In a very strange turn of events, Big Green Egg, one of the biggest names in the grilling world, wasn’t available for purchase online until as recently as a couple of weeks ago.
The American kamado-style grill makers with a cult-like following are the last major grill manufacturer to establish a real e-commerce presence. Previously, Big Green Eggs were only available to purchase on-site through the company’s authorized dealer network, which includes local operations and national outlets like Ace Hardware.
From the littlest of the Big Green Eggs to the largest, the company’s full suite of grills is now available for purchase on its new website. Orders are made on the site and filled by your local BGE dealer, which a company spokesperson says was done not to undercut the network of authorized dealers its established over time. The local dealer that fills the order can also provide BGE 101s and help with setup.
