Before and After-
Before and After-
Zero chance that a little snowstorm is gonna keep us from hitting the Weber Performer with some Atomic Buffalo Turds.
Rubbed Chuck roast with Worcestershire sauce and Trader Joe’s coffee and garlic rub.
Cut up red onion, orange and green bell peppers, garlic and added beef broth and more Worcestershire sauce to the tin that is laced under the Chuck on the grill.
Set up grill using snake method and have tray with veggies and beef broth under to collect drippings. Pit temp 265.
They don’t sell these in the States. They were sold in Iceland, Germany and Dubai in 2012 from what I can tell.
OMG I’m in love. The Official Weber model number is Weber One Touch Premium 1358204
Here’s the box and model number for the Wedgewood Smokey Joe-1128999

First wrapped the russet potatos in tin foil and tossed them right on the hot lump charcoal.
After 10 minutes flip the potatos on the other side and let them go for another 10. Once the potatos are done, unwrap them and put them to the side and put a little char on your core and seeded jalepenos.
Next cut a flat bottom off your baked potatos and then cut a criss-crossed section off the top which is the entry point for hollowing the potatos out.
Next insert your charred jalapenos into the hollowed out baked potato.
Stuff a stick of your favorite cheese in the jalapeno. You can use whatever cheese you like.
I chose cheddar sticks but you can use shredded too or even cream cheese.
then wrap with bacon starting with the bottom and stretching the bacon a bit to help it stick as you wrap. You can also use toothpicks to secure the bacon to the potato
When placing on the grill cook them offset the coals.
Here’s my daughter Eloise helping me make the Volcano sauce which consists of sour cream mixed with hot sauce and you can sprinkle in some cayenne pepper. You just keep adding and mixing til you get to the heat you want.
After 20 minutes offset turn the potatos on the grill so the side that was facing away from the coals now face the coals and slather on a bit of your favorite BBQ sauce.
Once they are crisped up take them off and dollop on the volcano sauce. Watch it drip down and the cut in and enjoy.
I saw variations on this recipe on YouTube-
She came to me in good physical shape. Solid frame, a few minor scrapes around the rim on the lid but in need of a deep cleaning.
Before and after.
Working gas- assist
So she’s in pretty good shape other than a ton of pollen and a dirty bowl. For the most part she simply needs a good douching.
Here’s how she looks at the start-
The bowl with some dishwashing liquid to loosen up the crud.-
Halfway cleaned with the razor blade scraper and a some super fine steel wool-
I’ll keep working the bowl, look for the updates today
Now to work the outside-
Need some Back to Black to brighten up the frame and wheels. When I first looked at the table it looked like it was badly stained but much of the dark marks that were visible wiped right off.
Chicken thighs/ smashed red bliss potatoes using the Upper Deck for increased offset cooking space.
Our buddy Anthony Caturano At Tonno took the second SS Performer. Immediately I had a empty pit in my stomach, without a Performer to cook on at the dock. Truth be told I really enjoy the restoration process and needed another project so I searched out another Performer looking for some love.
So this beautiful gem fell into my lap look at the bottom of this post:)
It’s a second generation Weber Performer. Each of the Generations of the Performers have things I like about them.
The classic lines on the first generation Stainless Steel ones, the only performers to use stainless steel. (Here’s the performer Anthony took)
The Black Frame on the second generation.(This is the first Performer I ever acquired)
The Wheels on the third Generation.
The Black Metal table on the fourth generation. (This is actually my 3rd gen with a 4th gen table.
And here is the latest- The DR Code Green, should clean up nicely. When the light comes I’ll test the gas assist to see if it’s working. With or without the gas assist I love the functionality of the attached table and bin on the Performers.
