The Fireplace Company became an official supplier of Big Green Egg’s in May 2015. This decision, as with any others they take over products to sell, was not taken lightly. A serious amount of market research went into sourcing what they consider to be the best charcoal grill on the market.
And these Egg’s are so much more than that.
In this post they share the eight reasons why these outdoor cookers have transformed the barbecuing experience and highlight why you should consider investing in one.
1. Heat retention
The air-tight ceramic cooking chamber retains the heat from just a small quantity of charcoal, for up to 20 hours, which ensures the food remains moist.
The ceramic Plate Setter, which sits between the coals and the grill inside the chamber, helps circulate the heat and prevent burning, meaning you can cook pizzas, fish, burgers and pretty much anything else! Flip it the other way round and you have created a slow cooking environment (or low and slow as they say now) because it acts as a barrier between the food and the heat. You can even cook directly on the chamber and with temperatures up to 400C, this can replicate a Tandoor.
3. Precise temperature control
As mentioned above temperature can soar up to 400C, but the beauty of the Egg is that you can slow cook by reducing the heat to circa 100C. You have a thermometer on the lid and patented vents. This control make the Egg’s perfect for entertaining – taking the stress out of outdoor cooking.
4. Lifetime guarantee
Each Egg comes with a lifetime guarantee, so although these are by no means the cheapest outdoor cooking solutions on the market (prices start at £550 for the smallest Egg in the range), you will only need to buy one once.
5. Ease and speed
Unlike traditional charcoal barbecues where you have to wait for the coals to turn white, with an Egg you can start cooking in minutes. And lighting it is a piece of cake too, no lighter fluid required.
The heat source is protected and whilst the ceramic surface does get warm to touch from the outside, it’s nowhere near as potentially dangerous as your traditional barbecue.
Once you’ve chosen your Egg, there are plenty of accessories to choose from which means you can create the Egg that suits your precise requirements.
8. Delicious food
The food stays moist and can’t be burnt. This sounds like barbecue heaven right?
Best charcoal grill ever?
