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!

Heating Technology

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!

Great Grill

After over 20 years with my previous grill, I was very sad to see it pass into the great beyond. It was a Great Outdoors grill and unfortunately the company is out of business, so buying another one was not possible. I looked around for quite a while for a replacement and eventually, my wife and I settled on the Grilla Primate Grill. There were a few reasons why we chose Grilla Grills: We liked the griddle feature and the solid stainless steel construction of the grill. My wife is an expert at cooking on a flat top griddle (she's been in food service for over 20 years) and though I don't have that kind of skill, I can cook the perfect steak, so we had both avenues to creating a great meal covered. We wanted a grill that would 'go the distance' as my previous grill had without spending top dollar for a grill that was only partly stainless steel or was made of inferior materials or had too much technology. When we learned that the Grilla Grill was all stainless steel, we jumped at the chance to get a great grill at a great price. Sure, we could have purchased a lesser grill, but we were looking at the prospect of buying another one after 5 years, and spending more money...that didn't work for either of us. We liked the straightforward design of the grill, it seemed to have everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. Sure, there are grills with high-tech wizardry, but honestly, how long do those bits of electronics last? A year, maybe two? Then're left with a grill that still works, but that electronic doodad that you paid extra for is now adorning a trash bag and since you've become accustomed to using it, you don't use the grill as much. I've discovered that circuit boards, grease and heat do not make good bedfellows, so we opted to keep the grill as simple as possible while allowing us to control the temperature of the grill much more precisely that we could have with my old grill. We also liked the simplicity of assembly...though neither of us are mechanical experts, we managed to get the grill put together in about 2 hours with basic hand tools. We took our time and ensured we did it right and we cooked a great meal afterwards, so we knew it was 100%. We are about six months in with this grill and so far, so good. Only time will tell if the Grilla can go the distance as my other grill did. Based on what we are seeing though, we will be cooking on a Grilla Grill for quite some time!

Gorilla Grill

The grill went together easy and was well built. Wish the paper towel holder had the option of on the left side. And getting used to the heat on my wrists while cooking on the griddle. I may do some modifications with my tig welder on the stainless. Overall very impressed!!
