    Default 1st Cook using New Performer

    Grilled some burgers & brats for the 1st cook on the new Weber Performer. Like the way it feels. Only problem so far is the tool hooks. They are so thick, none of my tools that I like to use fit over the jumbo plastic hook. I either need new tools or a skinnier hook. Maybe, a hook on a hook. I also wish it had a paper towel roll holder on it. These may be my 1st mods. I let the charcoal burn off slowly to see how long the 2 trays would last at 225. The pretend slow & low went good for about 4 hours. Starting to drop.

    Tie some leather thong into a loop through the holes in the tools and hang the hoop on the hook. A zip tie works well too, but doesn't look as good.

    How come? I thought they were pretty cool. It made it have zones of heat. Hot spot, not so hot spot.

    I use mine all the time on performer, look at some of my posts. Very convenient, and saves on charcoal.
    Just shake ash out on next cook, top off w/charcoal, place over burner-bam, Ready to cook in 10-15 min.
    Place 2 holders together in center for direct grillin', place holders at edges for indirect, etc., etc., etc.

    Pappy I gonna have pity on you and take you under my wing. If the tools don't fit the hooks that is a great reason to buy some new tools.

    Heres the skinny on the charcoal baskets; They look good on paper. Without them you can bank your coals to one or both sides and load in twice as much charcoal for increased burn times or build a banked 3 zone fire for direct cooking.
    Now those burgers and brats are looking choice but finished pix are my crack
    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!

    New tools! That did cross my mind a few times.

    Tasted good. It wasn't a nice looking supper. Just slap it on a plate and shove it down your neck. Had to be somewhere by 6:00

    I'll be taking some pics on the 4th. 40 lbs of pulled pork & 4 fatty's & brats & hotdogs for kiddy's.

    What ia a "banked 3 zone fire"?
