Same here, the one touch silver is $89 by me! I've been looking for a one touch gold or performer for some time. Everytime i find a deal on a performer someone has already snatched it up! lol

No question, get the performer. Then, if the silver is available, get it too. You can never have too many kettle's

Did you make a decision yet? If I was near by they would both be gone.

Haha, I wish I had your problem! There is rarely anything worth having here on craigslist, and even more rare that that there is a decent price for it. I finally scored me an awesome 18" kettle and I love it.

willing to sell it if anybody in my area is interested in it for $50, it's 22.5

I got a 22" OTS off CL for $20.... not buying that new one when a used one will do just fine.

my first cook i plan on doing is the alton brown grillus domesticus chicken...i might even break out the D-SLR for the occasion

Cold smoked some NY strips for an hour then finished them on the Weber, they were great!
I picked up one of these off Dallas CL yesterday, too... Asking $75, a great deal at $60. Haven't cooked on it yet, but filled the propane bottle tonight and fired up half a chimney, ya know, to "test it out" - looks like a new grate is in order, as this one is pretty rusted on one half and I can't seem to get it off. Other than that, works great - my vote is for the Performer...

Could you just burn wood in the kettle? Might takes a bit longer to get down to coals, but seems to me it would work okay...

My vote is for the newer 26"Weber. I just picked mine up yesterday NIB for $140! With a whopping one cook under my belt on it I say it is the best Weber I have ever used.
