Primate Gas Grill & Griddle
The Grilla Grills Primate is one of the most versatile grilling beasts we’ve ever dreamed up. With all of the function of a high-end griddle AND gas grill, this steak-searing, hash-slinging Primate is the answer to your propane prayers. With heavy-duty stainless steel construction, safe & easy to clean grease management, and an insulated hood this beast clearly meets Grilla Grills high-standards of quality!
A Rugged Exterior Built for the Elements
If you know Grilla Grills, you know we base everything we build on heavy-duty stainless steel so your grill is around for the long haul. We know that if you're going to put a high-end grill and griddle combination in your backyard, you want it to look great, and be tough enough to withstand the elements. This beautiful grill beast will look fantastic on your patio whether it's alone, next to a smoker, or placed next to our outdoor kitchen setup!
The Primate is a gas powered cooking machine and can be fueled by a propane tank, or by hooking it up to a natural gas source. (Natural Gas hookup sold separately.) With four lines of burners which can be run together, or independently, the Primate pumps out 60,000 BTU of cooking power!
When starting your Primate, the electrical igniter will continue to spark as you hold down the soft-rubber toggle. Once one burner is ignited, the subsequent burners will automatically ignite without having to depress the ignition button again, as long as they are open for gas to flow.
Double-Wall Insulated Lid
We've heard time and time again that wind is a killer when working on a gas grill or griddle. Nobody wants a breezy day to ruin a good cook, and we definitely don't want to put our grill away for winter either! So how did we fix that? With Grilla Grills signature double wall insulation. We ensured the lid to our grill and griddle will hold in that heat your Primate is working so hard to pump out. So no matter the conditions, you're able to rock out some incredible edible treats for the family!
ClearView Grease Management System
When we tested this grill, and asked our owners what was most important to them, we found grease management to be a huge sticking point! Because of that, we spent extra time to design a dual-reservoir system that will make grease-trap clogs and overflow a thing of the past.
With our ClearView Grease Management System the Primate will give you the ability to monitor your runoff better than ever. When the griddle is in use, a large drain opening will allow you to watch as the grease drains into your easy-clean stainless steel hopper. You'll be able to easily monitor the drain, and it's housing, to ensure the tunnel is clear of debris.
While being used as a grill, there is a large grease catch that spans the entire length of the cooking surface. When you want to clean the tray, simply pull the handle at the front of the unit and the entire shelf will come out, allowing you to clean it out without having to go inside the body of your grill!
Built From the Ground Up with Your Feedback
This piece of equipment is something we’ve been working on behind the scenes for YEARS. We’ve been listening to the complaints and suggestions the community had about other gas grills/griddles and doing everything we can to make this the toughest, most convenient one on the market. This grill never would have been a possibility without the support and feedback that people like you have been sharing with us since we started with the OG years ago. So thank you for helping us to make something that we think, is the most impressive combination gas grill & griddle on the market!

Love to see quick reviews like this John, short and sweet. Thanks!
First shipment had damaged parts. Customer service was absolutely fantastic and immediately shipped a whole new grill. Setup was easy. Made a great breakfast on the griddle as my first meal. Love my purchase!
Looks great on your deck there Richard. Thanks so much for sharing this review!
The Grilla Grill is an excellent product. Well built. Easy to assemble. Love the 2/3 griddle accessory. The only improvement I can think of is to have some type of built-in leveling device for the griddle that is easily adjustable. Other than that, this is a great product!
We actually JUST came out with a new levelling kit for the Primate Donald. Check it out and you'll be able to see how it can help!
As a griddle I wish it had a way to level. The only drawback from the system that would improve it. Money well spent otherwise.
We actually just released a new levelling kit for the Primate, you can get it on our website!
The grill is high quality and well built. It was designed very well for easy of assembly . The instructions could use some improvements and little more clarity in some areas.
