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 Oval Junior measures 24 by 22 by 16 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.

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 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.

The Primo Oval JR falls in the category of ceramic grill/smoker. This group is inspired by the Japanese kamado grills. The most famous of these is probably the Big Green Egg. They provide a number of benefits:

1. Ability to maintain a wide range of temperatures, allowing low/slow smoking at 210 degrees to high temperature searing at 700+ degrees.
2. Efficient use of charcoal and wood, using less fuel than similarly sized traditional grills also allowing for longer cooks without having to add additional coals.
3. Heavy sides insulate and capture heat, allowing for stable temperatures and protecting from exterior winds and cold to keep consistent heat.
4. Contain moisture, which is great for keeping your meats tender and juicy.

There are downsides to ceramic grills too:

1. They are heavy and thus harder to move around
2. Being ceramic, they are fragile. From the forums, a large % break in shipping so its good to get one that is backed by a good manufacturer. The top ones, including Primo are known to stick behind their products.
3. They are expensive compared to traditional grills for the same cook area.

There are three things that differentiate the Primo in my mind (getting tired of lists yet? :) )

1. They are oval, which is very handy for cooking long things like a brisket, as well as cooking two different types of food on each side of the grill, including doing indirect cooking on one side and direct on the other.)
2. They have more accessories than many of the other manufacturers, including additional levels of racks, the indirect heating 'plates', etc. Just more ways to get better utility out of your grill.

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 ago, and I have yet to get anything.

However, the Primo is set next to a wall (or I should say 10" from a wall, which is the minimum clearance), and I was able to use some 2 x 4s to build a simple wedge structure that supports the Primo just under the lip on either side of the hinge. This solved the tipping problem. Nevertheless, this is a seriouds issue. I imagine the tipping is avoided if the optional stand or table is purchased, but the manufacturer needs to alert purchasers to this potential problem.

That being said, let me say that all the good things people say about the Primo, and kamados in general, are absolutely true. I've done over a dozen cooks, and the result in each case was great.

Unless you are a very experienced cook I would strongly recommend that you purchase a digital food thermometer such as the Maverick ET732. Mine works great, and in my opinion it's essential to getting quality results.

I love this grill. Most of my cooking is smoking and this thing does a wonderful job. I cooked a 12 lb. boston butt this weekend for 16 hrs. at 225 degrees and still had 1/3 of the lump charcoal left in the firebox. Super flavor and juicy. Best pulled pork I've ever had. Unit is pricey but no more than good gas grills "Weber". And like I say "Very Efficient". I Normally save the left over charcoal for use my chimney starter for the next cook then clean the ash out of the firebox with my wet/dry vac. You can cook plenty of food for 3-4 people with this grill and have left overs.If I cook a whole brisket or butt for my son and myself I have enough food to eat all week and still give some to friends or put in the freezer. I have 2 other smokers, electric Masterbilt and a Smoky Mtn. propane but this one is by far the best for smoking meat. With all the accessories, "reflector plates, extended cooking racks, and drip pan racks". This grill is a superior design. The temp guage is decent but for serious smoking use a digital thermometer that monitors the cavity and meat temps together such as the Maverick. Get one..you won't be sorry.

I received the grill in a very basic single ply cardboard box sitting on a piece of foam and a cardboard collar over the top of the grill stack. I was amazed that the grill was not broken, beyond that there were several issues with the packing material as screws were scattered around the box, screws were missing altogether the lid was not attached and the main issue was that the site indicated that the grill ships with 4 ceramic feet but I was told by Primo that they no longer include the ceramic feet (what would you expect for $800?) and were sold separately.

Additionally the instructions are crap indicating wrong wrench sizes for assembly, not addressing installation of several components of the grill. I contacted customer service by email twice (no response) and by phone at Primo and was basically told too bad we don't include the feet and we are not to concerned with your other issues.
