The Big Green Egg makes the perfect holiday gift!

If you aren’t familiar with the cooking capabilites possible with a Big Green Egg then it is time to broaden your culinary horizons! Yes, it is true that The Big Green Egg is the original American-designed ceramic cooker derived from an ancient clay cooking device known as a “kamado”. Originally a clay vessel with a lid, today’s EGG® is a modern gourmet marvel known for producing amazing results for novice and experts alike for over thirty years.

When it comes to the types of dishes you can prepare on The Big Green Egg, the world is truly your oyster — no pun intended, but you can prepare oysters on an EGG® too!

With the holidays right around the corner, everyone’s mind is on what to prepare in honor of the BIG day and other holiday celebrations you have planned. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is your local Big Green Egg dealer with many size EGG’s in stock along with a wide variety of Eggcessories and accoutrements to make meal planning and enjoyment during the holidays a breeze! Here’s just a taste of the many delicious recipes possible:

Brined Turkey

  • What you will need for this traditional favorite is a Big Green Egg plate setter, hickory chips, V-rack, instant read thermometer and one nine by thirteen-inch drip pan lines with aluminum foil — and of course, an EGG and a turkey!


  • The only Eggcessory needed to prepare this decadent treat is a plate setter.

Festive Kabobs

  • Eggcessories needed for these festive kabobs include four Big Green Egg flexible skewers, or, wooden kabob skewers.


Archadeck of West Central & SW Ohio introduces MiniMax – All the things you love about the Big Green Egg, in miniature!

Big Green Egg Mini Max

And we shall call him…MiniMax!!!

When I hear the word mini, a ton of things come to mind; Austin Powers’ Mini Me, Mini Cooper, Mini Egg,  IPad mini, mini muffins, all of the unwrapped mini versions of Hershey candies (pure genius by the way), Minnie Pearl, and even Minnie Mouse! There are a few important aspects about things that are “mini”. These are typically developed because the larger version was so well-loved, but for individual reasons such as size or price, it didn’t “fit” and the smaller design is a happy compromise. Probably the most important attribute of miniature versions is the fact you gain all of the qualities and features you LOVE about the bigger one, but in a more compact and often more budget-friendly rendition just right for your needs. This is exactly how The Big Green Egg came about producing smaller versions of their amazingly versatile outdoor cookers, including their latest addition, the MiniMax!

You’re probably asking, didn’t you just mention the Mini Egg in your list of “mini” products that come to mind? Even though The Big Green Egg already had a micro form of their cooker, the new MiniMax is different from the Mini Egg. You still get all of the outstanding cooking capabilities for which the Big Green Egg is famous and the same external height and portability of the Mini Egg but with a larger cooking surface and overall volume! Keeping in line with the top-notch quality and feature packed products you’ve come to expect from The Big Green Egg product line, the MiniMax is compatible with a variety of EGGcessories plus, it even comes with its own durable, double handled carrier. They have really loaded up this one for maximum performance.

The Big Green Egg makes the perfect holiday gift,

Searching for the perfect gift for that special someone on your list just got a little easier this year. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio is your local Big Green Egg distributor and we are “egging” it up for the holidays!

The Big Green Egg is widely acclaimed as the original American-designed ceramic cooker and this modern culinary marvel stands alone as the most versatile barbecue and outdoor cooking products on the market today. Eggs offer more capabilities than all other conventional cookers combined. From the perfect steak, melt-in-your-mouth ribs to appetizers and desserts.

Now is the time to place your order in time to savor all the sumptuous holiday treats that you can prepare on your EGG, and they make the perfect gift with five sizes and a host of Eggcessories available to fit any budget or need!

Here’s just a “taste” of the cooking versatility of the Big Green Egg:

  • Big Green EggGrill  — Sear the perfect steaks, pork chops or burgers on the EGG. High temperature “steak house” grilling is quick and easy! Using the two dampers for accurate control, you can lower the heat to a more moderate temperature for other grilled foods. Fish and seafood turn out moist and tender with a flavor-packed crust unmatched by other grills.
  • Oven roasting & baking —  Using the indirect cooking method with a Plate Setter, the Big Green Egg bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, cobblers and pies better than your kitchen oven … you may never cook indoors again! The Big Green Egg retains heat and moisture so well that foods don’t dry out! Poultry, lamb, beef and vegetables are naturally tastier because the juices and flavors stay locked inside.
    • Big Green Egg Thanksgiving TurkeySmoker — The insulating ceramics of the Big Green Egg allow you to precisely control the temperature even at low heat. This control promises succulent results with turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs or any of your favorite cuts, infusing them with the aromatic wood smoke flavor. Want to slow cook at low heat for sixteen to eighteen hours … no problem!

 The Large EGG can cook:

One twenty pound turkey
Twelve burgers
Six chickens vertically
Eight steaks
Seven racks of ribs vertically
And so much more!

A Big Green Egg is a must have for tailgaters!

We have five sizes of eggs to choose from and tons of EGGcessories!
