open for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, you’ll notice the charcoal in the middle of your EGG is glowing.
  6. Now open your rEGGulator fully.
  7. Leave your EGG to heat for a further 2-5 minutes.
  8. Once the ceramics have warmed up, add your cooking surfaces. Wait a further 5-10 minutes, or until your EGG has reached your cooking temperature.
