Using primo grills is easy after you learn some basic things. This post will take you through what you need to know to get started with your primo grill and much more.

So, let’s dig in…

Making the Most of Your Primo Grill

A Primo Grill does a lot more than simply grill food. You can use it to bake, roast, and smoke as well.

Thanks to a few components, a Primo Grill is able to offer so much versatility. These components are the lower draft door, reversible cooking grates, the top vent which is controlled through a daisy wheel, and the divided firebox.

As the primo grill guide will tell you, you can set the right cooking temperature and pick the right cooking method for your foods by changing the flow of lower draft door and top vent and charcoal configuration in firebox.


Some important Primo Grill Instructions that will help you get the maximum out of your Primo Grill are as follows:

  • Lighting the Primo Grill

Create a small mound of charcoal lump. Depending on your need, you can use full firebox or half firebox of natural charcoal.

  1. Using an electric start or chimney starter light charcoal. You can also use one or two fire starter cubes for this purpose. Ensure the dome is open.
  2. Wait a little while (5 to 10 minutes) till you see a tiny  bed of embers
  3. Put the lid on the dome, following which completely open both the top vent and draft door.
  • Controlling Temperature
  1. Ensure the dome is fully covered and then open the grill’s top vent completely.
  2. When the temperature is 14°C (25°F) lower than your desired temperature, close two-third of the top vent.
  3. The temperature should stabilize within a minute or two. You can decrease or increase airflow to regulate the temperature. Moving the lid by 6mm can alter the temperature by up to 14°C.
  • Low-Temperature Cooking 
  1. You should begin with a small fire if you need low temperature like 107°C (225°F)
  2. Leaving the top vent and draft door completely open, shut the dome. When the temperature rises to 93°C (200°F), open draft door by 25mm (1”) and top vent by 13mm (1/2 “). You can adjust the grill’s tope vent to maintain your desired temperature.
