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.

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.

Optimized Grilling Surface
With Primo's exclusive flush rack design, a backyard chef is able to maximize the use of the Oval's 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.
