I just bought one of these few days ago after shopping around for a kamado a long time. Reason why i bought it was my old weber needed replacement and my neighbor recommended me a kamado type grill.They have the advanage to keep the temperature better than gas and weber grills. This one was far cheaper than the famous bands therefore I decided to give it a try, paid 299 USD.Assembly was pretty easy, it took approx one hour plus one hour 'burn in time'. I made sure to tighten all the screws well, construction actually seems pretty sturdy . So far I cooked with it two times , here is my comments:
Pros: Price is very competitive, 299 USD vs 800+ USD for a 'famous brand' kamado .
Size, it is actually bigger than the competing "L size" kamados. Its 19 inch grid ... full review
Let me get the bad stuff out of the way first, since overall I love my Primo Junior.
When I first got the Primo I set it up on a stand in the place it will go once I complete the outdoor cooking station I'm building. I was quite surprised to find that with the lid open a slight push on the lid would cause the Primo to start tipping over backward. I thought perhaps the hinge mechanism required some adjustment to prevent the lid from going going back too far, and promptly called the manufacturer. The woman I spoke to didn't seem too anxious to help, but suggested I take a picture of the Primo and e-mail it to their warranty department. I did so, and received a form response saying I would hear from them shortly. That was more than a month ... full review
"I like it alot, but beware" - By bwthomas77 (Guam, USA)
This product is well built with heavy duty bars. I have had it for 2 months now and I suspect it will outlast the original fire plate it replaced. Now the good and the bad: Pro: 1. Lighting the grill is extremely easy now. I use a parafin lighter block, drop it below the fire grate and I am up to cooking temps in 15 mins. 2. Clogging of airflow is now a non issue. 3. Much easier to get up to high heat for searing steak, pizza. Easily reach 700 in 20-25 mins. 4. I use a bbq guru (PID device) for my low and slow cooks and with this fire grate there are zero air flow problems and temperature is spot on.
Cons: 1. The fire will quickly stoke up with lid open and can run away from you if not paying attention 2. Increased fuel use. ... full review
Worked perfect on my Big Green Egg. Haven't put any heat to it yet but I suspect there will be no issues. Took a long time to receive the product though. I had forgotten all about it. Glad I didn't buy another one.
Great quality and material. Much better then original clay insert I needed to change nearly every year. Very adequate packaging and shipping time. Very satisfied with this product - highly recommended.
