Great for Searing
I got my Weber performer 8 years ago for fathers day and it is awesome. When I first saw the Char-baskets it made sense the purpose was for indirect cooking and positioned under the flip up portion of the 22" grill is a perfect combo. Using the Char-Basket for searing came into play during a BYOMeat Qing party and a Chard-Rare request on a 3/4" prime NewYork steaks . Humm no problem, It's gotta be a hot fire and close to the grill. pulling the 2 togetherChar-Baskets heaping with charcoal put the 700 degree superheat within 1-1/2" of the grill. The New York prime steak came off perfect and the couple couldn't believe the flavor and appreciated the Weber Performer's versatility they bought their own Weber Performer that following weekend. Great times, Cheers
