  • Includes the Gourmet BBQ System hinged cooking grate
  • Touch-N-Go gas ignition system lights the charcoal with ease
  • Weather-proof Char-Basket container allows you to store charcoal with the grill
  • Patented One-Touch cleaning system with high capacity ash catcher makes clean-up easy
  • Includes a convenient work table with tool hooks and a bottom shelf

Weber combines the best of their iconic charcoal grills with innovative, convenient features in the Performer Grill Series. Made of premium-grade U. S. Steel coated with black porcelain enamel inside and out, the bowl and lid of the Weber 22 inch charcoal kettle grill are precisely formed to allow heat to circulate evenly inside the grill and across the 363 square inches of cooking area. Porcelain enamel coating will not rust or peel, giving your grill years of top performance. The aluminized steel One-Touch cleaning system makes clean-up hassle free. As you rotate the handle, three blades in the bowl move ash through the vents and down into the removable, high-capacity aluminum ash catcher below, which is enclosed to prevent ashes from blowing away and creating a mess. The Touch-N-Go gas ignition system makes charcoal grilling a breeze by lighting the briquettes at the touch of a button using a disposable 14. 1 or 16. 4 ounce propane cylinder (not included). The adjustable, no-rust aluminum top vent provides the proper airflow needed for perfect grilling and, along with the built-in thermometer, allows you to control the temperature inside the grill. Weber Performer grills also feature hinged plated steel cooking grates, for easily adding more charcoal while grilling, a glass-reinforced nylon handle that will withstand the elements for the life of the grill, and a Tuck-Away lid holder that conveniently allows you to store the lid while you grill. The heavy-duty steel cart frame ensures the grill is sturdy and stable, while two crackproof all-weather wheels and two locking casters make moving the grill easy. The cart also has a thermoset work table that adds workspace, three tool hooks, a charcoal storage bin and a wire bottom shelf for storing grilling tools. Includes 2 Char-Basket fuel holders and a Weber cookbook. The Weber Performer Deluxe charcoal grill is where fun meets functional for your backyard BBQ!

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
