Performers are not flight-worthy

by zydecopaws on April 14, 2010

It gets windy at the lake. Pigdog normally keeps his Weber Performer on his deck with a tarp over it. Sometime in the past two weeks, the tarp turned into a sail and the Performer did its best impression of the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk. Needless to say, the landing was a bit rough.


I’m pretty sure the Weber warranty doesn’t cover grills used as hang gliders. But it didn’t stop us from putting it back together, cleaning it up a bit, and running our own version of a test flight on it. With ribeye steaks and monster baked potatoes.


That brown thing in the corner of the picture was the leading edge of one of those monster taters. These things were on the grill for an hour and a half at 375°F and still were just barely done when it came time to eat. On the other hand, the ribeyes cooked in a normal amount of time with nothing other than a bit of pepper, garlic, and Cajun seasoning mix.


And no, those weren’t small plates designed to fool the diner into thinking they were getting a lot of food. That was a lot of food.

Now if I can just make it to the couch…
