Though barbecuing is not just a summer pastime, there's certainly something about those extra hours of sunshine that makes us want to get outside. If you're keen to up your al fresco cooking game but don't have the equipment, you need a Big Green Egg in your life (and backyard).  

The ceramic, double-walled cooker is a grill, a smoker and an oven all in one. You can sear steaks, hamburgers and seafood in the grill, cook turkey, ham or lamb in its precisely temperature-controlled smoker, and even use it as a brick oven to bake pizza and bread.

Big Green Egg's MiniMax is their most compact, portable and versatile piece of equipment. Measuring at 33 inches in diameter and 19.5 inches in height, the MiniMax was made for cooking and travelling wherever your grill inspiration takes you. Despite its diminutive size, the MiniMax still boasts a 133 square inch cooking area and is made from the same high-quality ceramics as its brethren.

The MiniMax can be positioned on a picnic table, by the side of the pool or in the grass – but to allow you to raise the portable Egg to a comfortable cooking height, we're throwing in a Portable Nest so you can grill while you stand. The Nest folds and packs flat, making it just as convenient and easy to transport to your event as your MiniMax. To celebrate this perfect summer accessroy, we've teamed up with Big Green Egg to give away a MiniMax to a lucky Foodism reader.
