Big Green Egg is the most popular kamado BBQ made of the best ceramics. They have been creating beautiful memories since 1974 and they will continue to do so. Big Green Egg is the original. The Evergreen.

There are plenty of similarities between Wessel Buddingh' from Big Green Egg Europe and Thomas Uljee from Tomasu. Such as a passion for beautiful, natural flavours. For sustainability. And for making beautiful memories with your loved ones.

So when Michèl Lambermon, head chef at Big Green Egg Europe, returned ecstatic after a visit to Tomasu's soy sauce microbrewery, things started to bubble. Something very beautiful could come out of this. What happens with the barrels of the Scottish whiskey breweries in which the soy sauce ferments for at least 24 months? Couldn't they make smoke chips for the EGG? That gives a great smoky taste.

In short, if you get like-minded specialists to think out-of-the-box, the possibilities are limitless.

If nature gives us such beautiful things, shouldn't we give something back?

We thought so too. And that's why a portion of the proceeds from the collaborations is donated back into the soil. For example, in 2020 we planted a flower border along the wheat and soybean fields in the Hoeksche Waard. That looks nice, of course, but it is especially good for the biodiversity around the fields. For example, it offers support to pollinating insects and natural enemies of pests.

And it contributes to a favorable living environment for farmland birds, for example. By doing this, we give back to nature and ensure that this piece of land can continue to provide us with tasty and healthy ingredients in the future.
