Looks incredible.  We have a similar set up... 26er with craycort grill grates.  I have the SnS XL for mine also.

Any particular reason all these projects use the Gen 2 Performer rather than Gen 3 or Gen 4?

Just my personal opinion.
I think the Gen II black frame and the stainless steel panel look better than the grey on the newer generations.
I have owned 4 Gen II and 0 Gen III or IV.

Agree with Kneab.  I have also owned a Gen IV and I painted it black before I put it together.  The Gen 2 became available on Craigslist and thatís when the project really took off.  Luck of the draw but I am glad for the Gen 2.  And Weber - please change the Gen IV wheels 😭

Great write up and lots of good info for some things Iím thinking about.  A sort of silly question, but I noticed you have some sort of sleeve on your propane canister.  Any info on that?  Iíve poked around on Amazon and the interwebs and canít seem to find anything obvious.

Thanks @Chesapeake Weber... good eye - yes that is a 1 pound propane sleeve made out of Neoprene.  Necessary?  Totally not.  I also use the 1 pound propane canisters for a weed torch that I use out in my rock mulch in the front yard, and I noticed that when I run that torch for a while it begins to frost up.  Somewhere through some useless googling I found those neoprene covers.  The specific one that I purchased was a "Northland Tackle Propane Tank Warmer".  There's some odd ball websites that sill have it listed if you google it, but I don't think it is produced anymore.  I picked that one because it didn't have any weird logos or graphics on it.  Amazon has one with a pink "Jiffy" logo (search "Jiffy 4391 Propane Tank Sleeve") and there's another one on websites (eBay, etc) that says "Trophy Angler" on it that I've seen.
