The Nuts And Bolts About Primo Oval Grills
For those who might not be familiar with this grill and would like to have a little bit of information, let me start off by giving some background information about this type of grill. The Primo comes from a group of grills that is inspired by Japanese kamado grills. Easily, the most well known of the ceramic grills is the Big Green Egg, or BGE. The number of benefits provided by these grills are as follows: first, the ability to achieve a very wide range of temperatures, from 210 degrees to as high as 700 degrees; second, the extremely efficient use of both wood and charcoal, managing to use less fuel than one would expect to use with other traditional grills of the same size; fourth, the ability to keep moisture contained, thereby insuring that all of the meats that you cook are both tender and juicy. There are downsides to ceramic grills too and they are as follows: first, they are quite heavy, making them much to move; second, since they are ceramic, their fragility needs to be heavily emphasized. Finally, they are quite expensive in comparison to the traditional grills that one would purchase for a BBQ experience. When it comes to the reasons that set the Primo apart from the rest, there are three reasons that immediately come to mind. First, their oval shape makes cooking long things such as briskets, as well as simultaneously cooking two dishes of food on opposite sides of the grill very easy to accomplish. Second, the Primo has many more accessories when compared to those currently offered by other manufacturers; this includes additional racks, indirect heating 'plates', and other assorted items. Finally, Primo grills are all made in the USA, not only making it nice to support local manufacturers but also due to my skepticism about Chinese products these days. I will give this grill a five star rating. If you wish to be a serious cook, you need to have this grill and smoker in your possession! I spent a significant amount of time trying to decide between both the XL and JR Primo grills. When comparing the JR with the XL, the difference to be found in the cooking area is really quite significant. Having said that, it is still quite easy to cook two full-sized briskets simultaneously on my JR, giving you and everyone else a truly great meal. The food from this endeavor is sufficient to feed as many as six people. This is as an excellent tool that is well priced. If you have decided that you would like to cook food for a large chunk of people, then most likely you would want to look into purchasing and using on a regular basis the XL. Simply put, this grill is incredible and is definitely worth your time and money to invest in and use. It is very easy to set the temperature on the grill and then maintain it there. At the high temperatures you will be able to very easily both cook and sear a steak in a matter of minutes. Setting the temperature at a medium setting is perfect for cooking either poultry or vegetables. At the low temperature you have at your disposal a smoker that can easily keep up their pace with the pros, making sure that the bbq will be able to meet all of your various needs. Regardless of how much money you have at your disposal, or whether or not you would like to have your meats and vegetables cooked a certain way, you will be able to accomplish all of these things and more with this line of grills. It really does not matter how much time you are cooking, grilling, or smoking, what style of food you are attempting to prepare, as well as how many people you are finding yourself in need of cooking for: you will be able to very easily accomplish all of these goals and more with the use of this very handy grill. It is the oval shape that this grill possesses that really makes it unique, giving it some very clear advantages when compared to other grills. The lone downside about this grill is the cost, but I will say that in the long run, the Primo is definitely worth it.
