Summary: Our son asked for a Weber charcoal grill for his 30th birthday. The Performer model seemed to be what he needed. It had two features which stood out: 1) The lid holder and 2) a table or space to set items on. I could not find one locally. I am always anxious when ordering on line but the grill arrived on time, undamaged. The assembly instructions were easy to follow and it went together in about 45 minutes. When my son saw the grill he was very pleased.
Summary: After years of cooking with gas, we decided to simplify our lives. We have spent a lot of money on gas grills in the past only to kick them to the curb - literally - within 1 to 3 years. Uneven cooking zones made it impossible to put a decent meal on the table. I used this grill all weekend and was delighted with the consistent results. I'm looking forward to experimenting with different cooking techniques: smoking, slow roasting and using direct and indirect heat.
Summary: Received prompt delivery Saturday, easily assembled and provided a fine heat for Sundays grilled lemon chicken for the family;Tubing is more substantial than my 10 year old Weber grill; like the added convenience of a drop-leaf work table;
Pros: Cooks Efficiently, Large Grilling Surface, Portable
