Lighting the charcoal is always quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to circulate efficiently. Use a natural charcoal starter or an electric starter and never buy lighter fluid again! The EGG reaches its optimal temperature within minutes when using the Big Green Egg brand of lump charcoal, made in the USA from select cuts of oak and hickory for superb performance and results.
Never Use Lighter Fluid
Lighter fluids permanently contaminate your EGG with petrochemicals that taint the flavor of your food. Instead, use Big Green Egg All Natural SpeediLight™ Charcoal Starters or our Electric Charcoal Starter, both of which are odor-free and the fastest method of reaching a cooking temperature without any exposure to chemical fumes. Do not use charcoal briquettes, self-starting charcoal, or other similar products in an EGG.
Using Your EGG!The Big Green EGGis extremely safe and hazard-free when used according to safety guidelines,and will provide years of trouble-free use and enjoyment. It is the user’s responsibility to maintain safe operation of the EGG and to exercise reasonable standards of care at all times.
Do not attempt to modify or use non-Big Green Egg components inside your EGG as you may void the warranty, and modifications can lead to damage or injury. Don’t forget to read the Warranty and Register your EGG!
To fill your EGG,we recommend using Big Green Egg Lump Charcoal,made from a selection of 100% hardwoods. It will heat quickly and burn cleanly.
This video will show you how to properly fill your EGG. Make sure you never use lighter fluid or quick light charcoal products – you don’t want it to taint the flavor of your food.
Do NOT Cook at High Temperatures Your First UseThis may damage the gasket before it can properly seat itself. Your first few cooks should be under 350°F/177°C to allow the gasket adhesive to fully cure and adhere to the EGG. If you do damage the gasket, you can easily replace it with a self-adhesive high temperature replacement gasket available from any Big Green Egg dealer.
