The Weber® Performer™ Deluxe Gourmet with GBS™ 57cm is Weber®'s top notch charcoal barbecue taking all the functional and easy to use features of the Weber® Master-Touch™ 57cm and embedding them in an easy to move around cart with a large painted metal work surface which includes a gas ignition system to speed up lighting up the coals, a removable LCD cooking timer and a multi functional weather-proof Char-Bin™.
The Weber® Performer™ Deluxe Gourmet with GBS™ 57cm takes Weber®'s ongoing evolution of their kettle barbecues, with it's origins in the 1952 heritage kettle design, and uses their total familiarity with charcoal grilling blended with much customer feedback to create a charcoal barbecue that, while it's signature Weber® stylings may look very familiar, features the Gourmet BBQ System™ cooking grate, Tuck-Away™ lid holder, stainless steel One-Touch™ Cleaning System, and rust proof removable ash catcher to take the concept up to the next level for even more simplicity of use and grilling versatility.
The Weber® Performer™ Deluxe Gourmet with GBS™ 57 features the Gourmet BBQ System™ grate which can be used as a standard cooking grate or by easily removing the 30cm central section and replacing it with one of the interchangeable GBS™ accessories; wok, sear grate, griddle, pizza stone, dutch oven or poultry roaster, all of which are separately purchasable and can be bought individually, to greatly expand the range of the grilling, roasting, stir frying or baking options into areas that you would not always expect to be available with a charcoal barbecue.
There is a wide grilling area that can still to be used around the outer rim for grilling when the Gourmet BBQ System™ Grate accessories are being used as the total cooking grate area is 2552cm², giving lots of space for both direct and indirect grilling which is greatly aided by the two Char-Basket™ Fuel Holders which are included, which is more than adequate for a family or friends to enjoy a barbecue at home or wherever the adventures takes you.
The easy to use Tuck-Away™ lid holder makes an always available place to put the lid when it is not in use as the lid slides neatly into the Tuck-Away™ lid holder meaning that it will also function as a windshield and heat deflector when lighting the coals or moving food around on the grates.
