Big Green Egg - MiniMax

Key information

The Big Green EGG is a modern design classic which allows you to create restaurant standard food in your outside space. The MiniMax is ideal for those with a balcony and adventure lovers. The portable barbecue is the perfect solution for those looking for great tasting food on the beach or camping.  Ready to cook in 12 minutes, the EGG is so much more than a barbecue, it is an oven, smoker and grill, more importantly, it can be a way of life. There is a reason Soto decided to only stock one barbecue.

The EGG can self-clean or ‘carbon clean’.  Fire it up as normal and get it to 300˚C. Let it burn for a good 15-20 minutes and it'll clean itself like a self-cleaning oven

Ways to cook

A roast with the most

Convection cooking with charcoal. As heat is deflected around your EGG you can roast at a stable, even temperature. Think roast chicken or pork belly; crisp skin, crackling and deliciously moist meat. Perfect for vegetables and whole fish too.

Low & Slow
Take it slow

Turn the temperature down, pour a drink and let the EGG do the hard work for you. Slow cooking is an indirect cooking mode that allows you to break down fats to create tender lamb, succulent brisket and so much more.

A bakers oven

With the EGG'S ConvEGGtor in place, and the addition of a Baking Stone, you can match the results achieved in a wood-fired oven. This means crisp pizza bases, crusty sourdough loaves, or even a flaky-based tarte tatin.

On the grid

Even in its classic barbecue form, the EGG excels. With the ability to crank up the heat and use a range of cooking surfaces, you can ensure your steaks, fish and vegetables acheive restaurant level results.

Holy smoke

Bring the temperarture down, add a few woodchips to your charcoal, and watch as the smoke circulates around the dome of your EGG, adding a delicate flavour to a whole host of barbecue favourites.

Pan Cooking
Flavour lock

Enhance your favourite chilli or stew, add depth to your weekend eggs and make sauces to remember by cooking them over fire on your EGG. Keep the Dome closed and lock the flavour in.

Big Green EGG

Owning a Big Green EGG can be a lifestyle. The patented ceramics mean alfresco cooking is an activity that can be enjoyed all year round. It takes minutes to heat up meaning mid-week meals can be as delicious as weekend feasts. A Big Green EGG is for those who have a passion for the finer things in life.

The Big Green EGG story began in the 1970’s but the technology has ancient routes. Founder Ed Fischer first discovered kamado style cookers during World War 2 when posted in Asia and was impressed by the flavour these cookers created. Later, in the 1970’s when looking to diversify his pin ball machine business for the summer months, he started to import Japanese kamados. Striving for excellence he developed his own cooker using contemporary production techniques and materials. Partly due to the ceramics, which use technology developed by NASA, these ancient, traditional clay ovens were further developed into special, fully fledged outdoor cookers. 

The current generation of Big Green Eggs is the result of a combination of ancient wisdom and innovative technology.

It is an oven too

So much more than a barbecue or something only used in the summer, the EGG is a convection oven, perfect for an outside kitchen. Using the enclosed ConvEGGtor, heat is circulated around the EGG rather than directly onto the grill. Bake bread and pizza, smoke salmon and get ready for the best roast chicken you've ever tasted.
