Yes, you can get many different Green Egg accessories. In this article we’ll give you a brief but pretty comprehensive rundown of what is out there for you to enhance your grilling, cooking, and smoking experience with this masterful piece of technology.
There is a wonderful ash pan specific to the Green Egg which was designed with a lot more thought than usually goes into other grill’s accessories. This thing is shaped like a short wide shovel, with a handy handle on its end for quick and safe removal. Stick it under the charcoal cooker and it will protect your patio from the falling ash.
Another of the Green Egg accessories is the so-called half-moon grids that are actually raised. This is manufactured so that you it takes up only half of the space of the whole cooking “surface”. (Hence the term half moon.) Seeing as it’s raised, it will leave the entire normal grill for cooking closer to the heat. Then you can just stick a few odds and ends up on the higher grid.
Green Egg Grill has developed a terrific (but not overwhelming) array of different shelves, and you can find custom tables for the green egg grill from a variety of sources. These attach to the outside of the EGG enabling a more versatile experience for the head chef. Slap some plates on a couple of the shelves and leave condiments or more meat to be cooked on the other shelf. You can buy as many or as few as you want, but I’d suggest getting two at least. They come in different sizes and capacities.
One of the most exquisite of the Green Egg Grill accessories is their three-tier rack and extender. This expands even more on the previous half-moon rack, because, well, it brings an extra level to the playing field. It actually increases your “cooking surface” by 200%. It’s a great way to save time and be more efficient, or to give different levels of heat to different food items, such as vegetables and steaks.
Then there’s the ash tool. (These guys have spared nothing.) It comes in small, medium, and large. It is not your ordinary ash remover and it will more successfully clean out all that gunk to clear up your Big Green Egg.
The temperature gauge is a must-have of this group of Green Egg accessories which will attach to the outside. This way you can get a better handle on your smoking, grilling, or even searing the meat as pleases you.
One of the most hilarious accessories has to be the digital probe thermometer. It looks like it should be in a doctor’s office! Anyway, you can monitor the temperature of meats inside your Green Egg Grill without even having to open it. A cord extends out to a temperature reading on the internal meat condition. Yes, these folks have thought of everything. They are the masters.
