Yes Kinda. I have a primo xl. All i can say is WOW. You will never go back if you get one. There are lots of brands of ceramic cookers out there. The good ones are the Primo , Big Green Egg and Komod Kamado.
They all offer different things. Check them all out before you decide.

I did a 22lb turkey in my primo this year. Every year before that i fried my turkey. Never again! I could not believe the turkey was more moist and had more flavor then the fried one.

I think my next new toy in the summer is going to be a large egg.

Yes it is a brand. They make an oval grill. Its cool because you can set each side up differently. Check it out.

Both are good grills. I looked at both and went with the primo. I liked it better because of the oval shape. You can set each side up differently, or you can cook indirect by having the fire on one side and food on the other. Check out some pics on the link below.

Not my link. Just using it to show you pics.

I belive Don Marco has both. He would be a good person to ask the pro's and cons of both.

I have the large BGE and would not take for it. Everyone that eats food off of it can't believe the difference. Highly recommend.

Hola - Coma Estas - Me esposa es de Reynosa Mexico. Nosotrous viajar Reynosa tres or quatro veses per ano.

I have a Grill Dome and am real happy with it.

All sites have a forum to learn more about how to use them and problems some of the brands have had in the past.
