I'm so happy with my performer, had it about 3 years now and will never have another grill that is not a Weber. It took me about a year too finally breakdown and buy a rotisserie. My, oh my, why did I wait so long. First thing I did was fire up the Weber and load the spit with a couple racks of ribs. 4 1\2 hrs later I had the best ribs I've ever eaten. Just one more reason to love my Weber.
