40 Big Green Egg Outdoor Kitchen Ideas - Built-in and Island Designs

The best ideas for creating the perfect outdoor kitchen are those that help personalize it to suit your tastes and provide maximum utility. Perhaps the most significant decision when designing an outdoor space revolves around choosing the right grill and cooking range. However, with these 40 big green egg outdoor kitchen ideas, you no longer have to browse through extensive manuals trying to find the right cooking gear. This one egg has it all!

The beauty of the big green egg is that it is an all in one cooking range. It is a grill, oven, stove and smoker all at the same time. You can use it to sear steaks, bake, grill some burgers and even smoke some fish. It is the all-in-one piece of outdoor kitchen equipment, which combines ancient tradition and modern technology to bring the best of both worlds. The best part is, the egg is effortlessly incorporable into any kitchen plan.

Do you want a built-in green egg grill? You got it. Cut out a hole in your island counter as per the dimensions of the egg you order and fit it in. All you need to do is provide an additional opening in the counter near the base of the egg. Through that opening, you get access to ventilation and airflow control to manage the egg’s temperature.

Whether your kitchen is small or big, the big green egg can easily fit in any structure. You can even place it on stone boulders lining your flagstone patio and create a wooden platform around them. You can even cut out space in your counter and create a depressed platform for your egg. Or simply place it over the existing counter space.

With the egg, you don’t have to worry about an electrical connection, and you can even create a mobile kitchen island in your yard. Add some wheels to your wooden island and create an opening for a green egg grill that you can move at your convenience.

One of our favorite outdoor designs featuring the big green egg includes a light smoky gray kitchen with suspended counters and open shelving. Cut an opening and place your egg in the middle and store wood in the open shelves beneath the counter to add texture. The combination looks majestic and creates a modern design.

You can create a traditional outdoor kitchen with stone or brick walls and featuring granite counters. Install a built-in green egg in the island and add a wooden pergola for a majestic touch. Add some fairy lights to create the perfect finishing touch for a cozy kitchen.

The big green egg fits perfectly in any space, modern or traditional. The egg is available in a variety of colors and can serve as the much-needed pop of color in an otherwise plain design.  You can choose from green, black, or even red to re-create modern and unique ideas.
