The Primo Oval XL400 Smoker displays the patented oval shape for which Primo has become famous. This shape and the divider plate enable two types of cooking at once - direct and indirect. This ceramic cooker produces even heat and flavorful foods such as steaks, chops and burgers. There is an extra-large cooking surface of 680 square inches which will accommodate even the largest roasts. All Primo Grills include a lower vent door that is made from stainless steel, a cast iron chimney cap and reversible cooking grates. The easy to read thermometer allows you to keep a watch on cooking temperature while the large sturdy handle makes opening and closing the lid easy. We stock and display Oval XL400 grills in our Atlanta showroom.
Lighter fluid should never be used in a Primo. For best results, use Primo natural lump charcoal, which is free of tars and other harmful chemicals, so it won't compromise the taste of your food.
The constant opening and closing of the grill may cause tension in the hinge over time. Make sure to lubricate the moving parts inside the hinge at least twice a year to keep the mechanism operating smoothly.
To ensure your lid stays securely held by the hinge bands, frequently check and tighten the band bolts using an open end wrench.
Occasionally check the ash trap and remove excess ash with the recommended Primo ash tool by simply raking the cooled remains out of the bottom vent door and into a receptacle for disposal.
