I have a family friend that does estate sales.  There is a Primo grill that looks to be in pretty good shape for sale.  She is out of state so I haven't seen it in person and don't know anything about it, just a picture with the lid closed.  About the same size as a large Egg.  Anyone have any thoughts or experience with them?  I think I may see if I can get it for a steal but it is roughly the same size as my large and I plan on adding a small egg down the road.  Thanks in advance.

    Round or oval if its round and a great price I'd pick it up . Never really heard anything bad about them I just don't like the oval no PS available for it last I heard

  • When doing my due diligence before I bought the egg, I looked into these and didn't hear anything bad about them.  If I remember correctly, they are American Made.  Didn't get to actually see one because there are no local dealers in my area.  They might be close enough in size you can use your eggcessories, so I'd try to get it

    My friend has the Primo XL Oval - Its nice.  He has the ceramic indirect stones, raised/multiple grids.  He used the BBQ guru on it and the food comes out very good.  He got me started on the Egg journey.  The Oval XL is larger than the BGE large but not the BGE XL.
