Finally broke down and got a Performer
 
After wanting, not needing by any means, a Weber Performer Platinum for about two years, I bought one. The thing that pushed me over the edge was the fact I wanted a blue one and they just discontinued it, so I figured I had better get one while I can. I plan to cook my first grilled pizza ever on it later tonight.

Congrats. Performer is a great grill. Post the pics of the pizza.

Great grill. You'll love it.

Been burning on mine for 4 years now and love it.

Here are some assembled and seasoning photos. I used the propane torch to start my chimney like many people recommended. This thing will be a fantastic chimney starter for my charcoal smokers if nothing else, heh. Can't wait to see how my pizza turns out later on this thing.

Definitely a great grill!

Looks awesome.

I'm jealous you got a blue one! The performer is a great setup. Kettles are versatile, but the added burner for starting charcoal, work surface, and storage make it a real winner.

Sweet grill

Great looking set up!!

Started smoking some italian sausage to crumble up on top of the pizza later. I used some pecan wood, hoping for a light smoke flavor since the pizza itself will be grilled too.

Brings back memories, mine looked that clean 6 months ago :) It really is a sweet grill, only gripe is I wish they made a 26in model :heh:

Very nice...the blue definitely cook better!
