I don't do well with picture instructions but perseverance pays off and I got this grill together. I did use a cordless drill rather than the Phillips head screw driver shown in the instructions; it was much faster and easier on the hand, too. The hinged cooking grate will be quite useful when charcoal needs to be added as will the ash catcher when it's time to dump them. No more flying ashes as is the case with the 18 inch Weber I have now that are caught in an aluminum pie pan.
But I have to agree with the other reviews of this grill when it comes to the utensil hooks being pretty much useless unless one uses tools that have the rawhide ties on their hanging ends. Replacing my present set with this type of hanger or searching for rawhide strips (shoelaces?) was not something I considered. I solved this problem with my set by using nickel plated O rings and nickel plated key rings. I used 1 1/2 inch O rings which Home Depot stocks as well as the 2 inch size and they also sell the key rings for this project.
I threaded the O ring onto the key ring and then threaded the key ring through the loop on the hanging end of my grilling tools. Ta-da! This problem was quickly solved and when it comes time to put the tools away the O and key rings lay flat for storage. The grilling tongs are just hung over the metal tubing that the grill bowl is bolted to.

Bought my first house and was excited to finally be able to grill. I already had a small weber gas grill for tailgating that has been in the closet for a couple years and decided I wanted to get a charcoal grill. Felt like a Weber Kettle was the way to go and have been completely happy with it. Debated between the OTG and the Performer Silver and ultimately went with the Performer Silver for the lid rack and the side table and have been happy with that decision. The side table is well designed and folds flush when not in use to decrease storage footprint which was important for me with a small patio. The side table is plenty sturdy for holding any food/tools/beer you may want to set on it. As a newcomer to charcoal grilling and smoking, this grill has been easy to use and versatile enough to grill steaks and kabobs and smoke ribs and boston butts with equal ease.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Opusx324 Weber The best charcoal BBQ out there!
Well to start I'm a loyal amazon.com shopper but, Home Depot gave me an offer I couldn't refuse free shipping and I saved $55.00 thanks Home Depot! Now for my Weber kettle review. I've owned a weber kettle before and would never buy another bbq except a weber!!! This bbq is perfect for my patio with the fold down table and the holder for the cover. It also has a thermometer which is helpful as well. I am a bbq aficionado so this bbq is highly recommend! I would purchase the aluminum charcoal baskets as well this is a must have asscesory for smoking or indirect cooking if you can't find it here you will find it on Amazon. One last thing please purchase a cover to protect your investment!

I haven't owned a grill in a long time and was eager to get a new one for my new place. I knew Weber was a good product overall and I found one that fits my budget and lifestyle. Its charcoal, easy to use and sturdy. Very nice looking and not bulky or hard to move. perfect for my use
