Fire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I love my Char-Broil Big Easy. It gets a workout on a regular basis. Usually, it’s loaded with poultry or on occasion, ribs. This time I set out to try something totally new: fire-roasted eggs. Why? Because I wanted to make a batch of egg salad, that’s why!

Fire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big EasyFire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big Easy turned out to be pretty time-sensitive. I needed just 8 eggs for my egg salad, but I put few extra into the basket to test as I went so I could get the timing down. It was a cloudy, breezy day, about 60 F out. Different weather conditions could cause your eggs to cook quicker… or slower.

After 12 minutes I had the perfect soft-cooked egg. A little runny yoke. Perfect for dipping bread into.

After 15 minutes the eggs were the equivalent of soft-boiled. Almost on the edge of hard-boiled. If I’d gone much longer I suspect they’d either be way overcooked or explode. That’d be a mess.

I let the eggs rest for 5 minutes then put them into cold water and shelled them. Minutes later I’m enjoying a nice egg salad sandwich.

Did you know you can make your entire breakfast on your Big Easy, not just roasted eggs? Make bacon, breakfast sausage, and breakfast cups!

  • Eggs


  • Fire up your Big Easy and let it get hot.
  • Place eggs in bottom of the Big Easy basket. Do not overcrowd. I do not recommend using the Big Easy Bunk Basket as the top of the cooker cooks at a different temperature than the bottom.
  • Insert basket into the Big Easy and cook eggs. You might want to test an egg after 12 minutes to get a feel for how long you'll need to cook them.
  • When done, remove eggs and let rest 5 minutes then transfer to cold water to cool. Remove shells and enjoy!
