We are happy to help you to assemble your Big Green Egg 2XL correctly and safely so that you will be able to enjoy it to the fullest. Our useful assembly video takes you through the assembly process step by step. Please be aware that certain parts of the 2XL are large and heavy. For this reason, be sure to have sufficient people around to help you put your Big Green Egg together. Don’t forget to read our important safety tips! Let’s get started!

Before you start: open the packaging and check whether it contains the manual and all the parts of the Big Green Egg 2XL.

Did you get an EGG Nest when you bought your 2XL? If so, first assemble the EGG Nest and place the ceramic base before continuing with the next steps. You will save yourself a great deal of effort by positioning the ceramic base of the 2XL in the EGG Nest before continuing with the rest of the assembly (instead of assembling it first and then positioning it correctly)!

Congratulations! Your 2XL is ready for use! Read more on the Using the EGG page.

Safety tips

A Big Green Egg is very safe to use, provided that the EGG is used for its intended purpose and that certain guidelines are followed. While assembling your EGG, take the following safety tips into account in order to enjoy the carefree use of the Big Green Egg and the mouth-watering flavours of all the wonderful dishes you can prepare on it!

  • Place and use the EGG in a spot that’s safe and where the ground is level.

    Ensure that the EGG is stable and never place it on an incline or uneven surface. Preferably place the EGG in an EGG Nest or EGG Carrier. If you have placed the EGG in/on a table with swivel casters, make sure to lock the swivel casters once the EGG is in its place to prevent it from moving about.

  • Do not place the EGG on a wooden or other combustible surface, or in the vicinity of combustible objects.

    When the Big Green Egg is in use, the bottom of the ceramic base radiates a great deal of heat. Avoid the risk of a fire and never use the EGG on or in the vicinity of wood or other combustible objects, or underneath low trees or low-hanging branches.

    The EGG is intended for use in a metal EGG Nest or special built-in table so that there is an empty space present beneath the EGG. Never position the EGG anywhere near a storage space that could possibly contain combustible substances.

  • Move the EGG by pulling it, not by pushing it.

    If you wish to move the EGG, we recommend that you place both hands on the EGG Nest/EGG Carrier or Nest Handler and pull the EGG along behind you. Do not push it ahead of you! The EGG Nest and Nest Handler are not intended to roll over any type of uneven ground, such as pebbles, soft soil or grass. Move the EGG across a stable surface and ask someone to help you, if necessary.

Big Green Egg has done everything possible to ensure the safety of the cooker when in use. However, the users themselves are responsible for their own safety and that of their environment. Users must always act prudently and handle the EGG and the accessories with caution.
