In my world I just need it to put out enough heat that one can cook a good steak on it and for that not to take for ever.



With luck you or (anyone else) will have a bit of real world input into this



Thanks

Doug, I've had my Weber Q for a couple years now and I love it. That said, there are some short comings with regard to heat output vs. say, charcoal or a full size gas grill. But it does a better job than any other gas portable I've used.

I'm a perfectionist when it comes to bbqing, grilling and smoking. My first choice is always to cook over wood... There's nothing more fun or tasty. Second is lump or charcoal and last is gas. But for quick easy and convenient I don't think you can beat the weber q. I would like more btu's for searing steaks, but the Q does an adequate job and is very good for burgers, chicken, fish, and dogs.

We hook ours up to a 5 gallon propane tank along with outdoor stove and lantern and that works great. We've used the small bottles also and no difference.

One last thing about weber in general is that they have great customer service. I had an issue with the auxiliary hose for my 5 gal. Tank and they replaced it without issue and offered me a accessory from there Q accessory list free of charge, just for the inconvenience.... That's pretty awesome. My advice is buy it - you'll like it.

Just got my babyQ1000 in the mail today....looks nice....will be trying it out I think this weekend for our local camping trip

Also ordered the book “The Next Exit”....some folks on here had recommended to me in the past as I was talking about finding gas stations suitable for easy access with my rig. Looks like a great book to have as a reference...I think it tells you much more about each exit....not sure if it mentions dump stations...

My pleasure Doug. It's always nice to shed a little light on a good product. If you buy one say from lowes and don't like it, they certainly will take it back. I would recommend the accessory hose for use with big tanks. I don't know if you like grilled veggies but, the Q does a nice job w those too. If you get one let us know what you think?

I was considering a griddle for mine. Do you take the grill off to put the griddle on? And will it fry bacon as well? Thanks

Great thanks Mark - I'm heading to Seattle tomorrow and will be in the States all next week. So I'll get my but over to Lowes and see what they have... Do you know if the optional hose will allow me to hook into my main tanks on the AS?

Thanks and Happy Easter by the way!

Cheers
Doug

Doug, yes it will is the short answer. However, the one that weber makes is only about 6' long so that may require finding a longer hose ext. which if Lowes doesn't have, walmart or a camping supply will. You'll of course have t o disconnect you trailer line or I the future you could add an adapter w/ shutoff to make things simple. If you use other propane items outside (stove or lantern) then an auxiliary tank w/an option "tree" for hooking up the additional items is the way to go. They make 2gallon propane tanks as we'll. I used that size when I use to take guests out on pack horse trips. Good luck and let's hear from you.
