When its time to fire up the grill, fire up the best one we’ve found.
Early cultures discovered that food tasted better when the fire and food were contained inside a dome-shaped, earthen vessel. Evidence of these early prototypes of the Big Green Egg have been found by archeologists in the ruins of nearly every civilization around the world … except the Propanians, who preferred to scorch their meals using volcanic gasses, and the DriveThruians, who ate all their meals from take-out and quickly vanished from planet earth.
American serviceman and entrepreneur Ed Fisher was one of those guys who discovered the domed clay cooker while overseas. He was amazed at how much better the food tasted, and he began to import them sensing that there might be an interest back home. When Ed opened the first Big Green Egg store in Atlanta in 1974, he sold a simple clay cooker based on the same design and materials that had been used thousands of years ago. Despite the great results they produced, these original cookers were fragile and not durable after exposure to the elements.
Ed Fisher was fully committed to developing a company to produce and market these amazing cookers, and set out to make the best one that had ever been created.
As the EGG gained popularity, the company aligned with a state-of-the-art factory to manufacture its products in the hands of skilled ceramic artisans. Company engineers incorporated new types of ceramics, based on materials initially developed by NASA for the space program, and worked tirelessly to find ways to improve the design. The result was a far superior cooker that is stronger, more durable and provides better heat insulation than anything else on the market, a distinction the Big Green Egg is known for today.
We are pleased to be a stocking dealer of the Big Green Egg. We know once you taste the difference, you’ll be sold.
