The Primo Patented Oval Design Outperforms Round Grills

The One. The Only. True Oval.

The Primo Oval offers true two-zone simultaneous direct and indirect cooking. That’s a fancy way of saying that you get two very distinct cooking zones; it’s just like using a grill and an oven at the same time.

Grill steaks on the direct side and roast seafood or vegetables on the indirect side. No round grill offers so much versatility.

The Reversible Cooking Grid, Heat Deflector Plates, Extension Racks, and other accessories allow you to create more than 69 different cooking configurations.

No other grill offers so much versatility.

How a Primo Works

Cool air is drawn into the bottom draft door and heated by the lit charcoal.

The heated air circulates around the food before exiting out the top vent. The ceramic shell acts like an insulator so food retains its natural moisture.

Metal grills radiate large amount of heat, which pulls the moisture out of food.

You can use a Primo grill for direct and indirect cooking to grill, bake, roast or smoke.

Virtually any recipe can be made on a Primo.

Popular Cooking Configurations


Fill the firebox with natural lump charcoal. Use the vents to control airflow for perfect grilling temperatures. The shape of the ceramics create convection and an even grilling experience that locks moisture into the food.


Insert the cast iron firebox divider. Fill one side of the firebox with natural lump charcoal. Create two distinct cooking zones using a heat deflector rack and heat deflector plate. This allows you to sear a steak over direct heat while roasting tender vegetables or seafood over indirect heat.


Fill the firebox with natural lump charcoal. Using two deflector racks and heat deflector plates, forms a central zone for full indirect cooking. Bake breads and cakes at 350°F, roast chicken to tender perfection at 425°F, or smoke your favourite BBQ low and slow at 225°F. You can raise the temperature even higher to 550°-650°F creating a wood fired pizza oven.
