Turn on the HEAT!


Bring a touch of history with a Big Green Egg

If you’ve never seen or heard of a Big Green Egg, they are not hard to spot. They look like a big, green egg. Well, almost; the bottom is kind of flat, but you get the picture.

Don Tubbs, the owner of Tubbs Hardware & Cajun Gifts, said they’re older than they look. “The Big Green Egg has been around for thousands and thousands of years. What the Asians cooked with way before we ever started keeping up with history. They were using these type cookers, and they are tried and true. Nothing makes your food taste better than a Big Green Egg cooking with natural lump charcoal.”

And they’re practical, too, according to Tubbs. Other grills – and he sells all kinds at his stores – don’t measure up to the durability of, and results from, the Egg.

“All these pellet grills with moving parts they’re going to the curb in five to seven years. Replacement parts are hard to find. I sell pellet grills, but if people would just realize how easy it is to use a Big Green Egg, how wonderful the food tastes that comes off of it, and the fact that it will last you forever with very little maintenance.”
