Primo Grills Kamado / Round Grill
Better off with BGE or Kamado Joe
Chris from Greenville, SC– Verified Buyer
I purchased this grill only because Big Green Egg and Kamado Joe are not available online. First of all, the traditional kamado style is not Primo's forte. If you're looking for an oval grill, Primo is the way to go, but their traditionally shaped model is lacking is several areas. First off, they don't make a heat deflector for this model. You can use the BGE or Kamado Joe deflector but the height of the device doesn't line up with lip of the grill and ends up reducing your useable vertical space. The charcoal grill grate is ceramic, not cast iron and I've already had to replace mine as it cracked when i dumped the lump charcoal in. The firebox is one piece instead of 2 which reduces the flexibility in terms of BBQ set up options. Still, if you have a 20% coupon this grill is not a bad option and will cook a brisket just as well as the BGE or KJ. Would have given it 3 stars for average except for the fact that Primo doesn't make a deflector specifally for this unit.
