I won my Primo Oval XL from a drawing in a smoking/grilling class at Antique Brick Outdoors in Little Rock, AR. At the time I owned a BGE XL, which I promptly sold to my neighbor. I like the Primo it is American made and so much larger and more versatile. I has been perfect. I am a single dad since my wife passed away over 9 years ago and I took over the cooking duty for my three young children. I have use my Primo 99% of the time over my oven. I use it year around in this ever-changing Arkansas weather, hot/cold/wet/dry, and it never lets me down. Every Thanksgiving now for 9 years we have the family over for Thanksgiving, and I cook the turkey on my Primo. It is always juicy and perfect, using only injection and smoke. The Primo has never let me down. When my firebox cracked and It was replaced immediately, no charge. I have had some trouble with looseness and alignment on the lid, but as stated before, adjust your bolts and if you have any trouble just call Primo for great service.
