just close the lid and the top and bottom drafts to extinguish the fire. You can reuse
about 80% of the charcoal. This feature alone will pay for your Big Green Egg® in a short

By adjusting the dampers, you can attain a temperature accuracy within two degrees. You

the temperatures you need. The optional heat gauge will give precise readings of
temperature, from 50° to 750°. We have included a cookbook with recipes and easy
instructions. You'll get great results from the start.
