If you prefer beef, the big green machine will cook 24 steaks or 40 burgers. Take the rib challenge with 20 racks of ribs. With our system, everyone can eat hot food at one time and not in shifts or by holding food until some food is cold or overcooked. Your events will be the envy and the talk of the town..
After your guests taste the food from your grilling, they will have questions about the smoker grill. Be ready to provide the facts about the big green egg grill. Its molded composition, ceramics bonded with a green nontoxic glaze that will last virtually forever. There is a hinged band for easy one-handed opening and closing, cushioned gaskets for improved insulation and a heavy-duty porcelain-coated grid for easy cleaning. The ceramic shell of the big green egg is strong and able to withstand a wide range of temperatures so you don’t have to worry about it cracking if you heat it up on a freezing cold day. What makes this grill work so well is that the heat is held inside. Even at its highest temperature, the outside remains relatively cool (though I wouldn’t go putting my hand on it). Because of this efficiency of the design, you will find that you don’t use as much charcoal as you would on comparably sized grills. When you are done cooking you can close up the vents to stop the remaining charcoal inside from burning and hence save it for your next cookout.
Heat is controlled on this grill by a vent in the bottom of the unit and another one on the top. These vents are simple to use but give you a great deal of control. In fact, I find that you get better heat control on this charcoal grill than you do on most gas grills.
