Events - Chelsea Flower Show Product of the Year Finalist…

We’re delighted that the new Big Green Egg MiniMax has been shortlisted as a finalist for RHS chelsea Garden Product of the year, 2014.

The new MiniMax is the same height of the Mini EGG but wider than the small EGG. It therefore has a much larger cooking surface and firebox enabling the cooking capabilities of larger EGGs but in a portable package designed for urban balconies and gardens.

Some key points of the EGG are:

It saves landfill: The EGG saves natural resources. The durable patented ceramics ensure it’s a once-in-a-lifetime purchase unlike metal grills which rust and are thrown away every few years limited landfill resources.

Fuel Efficiency: One load of lump charcoal in the MiniMax  will last up to 12 hours versus 45 minutes in comparable metal BBQ’s. Our organic lump charcoal doesn’t contain petroleum, chemicals, artificial filters or binders so the all-natural ash can be added to your home compost pile to create a rich soil amendment for your garden.



Events - BGE Taxi at Turner & George Butchery, Clerkenwell

The Big Green Egg Taxi was cooking up a storm  last night alongside Richard Turner and the full gang from Turner & George in their official opening of their new butchery in Clerkenwell. Not only has the shop been refurbished beautifully but the produce really is out of this world. We thoroughly recommend a visit  in person or check out their online store, for your Christmas menu.

Events - National BraaiDay in South Africa!

With extreme diversity in culinary styles, what remains very constant — and nearly sacred — to South Africans, is braai, the South African version of a barbecue. Braai is, essentially, cooking meat over an open flame fueled by natural lump charcoal. And to South Africans, the cultural significance is so impactful that braaing is honored with its own day. On National Braai Day, South Africans spend the day with friends … cooking out.

EGGheads, of course, do it every day! We don’t wait around for one day a year to braai — we do it all year round! But, in order to keep the peace of the land, we do recommend you join the masses in celebrating Braai Day / Heritage Day on 24 September.

We’d love to see what you’re grilling on Braai Day. Please post your pictures at facebook.com/BigGreenEggSouthAfrica
