Primo and Egg are both nice. But since you asked get a Pit Barrel Cooker and a Chargriller Akorn. You will have about 700.00 dollars left over for meat and beer. Or just beer. Yep that's it. Beer

I preferred the new one at home depot. I just got one, it's gray and comes set in a cart/table.

Edit: It's 30$ more than the Lowe's one ($329.99)

Wierd, must be the location. Here in my area it was 329.99 and Discover sent me a 10% off coupon for HD as well as 5% cash back this quarter..lol.

Yeah, as great as the bge is, after reading into it, i personally prefer the kamado joe and primo, especially in the xl sizes.

But ya, I would also recommend getting an akorn and maybe a wsm or pbc.

I can't seem to find it listed online on Home Depot's site. When did they start carrying this?

The Primo is a super fine kamado. I'm a fan of them as well as the Kamado Joe and Big Green Egg. Out of the three, I think the Kamado Joe is the best bang for the buck because of it's price point. As far as cooking is concerned, I don't think there is a dime's difference between the three.

The oval shape of the Primo XL sets it apart. Of course that all depends on your budget. If you are tight for money, the UDS + chargriller option is not a bad way to go. I have a Primo and big daddy smoker (UDS). When I am smoking low and slow, I use the UDS. The Primo is used more for grilling these days, but works very well for smoking too.
