So my conclusion is this- If you want the best and BBQ often then these lifetime charcoal baskets are a no-brainer.  If all you do is throw burgers on the grill occasionally you probably don’t even know what the charcoal baskets are for in which case the stock baskets would work out just fine.  Seeing as the charcoal baskets are such a large part of my BBQ routine these were at the very top of my BBQ wish list.  there are many BBQ accessories that are frivolous and end up being used once and then stuck in a drawer.  these get used about 85% of the time I fire up teh kettle.  no-Brainer purchase!

The Latest… A DR Code Green 2nd Generation @WeberGrills Performer

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)

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.
