Would you look at that marbling?
Oh yes baby, you’re coming home with me!
I obsessively check out the forums on http://www.weberkettleclub.com for inspiration and instruction on how to rescue, restore and respect Weber Kettles. If you’ve followed Good Morning Gloucester and NortheastBBQ over the past year you know the passion for BBQ has grown exponentially and it has a lot to do with the positive and encouraging members at http://www.weberkettleclub.com and also http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/index.php
Both are fountains of information on the Art of BBQ and the passion for Weber Kettles.
A special shout out to Weber Kettle Club member @sixzerofour for sending me these stickers, one of which will be adorning my pick up truck today! Thank you so much!
I tossed the cast iron grates from the STOK on the performer to grill these up. Worked out well.
Here’s the original post-
She started out dusty, faded blacks,rusty vents with a stained thermostatic plastic table-
She got a though rough detailing that you can follow in the link at top of this post.
So yesterday she looked like this-
Today the updated Performer table and stainless charcoal basket cord arrived.
The swap out took all of five minutes and the results are very pleasing. If I owned an older Performer it would be the first thing I’d do is order the newer style table.
The newer style metal table comes with bolts that are darker than the bolts that came on the original as you can see in the picture. I was torn deciding between keeping with the silver ones that were in great shape still or using the newer black ones that shipped with the metal table. In the end I decided to go with the darker ones, knowing that I could always swap them back f the black ones start to rust or something( I just need to not misplace them)
It was raining but I just couldn’t wait.
First to hook up the new charcoal basket cord while the table was still not bolted down. The cord that was on there previously had rusted clips. New style looks to be stainless so ask for I if you order the newer metal table.
Next to bolt it in, no drilling or modification necessary.
Before and after-
Loving it and highly recommend this upgrade.

Excited? Me Excited? 😉
What an honor. With the incredible amount of Weber fanatics all over the world to be named Weber Griller Of The Week, I’m pretty psyched.
Framing that card, damn right I am!
