The Primo Grills Story

Since 1996, Primo Grills has been making the highest quality ceramic grills right here in the United States. Primo Grills founder George Samaras was inspired by a Thanksgiving turkey cooked in a traditional Japanese-style ceramic grill known as a kamado.

He named his grills Primo, after the Italian word for best. And for nearly 20 years, Primo Grills have lived up to their name. Their patented oval shape is beloved by people around the world.

You won’t believe how juicy and delicious every piece of meat cooked on a Primo Grill will be.

Primo Ceramic Grill FAQ

Why use a ceramic grill instead of a traditional gas or charcoal grill?

A ceramic grill insulates better than other materials and holds in heat and moisture, cooking juicier food faster than any other grill. Grills with a metal body actually pull moisture away from food, drying it out as it cooks.

Plus a ceramic grill is incredibly versatile. You can use your Primo Grill as an oven, a roaster, and a smoker. Just adjust the airflow and interior configuration.

Are Primo Grills made in the USA?

Yes! Primo Grills is headquartered in a 92,000 square foot facility in Tucker, Georgia. Right in the heart of BBQ country.

Do I need to season or “break in” my grill before cooking on it?

No! All Primo Grills are ready to use right out of the box. You should also know that cracks may appear on the grill’s exterior surface over time. This is known as crazing and is perfectly normal and doesn’t affect your ceramic grill’s performance.

What charcoal should I use?

We recommend that you use only natural lump charcoal made from whole stock hardwood in your Primo Grill. It burns cleanly, burns longer than briquettes, and you’ll love the natural smoky flavor it gives your food.
