Answer: 
Its propane gas. The electrical ignition ignites the propane that burns under the charcoal like a gas grill. Turn off propane once charcoals are lit. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
The push button, electric ignition, is a battery operated (1 AAA Battery) spark generator to ignite the propane gas used to start the charcoal in the kettle. Very effective!

Answer: 
The electrical ignition works exactly the same way as it does on a gas BBQ unit. Only the spark that is created ignites the propane which is used to heat the charcoal. Open the valve to the propane gas line, press the igniter button and you are on your way to white, hot charcoal within a matter of minutes. Hope this helps.

Read all my Q&A
September 1, 2014
I noticed that the product has a warning label for California Proposition 65: "This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm."

I am wondering which parts of the grill are impacted by this warning? Is it any part or surface of the grill that comes into direct contact with the food? Thanks!!

I just got a floor model and it didn't come with a propane tank. In the picture it looks like a disposable tank used with blow torches.

Answer: 
My store did. But, I called the store prior to purchasing online. They normally only assemble grills bought in store vs. online, but if you have a great store like mine, you can work with them and have it assembled when it's delivered to the store. Either way, call the customer service desk before you purchase, they may have the same model in store! Hope this helps!

Customer Reviews

Performer Platinum 22-1/2 in. Charcoal Grill in Copper is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of Breed Charcoal BBQ This is the second Performer I have owned and both have been outstanding BBQ's. The gas start system is the easiest way to get charcoal started and burning evenly without the petroleum smell and taste you get from liquid charcoal starters. The features on the new model Performer include a digital timer (very useful) and improved finish on the kettle cover. My first Performer was in almost daily use for over 8 years, and has been retired to a friends patio where it is still in use. In my opinion this is hands down the best charcoal BBQ on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this grill I prefer charcoal grilling much more than gas. In fact, I had a perfectly functioning large, shiny gas grill and gave it away since I was using the charcoal grill that a neighbor was throwing away. When they finally rotted out, I made the wonderful purchase of this grill that has a small propane tank that lets me light the charcoal so I don't have to worry so much about the wind, snow, etc. when trying to light charcoal. I used the grill in 15 degree snowy weather, and lighting the charcoal is a cinch! I just wish I didn't have to get the ultimate high end grill for the propane option. Id on't need the table and the high price, but in the end, I never regret this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weber quality. Superior performance. I can't begin to say enough this Weber BBQ. I've always been a big fan of charcoal and wood pellet BBQ's because of the flavor that they produce. Unfortunately, it's always been a hassle prepping charcoal and I don't enjoy spending 10 minutes heating coals every time I want to make just one burger for myself. The Weber performer totally eliminates that problem. I love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grill I can't say I was surprised by the performance of this grill, given it is a Weber, but I am thoroughly impressed! I've had the unit for a little over a week and have smoked a whole chicken and Boston butt roast - at the same time, done burgers, and a variety of appetizers. Everything turned out perfectly, and I've only used 1/2 a bag of charcoal! The efficiency of the heating is second to none and the gas start feature is incredible. If you want a virtually fool-proof grill, this is the one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been waiting a long time, and now, it's here! After 20 years, or so, with my Weber One-Touch 22 1/2" kettle grill, in fire engine red, I finally upgraded to the Weber Performer Platinum in wonderful copper toned enamel. I'm so pumped up over this grill! It is, without a doubt, one of the smartest purchases I've ever made in a cooking appliance, period. Everything about this grill is fantastic. All the other five star reviews capture what it is that makes this grill so great, I don't feel it's necessary to repeat them here. I'll just say that I've been waiting a long time for this moment, and it's finally here, and I'm so giddy I could ...... grill sun up to sun down, every day! Thanks, Weber! A truly great American company!
