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.

Which parts of the grill are affected by the California Proposition 65 warning?

Asked by

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome grill This grill is by far one of the best we have ever owned. I bought it as a birthday gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it. We have owned many grills in our 25 years together, large and small. This is a great grill. The cooking performance is hands down one of the best and we really like the charcoal baskets it comes with so you can use indirect heat. Also the electronic starter gets an A + . It is nice to cook without adding all the chemicals. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! April 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice looking Once we got it put together it was Great, however there was a screw missing with the handle and I didn't want to go to hassle of return or trying to get parts so my brother found one. I love the storage for charcoal, timer, and counter space. The color was why I purchase it, because it goes with the copper post caps on my deck. I would have gave it 5 stars if the screw would not have been missing. May 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase Decision Absolutely LOVE my new grill. Just as other reviewers have said, may be an investment for the price but well worth it. I truly believe you get what you pay for! The propane/gas ignition helps to burn my charcoal nice and evenly and pretty fast. Once the charcoals are burning good, turn the propane/gas off and continue to cook on charcoal. I highly suggest getting a charcoal chimney to help burn the charcoal. Not only is this a Weber, which I expect to last for years, but it is also VERY nice looking in my backyard. The cutting/prep table is a nice add along with the charcoal storage. I didn't think much of the charcoal storage when I bought the unit, but its a very nice addition. Well worth the price! I highly suggest buying it from Home Depot and having them assemble it! Made it a breeze! I picked up and grilled the same day! Great customer service at Home Depot as well! Love shopping there! May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You'll Love It Same Weber quality I have expected over the years - my third - wore out the last 2. More bells and whistles but same grilling I love about Weber. September 16, 2014
