Primo kamado test

Lump charcoal is used with Kamado cooking and when this combines with the ceramic self-contained vessel, food retains moisture during searing, grilling, or smoking. Most electric grills are unable to sear food because they cannot generate such high temperatures. Charcoal grills have one more thing going for them: they provide better flavor than gas or electric grills do. It is better to use lump charcoal than briquettes because this is quicker lighting, burns longer, reaches higher temperatures, and creates less ash, making it eco-friendly.

This one features three fully controllable gas burners that provide adjustable cooking temperature of up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat retention ability of the porcelain enameled cast iron cooking grate provide great searing results on any type of meat. The cooking surface measures 418 square-inches which is enough to cook approximately thirty burgers at the same time, making it a great option for those people wishing to entertain large gatherings. The built-in warming rack is perfect for toasting your burger buns or hot dog rolls, or even slow cooking food under a closed lid. A hideaway compartment conceals your propane tank and unsightly connecting hoses.

The Kamado Joe Classic is an elegant, well-crafted ceramic cooker that presents strong competition to other 18-inch models in the premium-priced market. This company pays attention to detail and offers upgrades, like top-quality 304 stainless steel cooking grates, as standard features while holding its prices just a bit lower than the other guys. In 2014, Kamado Joe introduced a unique multilevel grate and heat deflection system called "Divide and Conquer," which comes standard with this model at no extra charge. The system is a grouping of multilevel racks and deflectors that relieves some of the pain and cost of creating different cooking zones in a round kamado.

Returning to the Primo versus Big Green Egg debate - the daisy wheel draft vent on the top of the Primo is screwed into position so that when you lift the lid, there's no chance that it will fall off and because of the mounting position you shouldn't loose the draft aperture. The daisy wheel falling off has never happened to me and if you sit your daisy wheel on your egg with the hinge facing the front then you too will keep the draft aperture constant when you open the lid so I don't see the point of screwing it on. In addition, the Big Green Egg comes with a separate ceramic cover lid that I find useful because:

  1. When I've finished cooking it helps kill the fire quickly and this saves charcoal.
  2. I can leave the ceramic lid on in all weather.
  3. I can easily remove the daisy wheel to clean it. This is an important point because the daisy wheel does get tarred up and will after a number of cookouts stick in position. It will loosen up when your fire gets going but if it seizes in the closed position you can't easily start your fire without unscrewing the whole unit. You could of course leave the vent in the open position but then that would allow rain inside the Primo when you are not using it and how would you kill the fire when you finished cooking?
