If you are a first-time owner of a Big Green Egg grill, then the following information and maintenance tips are for you.

A low-maintenance outdoor grill

The goal of home furnishing stores in Batesville, AR is to sell stellar products to their customers, including well-made outdoor grills. When you invest in a Big Green Egg grill, the first thing you’ll notice about it—besides its hard-to-miss green exterior color—is that it’s pretty low maintenance. The inside stays relatively clean, due most in part to the airtight design of the device. It uses the remaining conductive heat left inside after cooking to burn off food residue. No more soaking and scraping required!

Here are some maintenance tips to keep your Big Green Egg in great shape for the long haul:

  • Clean out the lower fire chamber: Because Big Green Egg natural lump charcoal burns cleanly, you’ll notice that it doesn’t leave much ash. Still, the lower fire chamber needs to be cleaned out using the ash tool and ash pan after every few uses to prevent airflow blockages. Wait for the unit to cool completely before you do any type of cleaning.
  • Regular thorough cleaning: When your Big Green Egg needs a more thorough cleaning, remove the cooking grid and the fire box and fire grate. Clean out any debris buildup from the small holes.
  • Clean the DFMT: Take the Dual Function Metal Top (DFMT) and place it inside the Big Green Egg when you’re done cooking. The residual heat will keep it clean and the metal top in good condition, but be sure to put the ceramic lid on to keep rain from getting inside the Big Green Egg.
  • Avoiding using water to clean: The inside of your Big Green Egg is designed to be almost self-cleaning. Note that the ceramic is porous and will absorb water, so do not use water to clean the inside of your Big Green Egg. Just close the lid and vents after grilling and the remaining heat will burn off food residue.
  • Wipe the outside, brush the grill: Occasionally, use a gentle household cleaner to wipe off the outside. Then, brush clean the cooking grid, preferably with a bristle-free brush. To preserve your Big Green Egg, always cover it when it’s not in use.
  • Inspect fasteners and the felt gasket: You should inspect all grill fasteners for tightness from time to time. Check the metal bands that secure the dome, and the nuts, bolts and hinge bolt on the hardware fittings on the nest, mates, casters, handle and other areas. Look at the felt gasket that lines the dome and the base of the Big Green Egg. Replace it if it’s worn out.
