Diffuser storage looks like a great place for a critter to take up residence.
Mike at Another Pint Please has a write-up about his involvement with the Summit Charcoal Grill. I thought those teaser photos looked like his work and they were. In one of his photos, you'll notice cooking grates hanging off the right end of the cart...neat.
So who besides Chris is getting one?
I was actually starting to think maybe......
but just before dozing off for my daily afternoon nap I started thinking pros and cons with what I already have.
Many of the nice features on the SCG, with table, I already have on my Performer.

As far as barbecuing ability, I have that with my WSMs.
Plus, I can barbecue and grill at the same time.
Bonus too for no learning curve with what I'm already accustomed to using.
So I'm good for now, but that could change if they design a new Performer around that 24" grate and price it decently.
Thanks for the link Chris - I've followed Mike for a while and he is fantastic. It looks like a fantastic creation. I'll be looking for a used model when the time is right.
she is Mrs. Wonderful!I showed the pics and videos to Mrs. TVWB this morning. She says, "You're going to have to get one, to see how it smokes compared to the WSM, right?"
God, I love my wife.
she is Mrs. Wonderful!
actually Chris, i think Weber should GIVE you one and critique it for them.
They know you.
They know the type of joint you run here. This site is as close to a Weber web site as it can possibly get without being run by Weber themselves.
They should ALREADY have one being delivered to your front porch TODAY!
Chris, Jim, & Bob, thanks! That video is by far my favorite!
Also, for comparison purposes, here is the SCG & the Performer side by side.
