Weber's Performer Grill and matching barbecue accessories from Crate & Barrel

May 11, 2010 |  8:45 am

Other than the occasional flame-red top, charcoal grills aren't all that colorful. Until now. In a bid to put a little more green in its cash drawers, Crate & Barrel cooked up a new color with the folks at Weber. 

Sold exclusively through Crate & Barrel, the made-in-the-U.S. kettle grill is colored to suit a variety of California patios. The shade of green sits somewhere between the tangy Palm Springs modern lime, Mediterranean olive and Mexican guacamole and is available on two models. The portable Smokey Joe has a 14.5-inch diameter and an entry level price of $49.95.

The 22-inch diameter Weber Green Performer Grill, above, is $329.95, and has a host of upgrades: a hinged grate, built-in thermometer, propane gas ignition to light the coals and a one-touch cleaning system. 

CrateIt sits in a steel cart with a lid holder, scorch resistant work surface, wire storage shelf and hooks for accessories. 

And yes, grill masters, there are color-coordinated utensils including tongs, a $14.95 extra-long suede barbecue mitt, right, and a $19.95 hamburger press that makes a pair of half-pounders, far right.
