Kitchen Ceiling getting smoky/a bit grayish due to cooking smoke

Hello:
I plan to paint 'Kitchen Ceiling' which was painted 'oil-based' pure white long ago and getting smoky/grayish in color.

My question are: After cleaning entire ceiling with soap and water,
(1) Should I paint/apply 'primer' before painting 'oil-based' pure white?
If it's to be ideal, what sort of pirmer is recommendable?
Since it's originally painted 'oil-based' pure white, should I use oil-
based pure-white primer?
Or,
Without apply 'primer,' should I directly re-paint oil-based pure white paint purchased either from Home Depot or Lowes' or any other reputable paint-shops?


Any other useful and helpful hints regarding re-painting Kitchen Ceiling would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

It's been a long time since I've applied oil base enamel to interior walls and I can't remember how it reacts by itself when going over stains

IMO the best plan of attack would be to prime the entire ceiling with an oil base primer and then switch to latex enamel for the top coat. The oil primer will adhere to scuff sanded oil base enamel and the latex will adhere to the oil base primer.

I'm with Mark - oil based primer to cover the staining and then latex paint because oil based paint can yellow over time and therefore I never paint anything white with oil based paint.

..... and modern day latex enamels are a lot better than they used to be - no need to put up with the longer dry time and extra odor.
