Default Have a BGE, lusting after Webber Performer

Hi All
First post here after lurking a while.
I have a Kamado Joe actually, and also have a Lodge Sportsman Hibachi which is great for quick searing kababs, burgers and such. I love them both.

But I can't get a Weber Performer out of my mind - a guy likes a little variety right? The KJ is my first experience with charcoal and like it appears with most of you, I'd like another toy in the arsenal.
Do any of you own a BGE type cooker but still mix a Weber kettle into use now and then?

My KJ:

Funny. I posted the desire for an UDS to go with my BGE at the same time!

I do not have a BGE but do have a Weber Performer. I love it. I do burgers and steaks to smoking ribs and turkeys. It is a great grill to own.

I have two eggs and two charcoal/gas hybrids. I still want a UDS, a Weber Performer and am lusting after a Yoder.

Come to think of it I wouldn't turn down a Traeger or a Lang and someday it might be fun to build a Wilber.

Don't try to understand it, just roll with it.

I've never owned a ceramic but have a couple of friends that use 'em in addition to Weber kettles. One has a Performer and the other guy cooks on a OTS a bunch, but wants a Performer. Mine was a steal for $180 from Home Depot in December, but I'd still like a Primo XL oval, though. My wife says I'm never satisfied.

Nomo4me, it looks like you live in SLC (I am in West Valley). I have a little performer fetish going and have bought 4 now over the last few years. I gave one to my brother for his birthday, one to a brother in law, and left one at my parents as well. I have one left that I bought new two years ago at Lowes and has been covered since. I am going to sell it this summer to fund a new 26.75 OTG. If you are interested in picking it up, send me a message.
