All About Deflector Plates for Primo XL Oval

Most common uses for the deflector plates:

  • Set two plates on deflector racks to smoke, low & slow barbeque: or
  • Set one plate on a deflector rack to create dual temperature zones when grilling.

Two brand options:

We offer Primo brand deflector plates and our own, Ceramic Grill Store (CGS), deflector plates. Both deflector plates are "D" shape and same thickness. CGS Plates provide a bit more coverage as they have longer straight sides and sharper corners.

Primo deflector plates come two (pair) in a box. CGS plates come as a single or pair.

How deflector plates work:

The deflector plates block the heat as it rises from the fire. In ceramic grill circles, this is called an indirect set-up and is key to smoking barbeque or creating dual zones when grilling.

When smoking low & slow barbeque, you need to use two plates. If you want to grill and create two temperature zones, a fire side and non-fire side, you use one plate over the non-fire side.

Deflector Racks are required

Deflector racks are required, as they hold the plates under the cooking grids. Each plate needs a deflector rack. The rack hangs down inside the fire bowl. The process is simple: set the rack, set the deflector plate on the rack and add the cooking grid, usually in up an position.

Two brand options:

We offer Primo and Ceramic Grill Store deflector racks. CGS racks provide more flexibility to access the lump and have the ability to hold a wok. We can offer Plates and Racks at better prices because of our volumes. We pass the savings on to you.
