Weber 15501001 Performer Deluxe 22-Inch Charcoal Grill

Weber Performer Deluxe 22-Inch charcoal grill has 363 square inches of cooking area which is enough to cook for ~4 people (depends on what you are cooking).

You probably wonder how well it cooks and the answer is simply amazing! If you know what you are doing you will be fortunate enough to taste one of the best, if not the best tasting steaks you have ever had in your life.

It’s equipped with everything you need from built-in temperature gauge to air flow controller (which is very smooth and easy to adjust). When you close or open the grill lid no smoke comes out and neither does the ashes.


Weber grill are usually of good quality and Weber Performer Deluxe 22-Inch charcoal grill is not an exception. In fact it’s better made that the other Weber grills we have written in the past. It’s sturdy and feels like something that will last for a very long time.

There are really only 2 things to complain about. First, the handle can get a bit warm despite there being a heat deflector for it (but it doesn’t get so hot it would cause burns or any major discomfort). Second, lid holder screws can obstruct cooking grates when removing them making the process slightly more difficult (you might lose a few seconds of time which is not a huge issue but can be slightly annoying especially if you are in a bad mood).


Weber 15501001 Performer Deluxe is very mobile. It weighs 94 pounds however with the built-in wheels it’s super easy to push on hard surfaces and doesn’t require any effort to do so. It’s very stable.


Weber 15501001 charcoal grill is equipped with weather protected CharBin storage container. You can store charcoal there or use it for other purposes (like trash bin). The side table is very sturdy.

Other features include removable aluminum ash catcher (works really well and makes cleanup simple), tuck-away lid holder, 3 tool hooks and gourmet BBQ system hinged cooking grate with removable circular grate insert. Weber Performer Deluxe is also equipped with LCD cook timer. Not sure how useful it’s as everyone has a timer on their phones nowadays but you can’t really complain about having extra feature that some might find useful.


Weber Performer Deluxe 22-Inch is likely the best grill you will ever own. It’s well made, easy to use and produces delicious results!
