Dude, nothing to dislike about the performance of either. I own a LG BGE and will never be without one. I've heard nothing but good stuff about the Primo as well. If I had to be critical, the BGE is basically permanently where you park it(150 lbs.) and the cooking surface is relatively small. Then there is that price thing! I figure if you can justify it to yourself, then go for it. Rest assured that nothing and I mean nothing will outcook ceramic! Why build a grill out a material that conducts heat when you are trying to insulate it?
