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 Extra-Large Oval measures 28 x 21 x 30 inches (HxWxD) and has a cooking surface that measures 18-3/4 by 25 inches. 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 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.

Verified Purchase
after living overseas for many years, I just returned stateside and my first purchase was the Primo which I had wanted for years. I also bought every possible attachment they have and built a large cedar and granite table. All in all, I have almost 4000.00 invested. I have waited 6 months to post my review as I wanted to give Primo every possible chance to satisfy my complaints, but they have failed at every turn and do not return emails or any inquiries despite how tactful I have been. I have a few complaints with the product I got. The biggest being is that I have areas in my grill with divots where it is bare ceramic which has never been coated. (none of my Big Green Egg (BGE) friends have this). Primo asked for pictures which I sent but will not respond to multiple emails regarding these pictures. Though I really thought that I wanted a Primo over the BGE, I cannot recommend to my fellow grillers/smokers. Shortly after using my grill, I noticed that the smoke did not vent through the cap, but rather under it. Still can't figure out why, but it really looks weird and discolors the lid. Primo asked me to remove the cap and see if there was heat resistant tape under it. There was not. They seemed to imply later that it was not needed anyway???? Within weeks of purchase, the stainless nuts on the handle started rusting. ( Has not got much worse over the months I have had it. Another item that has failed within a week is the thermometer clip which holds it in place. No idea how to fix this as Primo does not answer inquiries. I have NO idea how they manage to stay in business with this type of service. This summer I let them know that I was holding back on my review to give them the opportunity to make me pleased with my purchase.Read more ›

This is an awesome grill, smoker, and oven all in one. After spending weeks of research on ceramic grills, I came to the conclusion that Primo Grills, which are made in the USA, are the most versatile and largest of all ceramic grills on the market. There are many options/add-ons for this grill that really make it stand out too. Be sure to pick up the extension racks as they are great for added food. I mostly use my extension racks for smoking meats and the results are incredible. If you need an oven, purchase the Deflector Plates and drip pan racks. The Drip Pan racks hold the Deflector Plates, but also serve to hold your drip pans when smoking fatty foods. If you want to cook a pizza, purchase the Primo Pizza stone as well. You will definitely need the Ash Tool and Grid Lifter for everyday use. Spend a few hours learning how to use this grill and you'll reap the rewards. I've provided a few tips that will save you a lot of research time and they are listed below to get you started.

Best LUMP Charcoal - I found Royal Oak to be superb and it is available at Walmart in a Redish/Orange bag for $6.43 per 10LB bag. It is very highly rated on the NakedWhiz lump charcoal review website.

LIGHTING THE GRILL: Propane torch with 3ft extension handle.

SMOKE WOODS: Use chunks for longer smokes and chips for quick smoking. Just toss them into the coals.
Pork Ribs - Baby Back or St. Louis style (Apple Wood and Hickory work great together)
Chicken - (Hickory, Apple, Olive) (more to be added)
Seafood - (Alder)
Beef - Short Ribs(Hickory and Red Oak)
Beef - Porterhouse Steak (Mesquite - chips) This combo makes an amazing feast. Add Salt,Pepper,& Garlic & 1 nice handful of mesquite chips - smoke for 5-10 minutes at high temp on bottom racks.

My Oval XL's interior ceramic bowl cracked after the first use at nominal temperatures. Customer service has completely ignored my attempts at contacting them. So yeah, if it doesn't break on you, it's nice grill. But if it does, you are absolutely screwed. It's too bad that the only American manufacturer of ceramic grills has to be the one that ignores their customers once they've made the sale. Once it broke, I went to other websites and saw similar complaints from other Primo owners.

This was an awesome grill. Best fajitas I ever ate and amazing steaks. But week 2 the top shattered.
This was mid-late June. Manufacturer said it would take 3 weeks to replace. Now they are saying mid September
"due to the number of orders as well as our already full production schedule."
If is does show up by Sept 15 it will have been nearly 90 days. So, we missed the use of this grill 4th of July,
and now we'll miss labor day weekend too. I wouldn't buy another one or recommend it. One
of the selling points made by the dealer was that Primo is a USA based company with USA quality unlike the
smaller green egg that is made in Mexico. Hmm.

Temperature control is easy and exact. One bag of charcoal did a chicken one night, 11 hours of pork butt smoking the next week, and ran then ran the unit as a 200 degree warmer for 6 hours. Far better fuel use than my father's WSM. It is super heavy, plan on at least two strong backs to move and assemble. Lid is very heavy even with spring assist. Make sure to order the extra racks and buy a large pizza stone. I like the fact that it is made in the U.S.A as well.
