Outdoor Cooking Must-Have: Big Green Egg

Big Green Egg

Summer has arrived in California and that means one thing: grilling season is officially here. If you haven't yet prepared your outdoor space for barbecues and poolside parties, then it's time to head into your Walnut Creek home appliance store to check out backyard essentials like the Big Green Egg. Let's take a closer look at this must-have outdoor cooking item.

Versatility In Cooking
Those who have made the switch from a conventional cooker to the Big Green Egg can't rave enough about its capacity to prepare food using a variety of preparation methods. With this barbecue, you can grill the perfect steak, bake a casserole, or even smoke the perfect leg of lamb. Its range and its size allow it to take on tasks that are impossible with standard cookers, such as grilling 24 burgers at a time or cooking two whole turkeys for a tasty Thanksgiving dinner.

Physical Features
The Big Green Egg comes in five convenient sizes, making it a great addition to backyards both big and small. The standard Egg sold at your Concord appliance store features a 24-inch diameter grid that allows it to heat food on a 452 square inch cooking space. At 205 pounds, the Big Green Egg is sturdy and reliable, meaning you never have to worry about it tipping over and injuring someone, as is a common concern with grills that are made top-heavy with the addition of heavy foods.

Advantages Over Standard Grills
One of the biggest advantages of bringing home a Big Green Egg from your appliance store is that it provides you with greater control over the cooking temperature. Since the Egg uses less fuel to reach a desired temperature, it requires less oxygen. The less oxygen that your food is exposed to, the more moisture it can retain and the juicier and tastier it will be.
