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.




burgers & brats

Looks like a good cook Pappy. I bought some leather shoelaces and made hangers for the tools. I'll be watching for the paper towel mod, I'd like one too.
