The Top 5 Reasons We Love Big Green Egg

When it comes to outdoor cooking and grilling, the Big Green Egg stands as a legendary and beloved name. This iconic ceramic kamado-style grill has captured the hearts of grillmasters and food enthusiasts around the world. Its distinctive design and exceptional performance have made it a favorite among backyard cooks and professional chefs alike. Here at West Coast BBQ Shop, we are proud to be the first platinum Big Green Egg dealer in San Diego County and we’re here to show you what we love about cooking on a Big Green Egg!


One of the standout features of the Big Green Egg is its incredible versatility. This all-in-one cooker allows you to grill, smoke, bake, roast, and even sear at temperatures ranging from low and slow to blazing hot. Whether you want to slow-cook a tender brisket, smoke a rack of ribs, bake a wood-fired pizza, or sear a perfectly juicy steak, the Big Green Egg has got you covered. Its precise temperature control and excellent heat retention make it a versatile cooking companion for a wide range of culinary adventures.

Superior Heat Retention

The Big Green Egg’s ceramic construction is the secret behind its exceptional heat retention. The thick ceramic walls and the air-tight seal of the grill help maintain a consistent temperature for extended periods, even in extreme weather conditions. If you are wondering just how seriously Big Green Egg takes the development of their cooking materials, consider that the ceramic used in a Big Green Egg was developed in part by NASA. Yes, that NASA. This means that you can cook for hours without worrying about temperature fluctuations. The heat retention also leads to improved fuel efficiency, as the charcoal burns more slowly, making the Big Green Egg an economical choice in the long run. Don’t just take out word for it.

Unmatched Flavor

Grilling enthusiasts often rave about the unmatched flavor the Big Green Egg imparts to their dishes. The combination of charcoal cooking and the ceramic construction results in a unique and smoky flavor profile that is hard to replicate with other grills. The natural lump charcoal used in the Big Green Egg adds a distinct taste to the food, enhancing its overall deliciousness. Whether it’s a succulent piece of chicken, a beautifully charred vegetable medley, or a mouthwatering seafood feast, the Big Green Egg elevates the flavor to new heights. And for those who insist on the convenience of a gas grill, we can’t fault you but we do recommend checking out just how easy it is to light up a Big Green Egg!

Durability and Longevity

Investing in a Big Green Egg means investing in a grill that will last for years, if not decades. The high-quality ceramic construction, along with the stainless steel cooking grids and hardware, ensures durability and longevity. The materials used are resistant to rust, corrosion, and even fading from the sun. The Big Green Egg is built to withstand the elements, making it a reliable and long-lasting companion for all your outdoor cooking adventures. Even with all of those features meant to stand the test of time, Big Green Egg takes it a step further by offering a lifetime warranty on all Big Green Egg cookers.
