Burping the Big Green Egg

For safety reasons, it's important to "burp" or slowly vent the Big Green Egg when you open the dome. Slowly crack it open to allow incoming air to slowly enter the EGG and prevent flashbacks.

Why Buy an Egg?

As Big Green Egg has evolved over the years, significant changes have been made to keep it miles ahead of anything else on the market -state-of-the art ceramics, a wide range of easily adjusted cooking temperatures, a stainless steel cooking grid and a permanent porcelain glaze to preserve our signature green color.
