The 7 best Big Green Egg accessories in 2024

As far as grills go, the Big Green Egg is incredible. You can use it to cook virtually anything. It’s the American version of a Mushikamado, a versatile, southern Japanese, wood- or charcoal-fueled stove. Because of materials, and its design, it can reach temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s impressive. But as impressive as it is, any professional or skilled griller knows it’s the accessories that you use with your grill that make the task worthwhile. From spatulas to meat thermometers, there are a host of options out there, and they all have something to offer you. No serious barbecue chef should be without a good set of tools — Big Green Egg accessories included — and here’s how you can save big while beefing up your arsenal:

EGGmit BBQ Glove

The Big Green Egg operates at extreme temperatures, so you don’t want to be touching it, or the grill surface, with your bare hands. The solution is to wear some EGGmit barbecue gloves designed to protect your hands, wrists, and lower arms. They can withstand temperatures of up to 475 degrees Fahrenheit (246 degrees Celsius). While that’s not the maximum temp that the Big Green Egg supports, those resistances are high enough to keep you protected while grilling on your beloved cooker.

2. Egg Covers

Your Big Green Egg will be exposed to the elements outside, even if it’s under a patio roof or cover. To protect it, you’ll want a water-resistant and form-fitting cover. The cover you need depends on the Green Egg model you own, of course, but there are a ton of options.

ConvEGGtor Plate

Big Green Egg convEGGtor plate for convection grill cooking your food.
Big Green Egg

The official convEGGtor plate turns your Big Green Egg into a convection cooker. The system basically circulates hot air, similar to an air fryer, to cook meals faster and more evenly. The official convEGGtor plate sits atop your grill grate and acts as a barrier between the food and the fire, which is better for low, slow cooks. It’s a must-have accessory if you want to roast, smoke, or bake on your grill. There are plates available for any size Egg, from mini up to large.

Out-of-the-box Big Green Egg grills are not smart-enabled. But with the EGG Genius, all of that changes. Once connected, it allows you to remotely manage and monitor your cooks, whether checking temperatures, seeing if you need to adjust the heat, or reviewing graphs and analytics of your best and past cooks. You’ll even get alerts on your phone when your meal is done cooking or if the temperature drops too low.

The ceramics pull moisture from the outer surface of the dough, which makes it crispy and delicious. You can order Big Green Egg pizza stones in 12, 14, and 21-inch sizes.

Our 6 favorite rum brands and bottles in 2024

Rum drink

When it comes to spirits perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a cocktail, many drinkers tend to look at whiskey immediately. But if your second choice isn’t rum, you’re missing out. White rum is a fantastic base for daiquiris, mojitos, and other drinks; spiced rum is excellent for tropical-centric Tiki-style drinks and for giving your drink a little extra spice, and dark, aged rum is perfect for slow sipping neat or on the rocks.

For the uninitiated, rum is a spirit made by fermenting and distilling sugarcane juice or molasses. It’s then either bottled immediately (or lightly aged) and sold as white rum, has spices added to create spiced rum or is aged in charred oak barrels like your favorite single malt scotch whisky, bourbon, or rye whiskey. We sipped on and mixed with a lot of rum in 2023, and we’ll do the same this year.

Our 4 favorite mezcals for sipping
Four great sipping mezcals
Mezcal

If you’re even the most basic drinker, you probably know a little bit about tequila. This agave-based spirit is popular for sipping neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a variety of cocktails, including the classic Margarita, Paloma, and Ranch Water. But mezcal, on the other hand, might be a bit of a mystery.

When thinking about mezcal, a good idea is to think of it like this: all tequila is mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila. That is to say that mezcal is the umbrella term used for all agave-based Mexican spirits. Tequila is simply a type of mezcal. It’s made with a specific set of rules. It must be made only with Blue Weber agave in Jalisco (where the town of Tequila is located) and a handful of other states.

It’s official: Gen Z is not a fan of wine (and what that means for everyone else)
Gen Z doesn't need wine to be high on life. What's that like?
Friends toasting with beer

For those of us wine-worshipping Millennials, the thought of the younger generation not inheriting this shared fervor for all things viticultural is outright ludicrous. But according to a new report from Silicon Valley Bank’s 2024 State of the US Wine Industry, that appears to be exactly what's happening. Perhaps it was our overenthusiasm that spooked the members of Gen Z; perhaps they found our DIY cork art and tacky TJ Maxx wine-pun napkins too "cheugy," and we've frightened them off of the incredible nectar forever. Perhaps we Millennials were just too outspoken in our passion, and wine is now somehow being reduced and widdled down to nothing but a once-trendy item that will age out of style with those of us who can still rap every word of the Fresh Prince intro. It's enough to make one shed tears into their oversized wine glass. How can this be?

The study
Widely viewed as one of the most comprehensive analyses of the wine industry, Silicon Valley Bank's report is bleak but with a few hints at a silver lining for those of us who are hoping to see the wine industry keep its head above water.
