The Big Green Egg is designed to be low-maintenance, and it essentially cleans itself during day-to-day use. However, it’s a good idea to give it a deep clean from time to time, so that it continues to operate at its peak performance.
After each use, close the dome and the vents to allow the heat to burn off the residue left from cooking. Before your next use, remove any debris that is left over. When you notice a build-up of grease and debris on the drum, it’s time for deep cleaning. Because the Big Green Egg is porous, you won’t use cleaners or water, which will soak into the ceramic and affect taste and performance. Scrape the sides with a ball of aluminum foil to remove as much of the surface staining as possible. Next, empty the ash chamber and heat the grill up to about 600 degrees, allowing it to burn for about an hour. Once it is cool, clean the ashes again, and your Big Green Egg is ready for use.
