The Big Green Egg

The Big Green Egg is the world's best Smoker Grill. Just ask anyone who owns one .

You may wonder why a drugstore sells Big Green Egg Grills. Our owners, George & Nancy Launius, fell in love with the grill, in the early 80's,  after attending a local dinner party where meat was cooked on a Big Green Egg.  After purchasing one of their own, they were convinced that there was a market for this amazing grill in their Morgan County community.  In the mid 80's, Thrifty Mac became GEORGIA'S very FIRST BIG GREEN EGG DEALER in Georgia and the 2nd dealer in the world!, selling the grill in their locally owned, small town pharmacy, one grill at a time.   Through the years, the Thrifty Mac Pharmacy BGE business has grown from buying and selling one grill at a time to having one of the largest selections of Big Green Egg Grills and accessories in the area.  You will find almost any accessory available in stock.  Come in and ask for George or Nancy, our owners, and BIG GREEN EGG experts.  The BIG GREEN EGG is a lifetime purchase.     Local DELIVERY AND SET UP  IS AVAILABLE.

The Heavy Duty Big Green Egg® is made of modern heat holding ceramics. The ceramic walls are heavy and thick. This insulating quality cooks foods with an amazingly small consumption of charcoal. A 20 LB bag of natural charcoal will usually provide four to six months use, even if you cook out several times per week. When you are through cooking, just close the lid and the top and bottom drafts to extinguish the fire. You can reuse about 80% of the charcoal. This feature alone will pay for your Big Green Egg® in a short time.


By adjusting the dampers, you can attain a temperature accuracy within two degrees.
 You have total control. You can do your grilling, barbecuing,and smoking,
exactly the temperatures you need. The optional heat gauge will give precise readings
 of temperature, from 50° to 750°. We have included a cookbook with recipes and easy
instructions. You'll get great results from the start.


Smoking is done at lower temperatures—usually between 150° and 250°. Add some
 moistened wood chips to the glowing charcoal for flavor. Your Egg® gives you control
 of the degree of smoked flavor. You can have just a hint of smoke, or have your meats
 smoked through to the bone. With the Big Green Egg® you can smoke foods exactly
the way you like them.


Lighting is quick without starter fluid regardless of wind conditions. All you need are a
 few sheets of newspaper. The air flow works like a fireplace. The Big Green Egg® will
 be at operating temperature and ready to use in less than ten minutes. You can use an
 electric lighter for even greater convenience.


The BGE® is a smoker, a grill, and an oven. You can do an entire meal at once
by including your veggies—corn, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, etc. are superb!
There are even deserts you can enjoy from the Egg®. The cookbook has many
more suggestions.


The Big Green Egg® ceramics hold heat and moisture extremely well. For this
reason, foods do not dry out, as in metal charcoal, gas, or electric grills. Natural
 juices and flavors enhance the taste. The BGE® operates without the need for
 water or endless hours of tending. Meats and other foods are juicier, with little
or no shrinkage.


The Big Green Egg® is safer to use because the ceramic surface stays cooler
than a metal cooker. This protection is most important around small children.


The ceramic Big Green Egg® gives a natural and wholesome flavor to all your
 foods—with no metallic taste. When baking, you'll get a "brick-oven" flavor and
crust. Bake a bread or a pizza in your Big Green Egg® and see for yourself.


You can use The Big Green Egg® in all climates. Rain and snow cannot harm it.
 It is suitable for all year use, even in freezing temperatures. The BGE® can be
 priceless in emergencies.


The exterior has a lifetime porcelain glaze bonded to the ceramic. This permanent
finish maintains its good looks and wipes clean easily. Inside, the heat will burn off
any grease and splatters much like a self-cleaning oven. The porcelain coated grill
is easy to clean. When your cookout is over you'll have less than a handful of ash
to remove.


Heavy Duty Big Green Egg® ceramics will not become brittle with use like the
 fire-clay kamados of old. These new space age ceramics will withstand 2000 ° of heat
 without damage. Sear your steaks and fish at 700° or more. Smoke your roast or ham
at 200° or less. Your Big Green Egg® will maintain the temperature you set,
 and perform superbly at high and low temperatures! (Code 1976)
