Good Grill That Poses Minor Challenges
March 20, 2014
This grill is very easy to load, but unfortunately, it is not very easy to control the temperature. Thankfully after a good bit of practice, I am finding myself getting better at it. One of the best features that this grill offers is its indirect heat mode. This process places the coals on the left, a drip pan with the items to be cooked on the right, while the direct cook feature is found on the left toward the conclusion of the slow cook process. Overall it takes a lot of finesse to control the temperature, but it is very easy to get it up to 700 degrees. This grill is very easy to turn off: all that you need to do is close both the bottom and top air regulators and you are good to go. It is really quite easy to clean out all of the ashes. It is important that you trust your thermometer, because when it is saying that it is done, it really is done! This does not use a lot of coal while burning and it also does not require starter fluid, a double bonus! Even though there are a bunch of accessories that do tend to ramp up the price a little bit, it is definitely worth the investment in the long run, so do not hesitate to buy one!

A Grill for Novice Cooks
October 30, 2013
For a great charcoal grill you can’t go wrong with the Primo. It gets regular weekly use and is superior to other grills I’ve had as it cooks very efficiently, even for novice cooks. Cooking several types of meat and grilling slow for several hours requires a minimum of effort for gaining great results. Because it’s crafted of ceramic and not metal, it’s capable of holding heat for a very long time. Plus there are many accessories available to roast, smoke and cook many kinds of meats and vegetables. I highly recommend it.

Takes the Heat
August 13, 2013
For 10 years now, I’ve been using a Primo Grill to cook and roast a multitude of meats and vegetables and have never seen a better grill than this one. It will not rust out like other metal grills and it can take the heat because of the insulated ceramic walls. Even roasting in the dead of winter, the heat stays even and precise. Regulating the temperature with the top and bottom dampers is as accurate as your kitchen oven. Though it’s a bit expensive, you will never want for a better outdoor cooking appliance as it will last well beyond other grills.

Simply Amazing Grill
November 10, 2012
When it comes to getting some incredible results on a variety of food types, the Primo XL is the best product to purchase. After doing a good bit of research, I understand that currently there is no other ceramic grill available on the market that is capable of achieving the same results that it is able to accomplish. From flexibility to coming space, the XL is simply amazing in what you can use it to accomplish in outdoor cooking.

Best All Around Grill
September 6, 2012
After doing extensive research on ceramic charcoal grills, I have come to the conclusion that the Primo Grill (made in the U.S.A) is the best all around for grilling, smoking, and roasting/baking. All the different add-ons and accessories for everyday grilling or for smoking meats and baking pizza will give you tremendous results. Spending some time getting familiar with all the options and following my tips will most certainly be beneficial. I can’t say enough about this fantastic charcoal grill. Tips: A highly rated lump charcoal to use is Royal Oak. A propane torch with a 3-foot extension handle is best for lighting the grill. For seasoning pork or baby back ribs, try using apple wood and hickory wood chips. For chicken, I used hickory, apple and olive. For seafood – add alder wood chips. For different cuts of beef and for great flavor, experiment with hickory, red oak, and mesquite chips. Adding salt, pepper, garlic, and butter at the end enlivens your taste buds for a truly memorable feast.

This product is simply one of the best, and the service that it provides is unmatched. I decided to purchase the Primo because of how big it is and was quite satisfied with the results. Recently I had a forty pound brisket that began on Friday at 9pm and was done at 5:30pm on Saturday. It is a great buy.

Grill That Puts All Others to Shame
June 10, 2012
The major problem that I had this grill had nothing to do with its quality and everything to do with its packaging, which was lousy. The packaging in which the grill was sent was badly damaged, possibly due in part to a horrible design scheme. It was so bad that I contacted Amazon about my issues and they chose to send me another unit. The replacement came and the packaging was badly damaged, but this time, the grill was not damaged! Additional issues were that the delivery company was late both on the initial and second delivery attempts. Despite these problems, the shipper was very professional during this entire ordeal. Despite all of these problems, when I got the grill, I fell in love with it instantly! I recommend you to not waste your time on other inferior products! This grill is definitely worth it, and whether it is brisket of a whole chicken, the results are always amazing!

Positive Attributes
May 2, 2012
There are so many positive attributes to the charcoal grill that I could go on and on about it. It has a large capacity and the oval shape is a great plus for handling more food. Having the grates closer together practically eliminates food dropping onto the charcoal. For preparing small amounts of food and using less charcoal, you can easily cook on one side of the grill while keeping food warm on the other side. For smoking food, a little charcoal goes a long way by keeping the heat at 225 degrees for hours. Using Royal Oak charcoal is very cost effective also and enlivens your food with a hint of smoky flavor. The only downside to all the positives is the lack of an ash screen and the bottom vent lacks stability. But all in all, this grill is a great buy. You’ll be very happy with your purchase of this charcoal grill.

Great Appliance To Own And Use
January 8, 2012
Currently, I am 57 years of age and have owned and operated a ceramic smoker of some type for the last 41 years. I was initially introduced to the concept of the Kamado Pot smoker (the Japanese version) at the age of 16, and it left an impression. I started small, purchasing a smoker that could only cook a couple of burgers, steaks, or ribs at one time. For those not familiar with it, the Kamado pot is ceramic, and I absolutely love the taste that this pot is able to produce. As I grew older, I managed to buy a larger kamado pot and give my initial one as a gift to my cousins. When my dad hit retirement, he decided to go all out and buy the big green egg, known as the best grill on the market. Recently, I managed to buy a larger pot and was able to smoke a 22 pound turkey. Let me say that the ceramic smoker is an incredible device, upon which you can smoke just about anything.

Grill That Is Well Worth the Price
May 7, 2011
Overall, I am a very satisfied customer with regards to the Primo grill and would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. My decision to purchase this grill came after I had done a good deal of research, all of which pointed to the Primo Grill as being the best choice available on the market. What I really liked about the Primo is that it is a charcoal grill that is more than capable of giving people the tastiest food available. It, admittedly, was one of the more pricey options out there, but in the end, I think it is safe to say that the costs have all been sufficiently justified. Additionally, if you want to really make the most out of the appearance of your grill, I would recommend that you look into placing it on top of a teak table. Granted, it is a little bit on the pricey side, but it is definitely worth the additional investment. This grill has helped me to really impress all of my neighbors, and so far, it is safe to say that I have never been let down by it! Regardless of the type or style of the food, it almost always comes out perfectly, even better than it did the first time. I am highly satisfied with this grill and am quite glad that I made the decision to invest the additional money in the XL version of this grill to better help cook for the larger gatherings. The only problem that I have ever had with this grill pertains to the gasket. It melted right after I had finished an overnight cooking. Additionally, the interior ceramic bowl cracked, and while I am not sure if I accidentally did something in error, it does seem odd to crack after a handful of uses. Thankfully, it was covered under the warranty, and I have already submitted my claim to Primo. They have shipped my replacement, and I am waiting for its arrival.

Well Designed Grill That Gets Used a Lot
March 20, 2011
My previous grill was a Big Green Egg, but after having used my Primo Oval for a good bit now (currently I use it two to three times a week) I would recommend this product hands down as the way to go. So far, I have cooked pork butts for eight to nine hours (with only a few checks) and on each occasion they came out perfectly. This grill is perfect for the inexperienced griller, allowing you to sear steaks or cook thick pieces of meat while expending a minimal amount of effort.

Smart Investment
December 5, 2010
A precise and easy-to-use temperature control isn’t the only amazing feature of this grill. This American-made charcoal grill effectively utilized just one bag of charcoal to roast one chicken, smoked one pork butt for 11 hours and kept food warm for a total of six hours. Because it’s a super heavy ceramic charcoal grill, it required two strong and able-bodied persons to move and assemble it. Please note that the lid is very heavy also. Extra racks and a large pizza stone would be a smart investment also.

Long Lasting Grill That Is the Best Out There
November 15, 2009
If you take good care of this grill every time that you use it, then you will be able to use it many times in the future. I would also like to add that there is a little bit of a learning curve when it comes to figuring out how to properly set up the vents. I have found that it can hold a temperature between 160 to 180 degrees for up to eight hours, only using half of a box of coal. Initially, I found myself to be a charcoal fan and had not done much smoking before, but because of how good the Primo XL has been to me over the last six months, I can safely say that it is light years ahead of the Webbers with which I grew up. Before, I hadn't smoked much before, but now I find myself constantly smoking on the weekends. If you like to smoke or roast, then this grill is definitely the one that you need to purchase and begin using it! All you need to do is to soak some flavored woodchips, drop them into the grill, put your meat on and wait for it to cook to perfection. You won't need this grill for cooking hamburgers (a $40 Weber will do), and since I have not tried the baking component of this grill, I will not offer any recommendations about it. If you are new to smoking, then there are some books that I definitely would like to recommend to you for you to review. They are "Smoke and Spice" and "Backyard BBQ." Both books offer some handy tips as well as contain some great recipes. Personally, I believe there to be enough of a difference between the Cowboy, Oak, and Primo grills to justify the decision to purchase the grill. If you plan on closing the vents after every use, then you will be able to reuse the fuel on a fairly consistent basis.

Grill That Gives Cooking a New Lease On Life
July 15, 2009
Regardless of whether your best meal to cook is fish, steak, or burgers or you prefer to do high and fast or low and slow smoking, the Primo is for you, and you will very quickly find it to be amazing. It is very easy to see how this grill/smoker is more than capable of giving a new take on cooking in the great outdoors. The types of meat that I have cooked include the following: lion roast, butt, crown roast, chops, sausage, and tenderloin, all types of beef and poultry, and grilled vegetables. With the exception of one loin roast, everything turns out better all around. Recently, I cooked a pork crown roast. I brined it in onion, salt, garlic, sage parsley, and maple syrup for a total of 18 hours. Then, I wet rubbed it with Pepper, parsley, salt, sage garlic, and olive oil. Finally, I stuffed it with bread crumbs, ground pork, garlic, chopped apple, sage, and cranberries (for decoration).Was quite a treat for everyone in attendance!

Excellent Grill That Is Easy to Maintain
June 2, 2009
I absolutely love my Primo grill and I would buy it in a heartbeat if I had to do it again. I have found that it is very easy to both maintain and clean something I am very meticulous about. I also do my best to keep it completely covered during the times I am not using it. I currently have it on a teak table. Over the time that I have had this grill, I have been able to cook for numerous groups and frequently find myself being asked to host parties just because the results from this grill as so good. All of my neighbors keep commenting about the sumptuous smell put out by my smoker! I do a great deal of smoking and I purchased my Primo about 2 years ago. I sue it quite regular for dishes such as pork butts, chicken, briskets, baby-backs, seafood, and steaks. In addition, I have in my possession a Cook-Shack smoker that I absolutely love, even though it costs about twice as much as my Primo! If I had to pick between either of these, hands down I would choose the Primo. Even though it is quite heavy, the customer service and workmanship are unsurpassed; I have never had any problem whatsoever. During the time that I have had my nothing has ever broken, chipped, malfunctioned, or cracked. Because of the excellent craftsmanship, I fully expect my Primo will not only last but also give me high quality service for many more years to come. If you are in any way, shape, or form interested in smoking, then I would highly recommend that you give some consideration to purchasing the Primo. The one thing that I have noticed about a significant number of the smokers that are currently available is that you are not able to indirectly smoke with them. In the overwhelming majority of smoker designs, they place the flame right under the food, making it useless in the grand scheme of things. Currently, I am able to smoke up to four pork butts indirectly using my Primo (incidentally, a ton of meat) My Primo is also able to smoke briskets to perfection. Even though my family and friends consider me to be one of the greatest outdoor cooks; the real answer to my success lies in the equipment. A huge chunk of the work really is common sense combined with some assorted research. I do enjoy the ability to serve some fantastic meals as well as using some incredible condiments. Always use lump charcoal. Do not be afraid to indulge in some experimentation with different types of wood! Some of my personal favorites are cherry, citrus, pecan, apricot, and apple. One additional tip: be sure that you get the rack tool; this will help you easily pick up any hot rack or cast iron separator. Once I am able to get the temperature just where I want it, I am able to kick back for some relaxation! I will never cease to be amazed in how little work there is involved during the course of a long smoke. Even the temperature is very easy to maintain.

A Great Grill That Has a Few Challenges
March 13, 2009
I decided to wait until I had owned my grill for a while, and after having possessed is now for several months, I feel fully prepared to write an in-depth review. The first problem is that it is quite heavy, so do not expect to move it around. Be sure that you get a pot lifter as well. There is a little bit of a learning curve that is involved with the Primo grill. For us, we decided to register on the forum provided on the Primo site. There are videos provided there to help explain to the new user the ins and outs of using the Primo grill. After having done our homework, I am quite happy to say that we are able to get incredible results from our grill. We were quite surprised at how easy it was to control the temperature on this grill. In our case, we find it easier to use the low and slow method and it is extraordinarily easy to use. The heat deflectors make cooking a very easy process, and all of the accessories are made with very high quality materials. Additionally, our grill is very easy to clean and it carries a large payload. Because of how good our grill is, neighbors are always interested to check in with us and see what we are cooking. I would also like to add that prior to the decision to purchase the Primo, we did a good deal of research on all of the other grills that are currently on the market. I will say that if you decide to invest the amount of money that this smoker comes priced at, it is imperative that you make an educated decision so that you can feel certain that you are getting the most out of your money.

How much space do I need for the Primo XL? I am in the process of building an outdoor living area and want to incorporate this grill into my design.
By Dawn on May 22, 2014

Answer:
The Product Manual should provide you with all the information you need. Please note, however, that if you are wanting to incorporate it into a built in cabinet application, there will be no instructions as it is not designed for that use.
