A very happy medium

We decided on a Weber kettle - but which to get? This is the grill we chose because it had the features we wanted while being the most cost-effective option. This grill set-up uses the same kettle as all other 22.5 Webers. At first, we were planning on the One-Touch Gold 22.5, but were disappointed that it didn't come with the lid holder and knew a prep surface would be necessary. The One-Touch is $75 less than the Performer Silver. Is it worth that much more for a small table, a shelf, and the lid holder? In the end, I think it is. This grill gives you many of the features of the pricier Performers with the footprint of the One-Touches thanks to a fold-away table.
1. The metal table is handy and wholly heat-proof. It cleans up easily and, being steel, magnets work (nice for our timer and grill light).
2. The hooks, as noted by other reviewers, are basically useless with most tools - we replaced them within two weeks.
3. The ash-cleaner is nice and it gets most of the ash - some ash falls outside the limits of what the baffles can remove (no big deal, though). As a tip, before using, take out the grates and adjust the ash cleaner's baffles to full open, half open, 1/4 open, and closed while marking the handle position with a pen - the range of motion for the baffles is rather large, but most of that range is full open. Weber should mark these for us, in my opinion, since you cannot easily tell how open the baffles are when the grill is in-use.
4. The grill is on two wheels and two locking casters. They prefer a hard, even surface and don't do well with traipsing through the grass (we grill on the lawn). The wheels and casters are plastic, so no major issue with ground contact & rust.

Spring for the chimney starter and the coal baskets, too. Very handy.

First in every way

I was finally able to break-in my Weber last evening after the weather broke. This model certainly lives-up to it's name. The size is perfect, it's heavy-duty where it counts, and most-of-all, this grill is "controllable". No more flare-ups to deal with and I can snuff the fire out afterward which allows me to save on charcoal.

Minor drawbacks would be that...1) the tool hanging fixtures on the front of the grill are not suitable for my grilling tools, 2) the location(s) chosen to hinge the cooking grid, and 3) the offset (right) levers on the one-touch controls.

I did, however, find the tool hanging fixtures ideal for hanging the cooking grid on when needed.

The results last night were phenomenal.....

Amazing!

I made the switch from gas to charcoal. I researched for nearly six months for the perfect grill. I looked at them all, from the $49 portable to the $1200 beast! This grill peaked my interest. At first I thought it was a little pricey, but after comparing quality, it was well worth it. Plus, it went together in a snap, an important feature for anyone.
