Primo Ceramic Charcoal Smoker Grill - Oval XL:
Choose Primo and experience the best in kamado style charcoal cooking. The Primo Oval XL Charcoal Smoker Grill is an extra large sized grill and one of the biggest ceramic cookers on the market. The distinct shape of the Oval XL allows you to cook using direct or indirect heat, expanding your grilling options unlike any other kamado-style grill. This grill features easy to clean and reversible porcelain-coated cooking grates, as well as one of the highest sitting lids which is great for cooking whole chickens or turkeys. This kamado style grill is made in the USA, unlike its competition, and constructed with premium grade Primo SuperCeramics and coated with a protective, lead-free, and scratch-resistant porcelain glaze. The patented Primo Oval XL efficiently retains and evenly distributes heat across the 400 square inches of cooking surface, perfect for maintaining a consistent temperature. Smoke meat at temperatures as low as 180 degrees Fahrenheit, or turn up the heat to more than 500 degrees Fahrenheit for searing and grilling. Use the cast iron chimney cap, stainless steel lower vent door, and easy to read thermometer for monitoring and keeping a precise temperature. The easy lift-and-lock hinge system keeps the lid raised in place, and the soft-close felt gasket protects the ceramic while opening and closing the lid using the cool touch handle. Heat-safe ceramic feet are available to stabilize your Primo and are needed when the grill sits on a combustible surface (sold separately). The variety of accessories available, along with the unique oval shape, allows flexibility in cooking a never ending list of delicious meals. Choosing a Primo kamado style grill is a decision you will never regret.
Primo warrants all ceramic parts for twenty years, five years for all metal parts (excluding cast-iron parts), one year for all cast-iron parts, and 30 days on the thermometers and felt gaskets. The warranty is limited to the repair or replacement of any parts which, under normal use, Primo determines, after reasonable examination, to be defective.
About Primo Grills
Primo Grills are the only ceramic kamado-style grills manufactured in the USA. Primo uses high grade ceramics during construction
and every grill is carefully inspected for quality before it leaves the factory. Primo originally manufactured a round kamado, similar
to most other kamado brands. Then, Primo decided the kamado design could be improved and they built the Primo Oval. The patented oval shape
grill has many advantages and it features one of the largest cooking areas among kamado grills.
Primo Grills make it fun to cook. But more importantly, Primo gives your food the absolute best flavor. One you try Primo,
you will taste the difference.

I have grilled and smoked all my life. My Dad bought his first Weber in 1972. I love to smoke and have competed in many contests. I bought my Primo XL 6 years ago. It is the most efficient and Versitile unit available. Buy it! It does it all. I cook the entire meal on it without a sweat.

Best size and most versatile ceramic cooker, period!
I definitely did my research ahead of time and this is the cooker I choose. My only complaint is I wish I would have purchased it sooner. If you love to BBQ and grill this is a must.
First you need to be sold on a Komodo type cooker i.e., ceramic. From there, you have the choice of about five brands.
Ceramic in general:
- Well insulated so food does not dry out
- Keeps flavor in and you can taste a difference
- Extremely efficient with charcoal
- Can grill at a seating 700 degree or smoke at 150 degrees and everything in-between
- Keeps temperature even an consistent
- Due to large ash space and fuel conserving efficiency, you can reuse old coal for next cook. Just light it and let it warm up while you prepare your food; almost as simple as gas.
- You will become addicted to outdoor cooking!
Unique differences offered by the Promo Oval.
1. Much larger cooking area, the Green Egg, as well as other traditional shapes which are only 18” and are very limited. “Have you ever cooked on an 18” Weber Kettle it’s just inconveniently too small”.
2. Extra extended cooking racks for even more space are available.
3. Iron divider that fits in the fire box for true indirect cooking; great for steaks or anything in that matter where, you want indirect and direct cooking at the same time
4. A great user Forum site full of supporting users, as well the people at Primo are super helpful and knowledgeable.
Lastly, the great thing about this cooker is the ease of use; I’ve cooked a brisket for 18 hours and never needed to add charcoal or even lift the lid during the entire cook! I truly believe Primo is the Cadillac of the “ceramic cookers”. Another nice feature is if you add lots of coal at first, due to its efficiency you can just re-light what’s left over from the last cook and a few more times depending on what your cooking; it’s nice to just to go out and light it without cleaning ashes an pulling out the bag each time! I have had mine for close to five years now and still love it I now cook outdoors 3 to 4 days a week now:)
Pros:Cooks efficiently, Adds flavor to meal, Large grilling surface, Great for two people
