The Big Green Egg is truly the “World’s Best Smoker & Grill.” The Green Egg’s unique design as a ceramic kamado produces some the best barbecue I’ve ever had.
But it also requires unique tools: Green Egg accessories, also known as “EGGcessories” to all you EGGheads out there 🙂
If you’re in the Minneapolis/St. Paul or Rochester area, swing in to one of our 7 appliance stores.
Otherwise, buy over $50 of any accessories, and we’ll ship for free within the contiguous U.S.!
Here are the must-have Big Green Egg accessories:
On a gas grill, you create indirect heat by only lighting the burners adjacent to your food. For indirect heat or Big Green Egg pizza and baked items (seriously tasty!), you’ll need a plate setter. Legs up, the plate setter sits under the grid for low and slow convection oven-like cooking. Legs down, the plate setter allows multiple levels of cooking and a surface for the baking stone. Because it’s ceramic (like the grill itself and the baking stone), we can’t ship the plate setter UPS. Locals only, sorry 😦
Big Green Egg cover
Even heavier than the massive ceramic grill is the Big Green Egg’s price. So protect your investment with a cover. Made of heavy-duty material, the Big Green Egg Cover also vents moisture to prevent bacterial growth.
A Big Green Egg Ash Tool is used to remove the ash that collects at the bottom of the Egg. Using the bar at the end of the Ash Tool, you simply pull the ash out of the Stainless Steel Draft Door into a fireproof receptacle that can be easily emptied. The Ash Tool also works as a rake to stir up the old charcoal and incorporate in fresh charcoal.
The Big Green Egg Grill Gripper is used to easily and safely remove the cooking grid from the Green Egg, even when it is hot. Or you can try picking it up yourself, and learn the hard way…
Bury a couple Big Green Egg Fire Starters cubes into your charcoal for easy lighting of the natural wood charcoal without a chemical taste. Fire Starters are made from sawdust and paraffin.
Because the Big Green Egg’s ceramic technology holds heat so well, it uses a very small amount of charcoal. This 20-lb bag of Big Green Egg natural charcoal will last about four to six months, even if you use your Egg several times per week! You’ll be able to reuse about 80% of the charcoal each time you grill.
Also, the natural charcoal is made from a selection of 100% hardwoods. It burns hotter and cleaner and lights faster and easier than briquettes. The amount of ash produced is a fraction of what briquettes produce, which means less frequent ash removal is required.
