Big Green Eggs can be used for smoking or grilling and with the addition of accessories can bake bread or cook a pizza. Big Green Eggs are manufactured in seven sizes with the largest being able to cook 35-40 burgers, 14-16 whole chickens, 18-20 steaks, 20 rib racks, or 1 suckling pig.
In addition to the outer ceramic shell there is draft opening to provide air to the ceramic firebox in the base of the unit. There is a daisy wheel damper unit on the top to give air flow control and therefore temperature regulation. An accessory called a plate setter can be placed above the firebox: this prevents direct cooking of the food when using the unit as a smoker. Between the base and the lid is a gasket made of felt that maximises moisture retention during long cookouts.
