With the push of a button, the coals are lit, and the essence of BBQ fills the air. The Weber Performer Deluxe Charcoal Grill performs from beginning to end. The CharBin storage container is a convenient way to store charcoal so that it’s by the grill, where and when you need it. The metal work surface provides a great work area and covers the CharBin to keep briquets dry. The water-resistant digital cook timer provides countup and countdown features in hours, minutes, and seconds. The electronic Touch-N-Go LP gas ignition system allows you to ignite charcoal with the push of a button. The porcelain-enameled lid and bowl retain heat for consistent temperature and even cooking. The finish also prevents rusting, cracking, and peeling while withstanding high grilling temperatures. The built-in lid thermometer displays the internal temperature of your grill so that you know when to adjust the heat. The rust-resistant aluminum damper allows for precision heat control. Closing the damper completely will cut off oxygen flow and will eventually extinguish the coals. The Tuck-Away Lid Holder allows you to conveniently slide the lid over to the side of the grill, and tuck it away, to avoid placing it on the ground while grilling. Made of heavy-duty steel, the cooking grate provides ample area to make all of your favorite meals, and it is hinged to make it easy to add charcoal while grilling. The cooking grate is equipped with a special center area that is removable, and designed to allow you to easily add special Weber BBQ System Cooking Inserts, such as a sear grate, poultry roaster, or pizza stone (each sold separately). The One-Touch cleaning system provides hassle-free cleanup of charcoal ash and debris by sweeping it into a high-capacity, removable ash catcher. Light the coals with the Touch-N-Go gas ignition, prep food on the large work table, and know that cleanup will be easy with the One-Touch cleaning system. All that’s left is to sit back and enjoy the performance.
