The Big Green Egg is the sophisticated version of the earthen and slated ovens that were a part of almost every civilization in the world and that have been around for more than 3,000 years now. The Chinese Qin Dynasty is thought to have first invented the Big Green Egg in the form of dome-shaped clay cookers. However, the Big Green Egg was made popular by the Japanese who made a more sophisticated version of these Big Green Eggs and called them the Kamado which means stove, and they were dome-shaped as well and had a removable clay lid at the top. It was their exquisite cooking in those Kamados that enthralled the Americans during the Second World War. The Americans however favored it as a barbecue grill. They were so enamored by it that when it was time for them to return home, they brought along the Kamado with them. The problem that they however faced was the brittle nature of the clay cookers. During the later stages, after a lot of research, ceramic was used to construct them so as to make them efficiently heat resistant. Experiments have been made to alter the fuel as well. Efforts were made to fuel them with gas or electricity or even pellets but they have been seen to be interfering with the flavor. So finally, charcoal briquettes and lump wood charcoal have been given the verdict of efficient fuel for the Big Green Egg as they do not interfere with the flavor of the food and in fact may sometimes enhance it. The Big Green Egg can resist and hold high temperatures and can be a perfect grill and also function as a great smoker that works great under lower temperatures. Thus with great efforts, the taste of conventional cooking has been well preserved. Now one can even get additional Big Green Egg accessories and can make bread and pizza as well. This Big Green Egg cookbook is the result of a penchant for wholesome, nutritious meals that can be easily prepared at home using your Big Green Egg like a pro. The r

Authentic smoked flavor for those who don't prefer to spend hours monitoring their low-and-slow barbecue. With The Healthy Electric Smoker Cookbook, you can confidently smoke just about anything, offering many advantages over traditional smoking methods. - More convenient - Precise temperature control means you don't need to spend hours tweaking temperature, adding wood, and tending to the smoker. - Less cost - Conventional smokers require a significant amount of wood to produce consistent smoke and heat over long periods of time, but electric smokers use a very small amount of wood, which is used for flavoring and not as the energy source. - Smaller footprint - Electric smokers take up significantly less space and produce much less ash than traditional smokers. From happy hour, to entrée, to dessert, use any brand of electric smoker to wow your family and neighbors without building a smokehouse in your backyard. Plus, no unnecessary carbs and processed ingredients needed. Smoke your own skinny jalapeño margaritas, chipotle sriracha wings, cilantro lime beef satay, or dark chocolate brownies with bourbon whipped cream. Sure, you can loiter and watch your ribs slowly tenderize if you want, but you can also go do your yard work while your electric appliance turns out the most perfectly smoked and traditionally flavored barbecue you've ever created.
