Enter the Big Green Egg – a prime outdoor cooking companion 365 days a year.

It’s all about heat retention and this versatile ceramic grill is a master of insulation, holding onto heat like a winter coat for your feasts cooked over fire.


Here’s why it’s our go-to for winter cooking:


Steady Temperature Control and Heat Retention

Winter winds may howl, but the Big Green Egg stands resilient. Its ceramic construction, combined with a precision airflow system, ensures you have full control over temperatures. Whether you’re slow-roasting a hearty stew or searing a sizzling steak, the Egg’s ability to maintain steady temperatures means your winter grilling adventures are bound to be a success.


The elements play a big part in changing the temperature of the fire, so to remove any guess work, a thermometer gives you accurate results – feast after feast. There’s lots of different temperature probes out there, but our firm favourite is the Thermapen, available in a variety of colours and complexities!


Low and Slow Winter Warmers

On a cold rainy day or a chilly night, there is nothing more comforting than a hot EGG cooking you a warm meal. Cooking with the dome closed means that heat and moisture stay inside so foods don’t dry out – which also means that you don’t need to stand in the cold and hover over the EGG while it cooks! It’s a game-changer for those slow-cooked winter comfort foods, with larger pieces of meat also retaining their heat better as they are carved.


Why not give our Hunter’s Pheasant recipe a go, for a super succulent wild pot roast to be eaten with a big winter salad and a side of your favourite pickles. Or if Korean flavours are your cup of tea – our smoked Wild Venison Shank Ssambap is  great for hands off feasting, leaving you time to enjoy and drink with your friends and family


All-Weather Benefits

Thanks to its incredible thermal efficiency, the outside temperature doesn’t affect the EGG, even when the temperature drops below freezing. It heats up and is ready to use in minutes, without worries about empty gas tanks or moving parts that can freeze up, rust or wear out.


No power? No problem. Even in the worst elements, all-natural lump charcoal lights quickly and effortlessly – ensuring nothing stands between you and your meal!


With the Big Green Egg, there’s no need to limit your grilling adventures to the warmer months. Winter barbecues, festive gatherings or solo experiments – the Egg is ready for it all. Embrace the chill, fire up the Egg, and let the winter feasts begin!
