It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Egg vs Primo

Just wondering if the internals of the large BGE and platesetter are compatible with the equivalent sized Primo kamado.

    Not really that familiar with Primos, but I think they are oval instead of round.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • I think there is also a round Primo...just not sure how close the dims are to the BGE large.

    The "large-sized" has an 18.5 inch cooking grid. I'm pretty sure accesories would be interchangeable, but I don't know about the fire box or ring.

    I think the drop from fire ring to felt line on the primo round is close to 2 inches. So, the platesetter would push the grid above the felt line.....dome should still close, but I'd check.
