Filling and Lighting

When filling your EGG, we recommend using Big Green Egg Lump Charcoal, made from a selection of 100% hardwoods. It will heat quickly and burn cleanly. Make sure you never use lighter fluid or quick light charcoal products – you don’t want it to taint the flavor of your food.

The Big Green Egg reaches cooking temperature and is ready to use in just minutes with the Big Green Egg brand of organic lump charcoal which is made in the USA from oak and hickory for superb performance and results. Lighting the charcoal is quick and easy, as the design of the Big Green Egg allows air flow to work like a fireplace. Use a natural charcoal starter or an electric starter and never buy lighter fluid again.
