One other thing I'll say about the Touch n Go system -- I'm not a fan of the propane bottle placement. I may be the odd man out here, but I like to keep the wire rack shelf under the grill uncluttered so I have a convenient place to set down a hot chimney starter, and I also like to put the lid down there when I want it completely out of the way and prefer to not set it right on the patio cement. Those little camp propane bottles are small enough but it hangs straight down in front so a touch extra caution is necessary not to bump it.
I wanted a Performer for the nice, large table, primarily, and even though I do use the gas assist starter I can see myself not replacing bottles once I use them up. I find starter cubes just as easy.
