Dude, I'm not selling primos here. Just saying it is a nice bit of kit.Cookinbob said:First of all, no one sells Primo in my part of the country, so it was never a consideration. Secondly, I don't get the fascination with the split firebox on the Primo, I have an XL, and if I am doing steaks, I build a fire with the lump pushed to one side, cook to IT on the indirect side, rest, then reverse sear on the direct side. If I want to bake dessert later, I spread the coals, add the plate setter, and am ready to go. I cannot speak for smaller eggs, but with a little ingenuity (much learned on this forum), you can do about anything on the XL egg. As you all know, there are lots of other ways to split the firebox, from fire bricks to purchased accessories.I know a couple of guys in TX who are happy with their Primos, but I am an Egger and glad to be.
