I'm going to wait around for the even bigger Ranch kettle Performer with an 8 ft. granite countertop, dual side burners, flip up rotisserie,  factory installed a/c for bbqing on those hot summer days and  that little cabinet underneath is a refrigerator for my beer.
This is the original Weber kettle. The most powerful bbq grill in the world and can blow your taste-buds clean off! So, you have to ask yourself one question: "Do you feel hungry? Well, do you punk?"

Here's an idea: Maybe Weber could design this new Performer with a hole in the middle of the countertop where a patio table umbrella could be inserted in the hole so that you could open the umbrella and cook in the shade or stay dry in the rain?

The umbrella could be an optional accessory that you would have to buy separately if you wanted it? If you didn't want the umbrella, they could have a metal plug that fits over the hole?

An umbrella over a bbq?  Some idiot would burn the neighborhood down..

A 26 perfomer would be very desirable at the right price. The market is limited..

How come no one here has built one? Oh Shaun.. Hey Shaun...

I actually was going to make a really nice table to fit a 26'r, but never got around to it. I love the 26'rs, new and old.

An inlaw has an old 26" daisy vent kettle mounted in a redwood table, its more of a surround as the legs are still attached. I'll try to dig up a pic of it, he did a great job on it and it was handed down to him from his dad.  Lots of space makes it nice to work on.

I cooked an event sponsored by a  hardware store and Weber reps were there, I had a drum with a kettle lid, a Cajun Bandit with the EZ-Que ring and a Rib-O-Lator, an 18" WSM and a Mini Smoker Joe and these guys had absolutely no clue about any of the aftermarket items for their products. They took pics of my collection and another cooks Mini's and admitted to us that their focus was Gas Grills and made a comment "wait until the attorneys see these!". They did bring around some serious goddie bags though.

A high end charcoal grill from Weber? I dunno.
I cook on: Backwoods Gater, Lang 36, Hunsaker Smokers, Pellet Pro 22" WSM, BGE's, WSM's, Cajun Bandits, PK Grills, Drum Smokers, Genesis Silver C, Weber Q's, Cookshack 008, Little Chief, La Caja China #2, Lodge Sportsman...oh yeah! Weber Kettles! Kamado restoration and pit modification hack!

If this is real, I'm guessing it'd be $600. But having said that, i might still have to invest in one!

 I would like to see that 26 with table.  I guess the attorneys didn't think much of it since aftermarket parts are still being stamped out. BTW Brian, your facebook page is awesome! I'm getting one of those brining buckets for Thanksgiving.

Where is this online survey? While the 26" performer is cool, Weber doesn't do leaks or surveys like this. Even when the 22" wsm came out. Nice grill though for alot of $$$.

This apparently was emailed out to select Weber fans. Not sure how we get on that list, but it should be a given that we SHOULD be that list ;)
