I am considering a Weber Q-1000 LP grill. Friends rave about them. I've always been a charcoal cooker using a Cobb for the past 10 years.
Our 2012 has an LP outlet under the frame that is designed to hook a grill to and eliminate the need for the small just run it off of your 2-tank LP supply. Neat.
Anyone using this to fire a Q-1000? Reason I ask is that Weber Customer Service said it wouldn't work right. I don't like to hear "no" and am hoping someone is using this with great results.

Would imagine it has to do with the pressure from the trailer regulator not being correct for the grill but I could be wrong. Im sure others will chime in.

The only reason it might not work right is that your regulator reduces the line pressure to less that what is optimum for the BBQ. The 1 lb cans deliver gas at full pressure and the Q has a regulator to set the working pressure. When I plumbed my 69 Chevy van for gas I had to install a separate regulator to further reduce the working pressure for the fridge. The regulator for the Coleman stove was too high pressure.

See this video for explanation ....Coles notes:you need to remove the included regulator (on Weber) and install a coupler.

I've got a Q200 and Q120. My real choice is real wood but either of those Weber's does a darn fine job for a go to grill. They run off of full tank pressure but your tapline is after it goes thru the regulator, don't think it works that way, been reported here several times. I use an inline T from between the tank and hose to regulator connection that I run my remote hose to the grill with.

Looks like the video above my comments might offer a solution.

Many years ago I installed a "T" into the gas line under the belly with an isolation valve and female quick connect. Did just as the video shows and removed regulator from my Weber Baby Q, adding female QD to grill and male to regulator. Local propane dealer made me a hose with male ends (long enough to run under trailer so you can grill with your neighbor) to connect from trailer to grill. Now still have option to use regulator with 1# bottle or if you carry along a 20# bottle - lots of flexibility. On another note, when I did this I thought you couldn't double regulate, but someone had a similar setup with the trailer supply downstream of the regulator while using the grill regulator and guess what; he had the same flame hight.

Here is the source for the connection. Thanks to an earlier poster who directed me to this website. Works perfectly. Remove the portable tank regulator on the grill and replace with the quick connect kit.

The Weber is an awesome grill for the convenience. I am a long time charcoal guy and big green egg user. But the weber is unbeatable for a quick easy grill. Best for a quick hot grill like a steak. Falls short for low temperature slow cooking (or indirect cooking) but then again I have never seen a gas grill that is good for that. The secret of the little weber is the cast iron grates. The grill will preheat the grate to smoking hot and sears a steak or burgers beautifully. Another plus is the grate are two piece which makes it small enough to easily wash in the sink. Also works great as outdoor camp stove for fry pans, etc.

Weber Q Conversion Kit

Thanks to previous poster for the website.

Awesome grill for convenient quick cooking (steaks, burgers, hotdogs, etc). Not so good for slow or indirect cooking but In my opinion no gas grill is (that big green egg territory). Secret is the cast iron grates. Preheats to smoking hot and gives great seat. Another plus is grates are two piece so small enough to clean in sink. Also great as a camp stove. I substituted 10' hose so it is perfect for quick connect to front of Airstream and setting grill on tailgate of pickup.

Thanks for the information. Looks like the accessory LP Gas connection can be adapted to the Weber. AS put it there to use and I look forward to cooking with gas. And thanks for the link Cory_can. Directions even I can follow.
