Performers before 2005 used a 5-lb refillable tank with a quick disconnect. They also had a stainless steel work surface.



Here's a parts diagram at Weber.com for the Performer stainless 5-lb tank model.

Performers since 2005 use a 14-oz standard disposable propane bottle. They also have a thermo-plastic work surface. You can use an adapter hose for the Weber-Q to connect this performer model to a standard 20-lb propane bottle.



Here are links to the adapter hoses on Amazon:

Maybe the way to go is replace the regulator and tank connection with a German one. Then he would just have to worry about the burner to regulator fitting.
