Arguably the Primo is slightly better than a BGE.

If I am remembering correctly you have ability to cut the fire box in half with the bigger Primo models and only cook with half the unit.

I think the guy who started Primo was originally partnered with the guy who started BGE. There was a falling out between the partners and Primo came about. I think Primo is out of SC and BGE is out of GA.

Never used one, but I doubt that you would be disappointed. From what I have read over the years, the Primo is a very high quality cooker.

As to being better than the others, I would have to think the differences would be negligible since they all cook under the same principle.

Right in line with the BGE and Kamodo. Ceramic cookers are expensive and heavy.

I got one. Love it. Mine is the xl. The factory is in Norcross. Me and a buddy went up there and picked up 2 blem models with all accessories for 880 apiece . But that was maybe 8 yrs ago. Couldn't find anything wrong with either to call them blems.

Sounds like a novel idea JB. Might have to swing by there on my next trip north.
