    It sounds like you picked the right burner, excellent job across the board.

    how much to build me one!! one possible suggestion, is to maybe add a propane splicer and funnel the big propane tank into the touch-n-go to get rid of the small disposable tanks. Might be a pain to open the valve on the big propane tank each time since it's in the back though.

    Wow! That is really impressive! I would replace my 22.5" performer with one of those for sure. I really like the heavy duty side burner.

    That's pretty fantastic.

    I made a few prototypes of these at Weber, they thought they were just HUGE!

    I took a pair of performer tables, sliced them to make it wide enough for the 26. Extended the regular length cross braces to be wide enough, same with the cart grate... I wonder what they ever did with that beast?

    Thank you! That's quite a compliment. Yeah... it's huge & I love it.

    Just added a Cajun Bandit rotisserie ring. It's even bigger now.

    You are most welcome.

    Cajun makes some quality stuff. There's nothing better than sitting down to pursue your past-time be it cooking, music, woodworking, you name it.. and having the RIGHT tool and quality.

    You'll enjoy using that custom performer for years..

    Neat chimney rest, too, Robert.

    You and your 26" grill need to go on tour around the country.

    I really love seeing the care you took on this build! That is just so cool!
    I just spent three hours scrubbing the seasons charcoal dust off the cypress table on my "double barreled" performer. Three coats of tung oil and it looks pretty nice again. I've seen cypress "grey out" in the sun but, this was just schmutz! I was kind of grossed out really, I need to swab the decks more often!
