Default I finally pulled the trigger -- Primo XL

After reviewing the various ceramic cookers, comparing the pros and cons, and reading posts here on the forum, I decided on the Primo XL. It has what I need, bottom line, plus I like that it is made in the USA.

Thanks to all of those who took the time to discuss the Primo vs. BGE vs. others. It helped. Now to get this puppy smoking.
