Always Bought Cheap Grills...What's the Difference

We are adverse to name brands. It is not that we won't buy quality, but so many name brands are not quality. So when I looked at Weber charcoal grills at $300 bucks or the $50 big store special I figure I can buy 6 grills compared to one. They all have metal, grate and handles, so what is the difference? We were wrong.

This is our first Weber. We wanted Charcoal, and we decided to go with this grill. Why the platinum instead of the gold if we are money conscience? I wanted the quick propane starter. Was it worth the extra $50? You betcha'. My wife was skeptical, but she loves it so very much. The ease of a gas grill with the smokey flavor of charcoal.

The craftsmanship and engineering of this grill makes all the difference. We liked the meat we cooked on the cheap grills, but it was nothing all that special. Now? Wow! I cannot begin to tell you how much more we enjoy our grilled meats now. The difference is so great that we now grill at least 3 times a week.

Quality is awesome, you can see that with the store display. Cooking performance is better than the quality. I obviously do not know how durable the product will be as it is new, but it looks like it will last more than a decade as long as I care for it by covering it from the elements. As I look at it it will far outlast 6 cheap grills from the store so even if the grilling was not so much better it would still be a better value.

Don't be like me. Get a Weber first and find out why people love to grill. I just now found out after 50 years.

Hands Down The Best Grill I Have Owned

-Charcoal is the only way to go

-Easily cleaned

-Light weight, wife and I can load it in the back of the truck for a trip to park or beach

-Great for smoking and low heat cooking for long periods of time using the snake method.

-high heat cooking using lump coal

Turned Us Into Everyday Grillers

We absolutely love this grill. We went from being occasional grillers to using our grill nearly every day. It is easy to ignite the coals, heats up fast, and cooks quickly and evenly. Instructions are easy to follow, and when you follow them the food turns out great EVERY TIME! Perfect size, convenient features, fits everything you want to cook. Weber thought of every detail when they were designing this. Turned us in to absolute fanatics!

Just got my weber performer

What a stroke of luck I received last weekend. A guy decided he did not like charcoal grills and parted with his weber performer top of the line model for 100. For that, I received the grill, full propane tank and gas lines. What a steal, all I did was replace the grills, handle, and some screws. Cleaned it up and now I have a world class charcoal kettle grill to match my weber genesis silver b. To say it is an amazing grill is an understatement. I am looking forward to cooking with charcoal and gas now. Weber products are the best And that is why I own three of them. They age perfectly and always work and the service and warranty is world class. Thanks weber for being one of a handful of companies they get it.

Top notch performance (would you expect anything less?)

I received this grill 7 years ago as a Christmas gift from my fiancé (now my wife). I live in NE Ohio where the weather is very extreme and unpredictable, although still grill and barbecue year round. The Performer has withstood the test of time and brutal winter and the heat of summer without signs of excessive wear and tear.

For our anniversary my wife bought me a Weber wok, griddle, and gourmet cooking grate. I haven't used the griddle as much as I have used the wok, although it has come in handy when I've needed it. Nothing beats this wok as it heats up and holds the heat better than my carbon steel wok on the stove.

I have been able to cook many different foods on the Performer that I wasn't able to on my wife's Char Br*il grill. I have barbecued leg of lamb several times, roast turkey (yes, for Thanksgiving!) and prime rib, smoked beef brisket, made coal fired pizzas (use a separate set of baskets for this as the coal will contaminate), and baked cakes and brownies.

I don't have many accessories that Weber sells and have gotten along fine without them. Nothing against them, they're probably quite useful and I'm certain that I would probably use them if I had them. I just don't have the storage space.

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.
