If you’re interested in buying a grill but you’ve never owned one before, the first question that comes to mind is what kind should I get? The answer is simple…the one that best suits your personal preferences. The three main types of grills, charcoal, gas and electric, result in grilled foods that taste a certain way. Some die-hard grillers claim that nothing has flavor, flavor and more flavor than a burger or a steak cooked on a charcoal grill. If you are inclined to feel the same way, perhaps the Weber Performer Series Charcoal Grill is the perfect grill for you.
Charcoal grills are typically easy to find, light weight and very versatile – you can cook most any type of outdoor grilled foods in different temperature ranges, from low smoking to high searing heat. But the biggest strike against a charcoal grill is its slow start time; the coals need to heat up to a certain temperature before you can even start cooking. The Weber Performer Series Charcoal Grill gives you the best of both worlds with its gas ignition system and lid-mounted thermometer.
While some types of charcoal grills are limited to two or three features, this one has plenty to brag about including a no-rust ash-catcher, two char-basket charcoal fuel holders and a weather protected charcoal bin. While there are many great things to be said about gas grills in general, you can’t beat the cost, portability and style of the Weber Performer Series Charcoal Grill.
