1) Using Kingsford K, how long does it take you to huave your Performer ready for grilling (chicken, steak, burgers, etc). Wondering if a Performer would be practical for quick weeknight cooks...

2) How much Kingsford K do you use if you want a temp around 325-350? What about 500-550?

3) Also would love to hear what you guys call "must have" accessories.

I also use my performer at least twice through the week. Usually load the chimney up and light with the gas assist before unlocking my house upon arriving home from work. Go in and start prepping what ever im cooking. I also use the baskets for zone cooking and ease of shut down. I personally prefer Kingsford comp over all the others i have tried. My favorite accessories for my performer are my stok castiron grate and my thermapen !

Pull the trigger, man! The performer is a great and very versatile cooker. Easy to fire up and shut down quickly for weeknight cooks, worktable comes in handy and the propane starter gets you going in very little time.
