Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kitsap2 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!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luv2BBQ 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!!!

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!

I have used the Weber charcoal grill for the past 30 years. We recently stepped up to this grill. The igniter function is great and easy to use. I am a 60+ y.o. female and put it together myself. Assembly was easy to do. Highly recommend!
