This. Custom stainless steel table on a grey Performer would be way cool.....

I would agree. How about a butcher block? Gotta be able to get enough wood for even $50 to do that, some glue, clamps and sanding, little mineral oil and you are in bidness :)

The butcher block is a good idea. I ran this through my head several times. A mix of hardwoods cut in 1" wide by 2" thick strips. Run them though a joiner on the 2" side and then use outdoor epoxy, glue them together and clamp. When it all sets up, have the entire slab planed to finish. Then cut out the circle and radius the edges. finish sand and then seal with mineral oil. You have the cover so it should last a long time between added oil treatments. May cost more than $50. But would that set off the gray kettle and look way cool. You'd have a one of a kind............

All great ideas, I'll see how creative I feel after checking out prices of materials. I'd say right now I'd lean towards the SS top, but the butcher block does sound cool.

If you do SS, make sure to have the outside edges bent 1" down on a 90* angle. This will make it not only look better but much safer.

I personally think you might be able to live with that crack. Also might ask him if he can call and have the table fixed before you pick it up b/c its probably still under warranty.

So in less than a week I bought a clean Smokey Joe for $4 and a fairly clean Performer for $100, tis been a good week.
That full tank of propane is worth 45 dollars in Memphis if you're paying for the tank too. I'd call that a score at 100 dollars for the whole kit.

Already picked it up yesterday. I've called about a replacement table, its $58 + $7 for shipping. It's a 2006 model, so not sure if they'd cover it, especially since I'm not the original owner.

Yep, they are $49.99 down here in the Houston area, I have a 1 propane tank for my turkey fryer/crawfish boiler/homebrew maker, been wanting a backup.

If its a Weber cover, they cost 40-50.00 alone, 40.00 for a tank full of propane.

So I figure you have about 20.00 in the grill. Get the new table from Weber and you have a new Cool Grey Performer.

I have a '77 grey 18.5 daisy wheel kettle. It's a different grey color though.

Be sure and post your Performer with the new table. I am picking up my second SS Performer and a SS Platinum on Sat. The Performer eliminates all of the negatives of using charcoal.

You know you might call Weber customer service and mention that you received a Performer as a gift and the table broke.

You know what? Weber is sending me a replacement table for FREE! Incredible customer service. I'll have it later this week, gotta go get the rest of it cleaned up and ready. Enjoy your Sunday Brethren!
