ID:	857516 I said that I was in the market for a new Kamado style egg as my old Akron was blown off the deck and damaged a month ago. Today I bought a new Primo XL400 as I did not want anything from China . There was a Canadian distributor for Primo who had old stock for sale at their cost and this is what I bought today. There are catches with doing this and the big one was they have no carts for them to sit in so I made my own. I have more work to do like cutting the oval hole in my cart and setting it up.

      Thank you I purchased a few options to go with it too including a pizza stone, heat deflector, upper grates and grate tool.I have a cast iron fire box divider on order. I need to find a place to keep it next.

      It sounds like you're all set. I have 2 deflectors, 1 upper grate, a divider, and the ash tool. I also have a fan and controller. Rumor is they are releasing a SS grate later this summer and I think I'll have to pick a couple of those up when they do.

        Not sure which to praise you on more. The new Primo or that table. Very nice work on that table. There. I said it. Praises to the table. 😁.

        On a side note. A friend of mine,years ago, had an Argo. Cool and fun machines. 👊

          Congrats on your new XL. Nice build on the table. Get some help putting setting the Oval in the table.
          If the seller did not have the "cradle" in my opinion you were lucky. Now if he was talking the cart those are pretty darn nice, however the SS side tables are over priced.

            I have tbe cart with stainless tables. Unfortunately, the tables are a little undersized. Your custom cart will be better.

            Forgot to mention my most favorite accessory for the Primo XL. I was never a fan of those D-plate holders that sit on the firebox. They absorb quite a bit of heat and and will eventually start to rust a bit (salt air in Va Beach) in addition a bit of a hassle to set the D-plates on with lump burning.
            I finally broke down after about 7 years and bought the D-plate holders offered by the Cersmic Grill Store (CGS). Are they a necessatiy NO but when the OEM give up the ghost I would pick up a set.

          Great looking table!

          Congrats on the Primo. I have had the XL for about 3 years now and have loved every minute of cooking on it.

                  Congratulations and nice table. You will love the primo!

                  i haven’t used the cast iron divider or plate. Still in the box.

                  I have the Kick ash pan and basket. Those are a must in my opinion.

ID:	857917 Primo Update, I cut the hole in the top this morning and gave it another coat of spar varnish, I am getting closer to final assembly. I also found four ceramic feet in the box so I do not have to wait for them now.

                      maverick PT55 thermometer

                      A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      slow n sear

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

                      the good one grill

                      The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill

                      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      NK-22-Ck Grill

                      Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
