Been contemplating on getting a primo xl to add to my 2 large eggs,mini and egg chimnea. Well today i went and made the purchase,will be delivered tomorrow and also ordered the fire box devider and the stones aka "platesetter"

Why the primo......not sure just been intrigued and beleive that for ribs and brisket the shape would be a great benefit.

After i get it i will post pics and comments of my first cook.

    Cool brother. I agree that for ribs and brisket it just seems to "fit" better.

    Hope you love it man.

    All in all a ceramic cooker is a ceramic cooker .....right

    I would beat steven to a pulp to get my hands on one of those. I always wanted one to do Sicilian Pies, I think you can fit a 1/2 sheet pan in there
    happy in the hut

    I watch for them all the time.
    Wanted one for the same reason.
    I did talk to a dealer that sold both Primo and BGE and he said he had issues with even heat on the Primo XL.
    We did not get into details but if I would stumble across a good price I will still grab one. Qualitly built product as well.
    Let us know how it works.
    Thank you,
