Step By Step Guide to Lighting and Controlling the Tempature of your Primo Ceramic Grill

7 months ago 219 Views No comments


Instructions


Lighting the Grill

Build a mound of natural lump charcoal. Use full firebox of charcoal for smoking and searing temperatures (Figure 1), or half a firebox of charcoal for two-zone cooking (Fig. 2).

  1. Light the charcoal with a fire starter cube or two, and you can also use chimney starter or electric starter. Leave the dome open.
  2. Wait 5-10 minutes for the charcoal to build a small bed of embers.
  3. Close the dome, then fully open the draft door (Figure 3) and fully open the top vent (Figure 4) by sliding the top disk all the way to the right.

Tip: Charcoal can be relit 2-3 times for multiple cooks. Use the ash tool to stir the used charcoal, so the ashes will drop through the fire grate. Add 30% new charcoal to the existing charcoal and build a new mound. This works well for roasting and grilling temperatures.

Tip: You can't have too much charcoal, but you can have too little.

Advisory: NEVER use lighter fluid or any other combustible liquid to light the charcoal. It will be absorbed by the ceramics and impart a "fuel" taste to food.

Controlling the Temperature (Grilling)

  1. Close the dome and fully open the top vent.
  2. When you are 25°F (14°C) from your target temperature, close the top vent down to one-third open.
  3. Wait 1-2 minutes for the temperature to stabilise. Increase or decrease the airflow of the top vent as needed. A 1/4” (6mm) move can change the temperature by as much as 25°F (14°C).



Low Temperature Cooking (Smoking)

  1. For "low and slow" temperatures like 225°F (107°C), start with a very small fire in one area of the charcoal.
  2. Close the dome after 5 minutes with the draft door and top vent fully open. Allow the temperature to come up slowly until it reaches 200°F (93°C), set the draft door to 1” (25mm) open (Fig. 5) and the top vent to 1/2” (13mm) open with the daisy wheel holes fully open. Adjust the top vent as needed to maintain the target temperature.

Tip: Allow the temperature to rise slowly up to your target temperature. It is easy to raise the temperature, but very difficult to lower it.
