5 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

35% Bigger Cooking Surface Diameter

The Weber Performer Deluxe is a 545mm cooking surface diameter barbecue. That's 285mm bigger than the Barbecook Joya (260mm), 85mm bigger than the Big Green Egg Large (460mm) and 255mm bigger than the tepro Crystal Mini (290mm). More ...

The cooking surface diameter of a barbecue refers to how large the usable cooking surface on the BBQ is, measures in millimetres.

A larger surface area means there is more space to cook food on, meaning more food can be cooked at once.

Adjustable Thermostat

The Weber Performer Deluxe has an adjustable thermostat, whereas the Barbecook Joya, the Big Green Egg Large, the Cobb Pro and the tepro Crystal Mini do not. More ...

Some barbecues have an adjustable thermostat that can be altered, to change the heat up or down.

Different food cook best at different temperatures, so the ability to change the heat level of your BBQ means that you can always pick the best temperature for what you're cooking.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Weber Performer Deluxe features cool-touch handle, and so does the Big Green Egg Large, whereas the Barbecook Joya, the Cobb Pro and the tepro Crystal Mini do not. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.

Better Kagoo Score

The Weber Performer Deluxe has received a Kagoo Score of 81, but the Barbecook Joya scored 75, the Big Green Egg Large scored only 67, the Cobb Pro scored 78 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored 77.

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, however Barbecook only has an average rating of 62.6%, Big Green Egg only has an average rating of 74%, Cobb only has an average rating of 76.8% and tepro only has an average rating of 63.1%.

2 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

$70 More Expensive

The Weber Performer Deluxe is more expensive than the Cobb Pro by $25 and more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini by $70.

Two Months Older

The Weber Performer Deluxe is older than the Barbecook Joya by two months.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Performer Deluxe in the US is $149.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Cobb Pro

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Big Green Egg Large

Smoke Function

The Big Green Egg Large has a smoke function, but the Barbecook Joya, the Cobb Pro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Performer Deluxe do not have this feature. More ...

The denotes whether the BBQ has the ability to channel the smoke from the coals into (usually) a separate area, to allow for smoking foods rather than cooking them.

Smoking meat and fish, whether hot or cold smoking, normally requires specialist gear and a lot of work. Having a smoking function on your BBQ makes it far easier to create delicious hot-smoked salmon.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Big Green Egg Large features cool-touch handle, and so does the Weber Performer Deluxe, but the Barbecook Joya, the Cobb Pro and the tepro Crystal Mini do not. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Big Green Egg Large
