Way Back In History
Truly a phenomenon in the 21st century, the Big Green Egg comes from humble roots.
American soldiers returning home from Japan after WWII brought cargo planes full of items from the Eastern world. In the midst of that crowd was a unique rice steamer used in Japan for ceremonial purposes. The “mushikamado” had a simple clay pot design that included a removable lid, a damper at the top and a draft door on the bottom.
