Primo's unique design allows for greater flexibility and versatility (view larger).

 

primo trio of grills
The Primo grill lineup: Oval Junior, Oval XL, and Oval Kamado (from left to right; stands not included).

With a Primo grill, you'll be able to:

  • Cook a wide variety of foods, including steaks, chicken, pork, turkey, fish, pizzas, vegetables... you name it!
  • Grill and/or smoke while maintaining a consistent low temperature or high temperature
  • Evenly heat across the entire surface of the grill

The Primo Kamado measures 30 by 21-1/2 by 21-1/2 inches (HxWxD). The only ceramic grill manufactured in the USA and constructed to the highest specifications, Primo grills are backed with a 20-year warranty on the ceramic portion and 5 years for its metal parts.

Durable Handcrafted Ceramics

Primo's handcrafted ceramics are designed to provide the upmost strength while providing superior temperature control and maximum moisture retention. By curing the finish at temperatures exceeding 2400-degree F, the glaze is permanently bonded to the ceramic body for long lasting durability.

The exclusive ceramic formula delivers consistent temperature control. From its smallest to its biggest grills, Primo can provide smoke temperatures as low as 95 degrees F or exceed searing temperatures of 750 degrees F.

Primo's bands and stands feature a baked-on, powder-coated, high-gloss finish for durability and easy maintenance. The commercial grade porcelain is applied to the grilling racks here in the USA and are crafted for a lifetime of use.

Perfect 7mm grill spacing so food stays on the grill, not in the fire, while maximizing searing efficiency.

Maximum Cooking Versatility for the Outdoor Chef

Many restaurants use the intensity of direct grilling to seal in the juices to foods, then finish the cooking process over soft true indirect or convection grilling style.

Similarly, with Primo's two-zone design, you're not limited to just one cooking style. Using the divider plate, you can cook a steak with direct heat on one side and chicken with indirect heat on the other side. You'll be able prepare the perfect meal, whether via direct cooking, true indirect, convection, baking, direct and true indirect, convection and true indirect, baking and direct, backing and convection, and so on.

Primo's two-zone design provides maximum cooking versatility to get the same big-name restaurant result at home, and at a fraction of the cost.

Optimized Grilling Surface

With Primo's exclusive flush rack design, a backyard chef is able to maximize the use of the grilling surface. Reversible grilling racks allows for food to be grilled a different intensities.

Natural Lump Charcoal

Primo recommends using its Primo brand Natural Lump Charcoal for best results. Burning cleaner, hotter, and longer, natural lump charcoal produces less ash than briquette style charcoal. It's also quick and easy to light--unlike charcoal briquettes that require patience--and is a renewable fuel source. Other natural lump charcoals are also fine to use in your Primo.

I researched the Kamado grills extensively before purchasing the large Primo model. Although this grill cooks pretty well, it's the small details that make it frustrating to use.
- the hinge is cheap so lifting the heavy top while holding a plate of meat in one hand is quite difficult. At this price point, I would have expected a good-quality hinge designed to ease lifting and support the lid.
- when you open and close the lid, the vent on top moves so you need to remember to fix it each time - otherwise you may come back to discover the temperature has dropped dramatically.
- the vent at the base is a very thin, cheap piece of metal that does not slide easily. It takes two hands to push it open and close.
- both the grill and the lid are lined around the edge with a fabric material. The first time I used the grill, this trim began to peel. Now I have to source out a new material and have it replaced. Again, at this price point, I would not expect this.
- cleaning is difficult!! It is a total mess to clean out the coals... Even a cheap Weber has this figured out.
- Lighting the coals and creating an even cooking surface takes practice but can be achieved. However, there is no way to create warmer and cooler sections so I have to fabricate a metal divider for the coals. Shouldn't this be included like it is for the XL Primo?
-the stand is so cheap and completely detracts from the design of the grill. There are much better options available for the XL.

This is a great pit/smoker. Don't fall victim of the big green egg movement because of marketing this unit is well built and performs great. Had a small defect on my ash plate....vendor honored warranty without question. Made in America

I originally wrote this as a comment to an existing review. I thought I'd give it it's own review and let more people see it.

I've had a large round Primo Kamado since 2004, and its the best grill/smoker I could ever hope to have. It's combination of versatility, efficiency, and durability is unmatched by any non-ceramic cooker available. I'm very satisfied and happy with it after 8 years of use.

Some observations:

A Kamado cooker is an INVESTMENT, not a consumer-grade grill. It costs 4-6 times more than a Weber kettle grill, (and produces superior results accordingly.) You need to accept it and its particulars if you are going to enjoy using this long-term. To that end, expecting consumer-grade operation is not going to work with one of these units. You MUST accept these massive ceramic cookers on their own terms; then they will reward you with grilled or smoked food that is on par with the best commercially prepared meals anywhere.

1. The hinge design is very effective for this unit. The top is HEAVY ceramic, and depending on your strength, could require two hands to lift. I'm a large-size man, and have never had an issue raising the lid. It CAN get sticky or stiff if it hasn't been used in a while, but a little spray lubricant on the hinges and spring plate takes care of that right quick.

2. The top vent cover is cast iron, and uses a hinged disk to regulate the opening size. It is completely removable and adjustable. The trick to keep from having to adjust it every time you open the lid is to make sure the disk hinge is pointed directly at you, (6 o'clock position,) no matter its open position. This will keep the disk from moving when the lid is opened.

I will never use my stove again :) This is a great product and easy to use. I am impressed with the quality of the parts. The hinge for the lid is amazing allowing easy opening and closing of the grill. I ordered this product and had it shipped to Canada. Very fast shipping and the seller was professional and all emails/corespondence were answered quickly. Would recommend product and seller to friends and family. A+++++++++
