Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg is a modern-day evolution of the ancient cookers. Its design is modeled on the clay cooking vessels first seen during the Chinese Qin Dynasty and then used by the Japanese beginning in the 3rd century.
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 food cooked by this method tasted, and he began to import them for his friends and associates. When Ed Fisher first opened the Big Green Egg store in Atlanta in 1974, he sold a simple cooking device made of fire-clay, which was based on the same design and materials that had been used for thousands of years.
So, having now become committed to developing a company to produce and market these amazing cookers, Ed set out to make the best one ever created. His efforts gained notice as he refined the composition of the ceramics and aligned the Big Green Egg Company with a state-of-the-art factory to manufacture his products in the hands of skilled ceramic artisans. 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 holds today.
Big Green Egg is now the world’s largest producer and international distributor of the highest-quality ceramic cooking system. From Ed’s original Big Green Egg, the company has grown to include seven sizes of the EGG, and hundreds of accessories and related products designed to make cooking just about anything on a Big Green Egg fun and entertaining.
