The Primo Grill Offers A Kamado Style Cooking Option

Today’s kamado grills are an adaptation of the popular Japanese earthenware urn kamados that date back over 3,000 years. This cooker can be used as a smoker, oven or grill, made of ceramic and is fuelled by charcoal.

They are easy to start in any weather conditions and need very little fuel. This is due to the insulation offered by the design. Ceramics are well insulated and radiate heat at a constant even level.  This allows them to hold heat at a very high temperature. This translates to needing less charcoal and oxygen, therefore, minimising airflow out of the chimney. The meat that comes out of a kamado is like nothing you have ever tasted. The reason for this is when meat gradually heats up, the juices slowly begin to evaporate due to the airflow.  Because ceramic cookers have very low airflow the meat retains far more moisture.

What makes a Primo different?

The quality of materials sets Primo apart. They are made from the finest ceramic blend to promote premium heat and moisture retention. Ceramic is widely held as being more efficient than metal BBQs.  Ceramic BBQs draw less air to maintain the heat source.  Primo grills can maintain temperatures up to and beyond 400 degrees. This will enable you to reach the optimum heat need for outstanding steaks. The versatility with ceramic is such that it can also maintain a low slow heat at 93 degrees for more than 30 hours. Can you imagine how tender a piece of meat would taste cooked that slowly for that long?

Primo BBQs reach a cooking temperature in as little as 15 minutes.  All you need to do is light a primo fire lighter and add it to your natural lump charcoal. Lighter fluid is not required.  When is cooking is finished, simply shut the airflow off and the fire will suffocate itself. Your charcoal will be able to be used again for your next BBQ. Natural lump charcoal produces far less ash than briquettes resulting in less cleaning time. The heat of your Primo will burn any grease build up like that of a self-cleaning oven. The outside of the BBQ can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Thanks to superior design and quality materials, Primo grills are 60% more efficient than other competing grills on the market. They burn less fuel, reach required cooking temperatures faster and allow far less moisture to escape.  This results in quicker cooking times and juicier more delicious food.

How to Smoke on a Primo Grill

Place Primo charcoal lumps in a mound in the cooker. Light one Primo Quick light, place it near the draft door and light it. If you light the charcoal in many different areas, you won’t be able to maintain a very low heat. Then leave the draft door fully open for the next 5-7 minutes. If you are using flavoured wood chunks to infuse the meat, wrap them in foil (so they don’t catch and burn quickly) and place 2 or 3 on the top of the charcoal mound. At this point add the heat deflector plates. Add a drip tray on top. Place the grills plates on top of the drip tray. Now slide the door on the top vent of the unit open as well as the draft door located near the bottom of the unit. Within around 10 minutes the cooker should be at approximately 400 degrees. You need the initial heat of the vessel to be high so it heat washes the charcoal. At this point close the top vent. This vent also has a daisy wheel on it. Open that about one-third of the way. Then close the draft door. Not completely though.  Leave it open about a 1cm. After about 25 minutes this will have an even temperature of about 100 degrees. Perfect for smoking or slow cooking.
