Great Grill

This grill provides the convenience of a gas grill with the taste and performance of a quality charcoal grill. It's so easy to light and to start that it quickly becomes the grill of choice over gas. I just purchased the Genesis E-330 series and I also now purchased the Performer Platinum because I like the taste of charcoal. I now have both for all my grilling needs. I put both grills together and both were so easy and quick to assemble. I just love these grills!!!!

Awesome performance

I have used barrel type grills and large smokers happily for many years, but when it cam time to replace my 10 year old barrel cooker I decided to go with the performer platinum from Weber. Best decision ever; I can't believe the years wasted cooking on anything else. It heats evenly, is easy to adjust, and the gas lighting system is a god send. From indirect smoking slow and low to searing steaks this grill does it all and looks good doing it. I'm a Weber fan for life!

All I need in 1 package

2 years ago I came across a 'Performer' given to me. That is when my life took a turn.
I (then) was a beginning griller and after a little over a year I was fully in love with my grill. Then I saw the new Performer with the new coal lighting feature and it was time for a new grill. The coal lighter is a BIG help and makes a great difference. I smoke and charbroil my food daily and living in San Diego the weather permits me to but even on the 2 or so rainy days we get a year it works just as well.
I just learned (after watching the video) that the large black bin on the front is not a trash can but a coal storage box which I'll fill up today. The cutting board is perfectly sized and the bottom rack is great for storage.
I post most of what I cook to my friends on FaceBook and have a small loyal fan base. Which makes me soo proud.
I highly recommend this grill it is PERFECT! The only complaint I have is that there is no cubby hole to store my electronic meat thermometer.
Happy Grilling....................JOE I

Best Grill I have ever owned!

I got my grill right before Memorial day. I had never cooked ribs before but with this grill, and the charcoal boxes it was a breeze! I only had to use one charcoal box to keep my grill at the optimum temp. of 250 degrees for six hours for my baby back ribs. I use the charcoal boxes for chicken and it does a great job. My chicken comes out perfect every time. The gas ignition for the charcoal is just too fab!
This grill is well built and easy to use and clean.
My son in law has a regular Weber grill that he has had for years, and it's hard to believe it's as old as it is.
Some reviews say the performer is expensive, but for a product that will probably last the rest of my life it is well worth the price.

Awesome grill, even better customer service.

Absolutely love this grill! I've owned many grills over the past 18 years and I must say that this is by far the best ever!! There is one negative, when I received the grill there was some porcelain-enamel missing from the One Touch Cleaning System scraping it off the bottom of the bowl. I sent an e-mail to customer service and in less than a hour I had a telephone chat with a rep and an e-mail confirmation that a new bowl was being sent to me! I wasn't even looking to get a new bowl just want them to be aware of the manufacturing defect! I so LOVE Weber!!!!!

Love this Platinum Performer Charcoal Grill

I have owned a Weber 1100 LP Gas Grill since 1995 and still love it. However, a couple weekends ago I was a friends home and we grilled out on his Weber charcoal grill. I couldn't believe how great the food was cooked over charcoal instead of gas.

The reason I bought the Weber gas grill back in 1995 was that I didn't want to fool around with lighter fluid and manually lighting the grill. However, this Weber Platinum Performer Charcoal grill has a gas starter to light the charcoal. What a great idea! It works great and the food tastes so much better cooked over charcoal.

The only thing about the grill I think isn't worthwhile is the timer. It is just a basic one, and can only be set for 99 minutes. That isn't enough time for things like turkey.

Everything else is great. I really like the one touch ash clean up with the catch pan to catch the ashes. I also like the charcoal storage bin, handy accessory. And having a thermometer on the lid is a great help in order to control temperatures.

My father owned a Weber charcoal grill back in the late 70's. I think it may have been a little bit more heavy duty, but was pretty basic. I hope my new grill lasts as long as my Weber Gas grill. I still plan to use the gas grill for certain kinds of cooking where the charcoal flavoring isn't as important.

Best Charcoal Grill on the Market

Six years ago I was ready to upgrade from my hand me down 15 year old Charcoal Weber grill. It was still in great condition but I was tired of manually dumping the ashes, and using lighter fluid was a pain, so I wheeled my old Weber grill out front and put a free sign on it, a neighbor walking by asked if he could take it, and with a heavy heart I said yes, it's yours. It was hard to part with my old Weber until I started using this one. Out with the old and in with the new. No more lighter fluid, no more manually dumping ashes, this grill cooks evenly and is always consistent. I love the thermometer it helps me regulate the heat. Over the last six years I have cooked steak, tri tips, fish, veggies, whole chicken, whole turkey their is nothing this grill cannot do and as usual it has held up perfectly. I am a Weber fan and always will be, you might spend more money upfront on the grill but this grill will last you a lifetime. In the last six years, I have only changed the grates everything else is still like new. Our summers get hot, No doubt this is the best Charcoal grill. If you can afford to spend the extra money, do it you will not be disappointed.

Gas-assist is a good idea.

Gas-assist (Touch-N-Go) frees you from having to use a chimney or lighter fluid. And it does work, unless possibly you *cough* use a tank Weber didn't intend *cough*, or so I've been told. Should you have a problem, you've registered your grill here, contacted Weber, and they sent you a replacement part so fast it'll make your head spin. Done.

If you ever do need to light manually, crappy chimneys are less than $10 at the hardware store but the better-designed ones from Weber are still less than $20 and worth it --- don't use lighter fluid and don't use briquets with fuel pre-soaked in it.

2013 is said to be the last year for the available blue color, by the way.
