Will Primo ever make a larger grill?


Recommended Posts

Agreed. The Primo line has plenty of size options.  I have used my Oval JR as my daily driver for several years. Plenty of space. An Oval XL would be a monster and is equivalent if not larger than the Big Joe for usable space.

 

I know have 2 Primo's. A Oval JR and the Round (18").  Overall I am satisfied with the quality of Primo other than Firebox issues with my Junior which are not that big of deal and they have stood behind from a warranty standpoint.

 

Kamado Joe is probably the best bang for your buck but I agree I prefer Made in USA.  Just as devils advocate, I would recommend 2 smaller grills vs 1 Monster size grill. Either identical (2) 18" Rounds or (1) 18" Round and an Oval Junior or Oval Large. 

 

If you get the 18" round you have the benefit of all the accessories out there at that size, like Joetisserie, Kamado Joe divide and conquer etc.

I have an oval xl and a friend had the big joe. After seeing my xl and watching me cook on it he sold the joe and bought an xl.

 

If you do some non traditional cooks other than grilling/low-n-slow such as sheet pans, casserole dishes etc....  An Oval grill just works better. 

 

Even a big brisket would work better on a Oval compared to a round.

In this day and age 90% of goods are made or sourced from overseas and not everything that is made in China is crap. BBE is made is Mexico and no issues with selling kamados. Primo is awesome to make their stuff here but they have been sitting on their butts not making accessories for the oval i.e rotisserie. KJ has a good quality product that was made in china with good product control and have lived up to their warranty claims.

I agree with you to a point. Up until KJ sold out to the big company. Quality has stayed the same but it seems customer service went down the toilet. It looks like that is covid related but the down hill slide started before covid and covid didn't help the slide.

My comments on preferring made in USA is not an indictment of the quality of the other Kamado brands at hand. It is more of a "buy local" / keep your money local where and whenever possible mentality. I honestly think dollar for dollar Kamado Joe is the best product out there. Thus I have bought an 18" round Primo and loaded it full of Kamado Joe accessories. Best of both worlds
