Until now. I have always cooked on cheap Brinkmans or CharBroils. Tonight makes the 2nd time I have cooked on my Weber Performer. My other grills leaked so bad that I never knew what it was like to do a high-heat cook or do the indirect cooking method. Well I have done both and am truly amazed at the versatility of this grill. I made some wings tonight and they were the best I've ever done. I cooked them indirect with some pecan for a couple of hours. Then, I moved them directly over the coals and finished them off. They were outstanding. Sorry, no pron. We were too hungry to think about pics.

I agree with the statement on Weber's quality! Sounds like the first couple of many.

I'm learning a lot about grilling since I got my Weber also. I love hearing other people say the same things I have been thinking when it comes to the versatility of this grill. I bought the OTG this summer but I really want a Performer.

I cook indirectly almost exclusively. Whether on one of my kettles or the old Char-Broil 450.
Gives me more time to sit and drink beer!

A Weber kettle is probably the best pit made for the dollar. I use mine mostly for steaks, burgers, and chicken, but you can do just about anything you want to on one. You can't hardly wear one out either. They are very durable.

We all seem to be saying the same thing!

I sure do like my weber grills! Indirect chicken can't be beat!

Eric,
As an official Weber Grill Decency Agent it is my duty to remind you that "Friends don't let friends buy crappy grills."
Congratulations on your Weber.
There are many more Weber grills out there, neglected and unappreciated by their owners.
Find them.
Adopt them.
Love them.

Once you get a Weber, you'll always have a Weber. Take care of it, it'll last a life time. Congrats!

Did anyone pick up one of thw WSM 18.5's from Home Depot for $41? I was listening to BBQ Central Radio last night as I was out of town during the live broadcast and heard Rempe mention HD was selling the stocked 18.5's WSMs for $41. I was on the way home and did an immediate detour to the HD. Unfortunately, they didn't have any and the lady I spoke to didn't even know what they were. I hope some of the Brethren got to take advantage of that!

Yes some people on here did score, but it was hit or miss at most HD's. Alot of HD's don't even stock them.

You just can't beat a Performer for an all around grill/smoker
