The EGGcessories

Tables, Mates, Nests and Covers

Our ceramic EGGs are heavy and not easily moved without a metal Nest or a wooden table, both available with casters. Either one raises the EGG® to a comfortable working height. Tables also provide convenient work space, as do EGG Mates, optional wooden fold-down shelves that attach to the Nest.

Long Tables

We have Long Cypress tables for the Medium, Large and XL EGGs. They are available with or without casters. The dimensions for the Long table are 59.5 inches x 24.5 inches and it is 32 inches tall. This size provides ample working and serving room right next to your EGG.

Lump Charcoal and Fire Starters

Natural Lump Charcoal

The EGG® will cook most efficiently using natural lump charcoal. Big Green Egg lump charcoal is made from a selection of 100% hardwoods. It burns hotter and cleaner and lights faster and easier than briquettes. The amount of ash produced is a fraction of what briquettes produce, which means less frequent ash removal is required. Use either our electric lighter or our natural fire starters and you'll be ready to cook in about 10 minutes; never use lighter fluid.

Fire Starters

Our Fire Starters are made from sawdust and paraffin and are very effective for quickly and easily lighting lump charcoal without imparting a chemical taste. A box contains 24 cubes. The Electric Starter, if you prefer that method of lighting, will light the charcoal in about eight minutes.

Plate Setters and Baking Stones

Plate Setters

The Plate Setter is used for indirect cooking on the Big Green Egg. It is a ceramic heat shield that functions by providing a barrier between the food and the fire. The design of the Plate Setter (a flat ceramic disc with three "legs") allows sufficient airflow around the surface while preventing the flames and direct heat of the fire from reaching the food. Nothing will contribute greater versatility to your outdoor cooking than adding a Plate Setter to your accessories collection.

The Plate Setter can be used several different ways, with the legs facing up or down. With the legs facing down, the legs rest directly on the Fire Ring and the Plate Setter provides a cooking surface at the lip level of the bottom half of the Big Green Egg. In this position you place a baking stone on top of the Plate Setter and, in effect, turn the Big Green Egg into a brick oven. This set-up is great for pizza, bread, pie or any other dish that you would bake. Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite on the Big Green Egg.

The Plate Setter can also be placed on the Fire Ring with the legs facing up. In this position, simply place the cooking grid on the three ceramic legs and turn your Big Green Egg into a convection oven. You can place a roast directly on the cooking grid or in a V-Rack. Clean up is easy because the ceramic Plate Setter is self cleaning from the heat inside the EGG®, but you can also set a Drip Pan directly on the Plate Setter.

In the legs up position, you can add one of several Grill Extenders to the cooking grid; you now have multiple levels of cooking. With the convection effect of the Plate Setter, all levels of meat will cook evenly without turning.

If you are cooking an oversized turkey on a Vertical Turkey Roaster, take out the Fire Ring and place the Plate Setter on the Fire Box with the legs up. This lowers the cooking surface to give you much more room for an extra large turkey.

Whether you are baking or roasting, the Plate Setter is a great EGGcessory and it should be one of the first supplementary purchases you make!

The Plate Setter for the XL is slightly different than the others. The XL Plate Setter has shorter legs to better fit the dome of the XL EGG. It can be used in the standard configuration or it can be inserted between the Fire Box and the Fire Ring to provide for more air flow if desired.
