I'll second this choice. Been using this for the last 4 years, cooks great,

looks great............It's silver!!!!!!

We had a home model and it was the best gas grill I have ever had or seen. It is absolutely impossible to burn anything. All my friends allways wanted to come to our house because evrything that came off the Holland was awesome to taste. I had it hooked up to the house's nat. gas and when we sold the house the new owners wanted the grill, they put it in the contract. We have a weber smokey joe but I might just have to buy that Holland portable model(didn't know they had one). Thanks.

Jim Clark recommended a Magna stainless steel portable grill and I love it. It was pricey, but it is made for the yachting industry and seems extremely well built. Should last the rest of my life time!

We have the Weber Baby Q and I love the convenience of gas with the 1# propane bottles that we stow in the Classics empty battery box. I am thinking of gettting a griddle for it for pancakes and sausage or bacon. With any of the grills, lining them with heavy duty or doubled aluminum foil makes clean-up a breeze. For charcoal flavor the Weber Go Anywhere charcoal grill has always been large enough for the two of us and can make a couple of great cornish hens.

Saw this shirt in the window of a shop.

I like my Weber BabyQ, I have tried several grills and this one works great for us. And yes, Dutch Oven cooking is a great way to go, we have been doing it for a year and really kike it.

We use a George forman grill and they are well worth the money and you get to stare at all the fat that drains out lol! we have since stopped eating red meat after looking at the lard contents (don,t gross out) but it's true, the white stuff is the stuff that sticks inside your arteries and the doctor has to use a tiny airstream shaped thing to scrape it out if needed. We also have a stainless cylinder like grill that closes like a roll-top desk, it was given to us by a trucker and it runs on the small propane jars...for heat instead of the central unit, we use a 'Mr. Heater unti with a twenty foot hose that really keeps everybody warm...it's not funny but one time somebody turned the oven on for heat and the pilot went out at the same time...aside from everybody being dizzy, I don't know how we survived that one, I promise it will never happen again!

I have been recently experiencing a problem with my Solaire grill. I have been having trouble keeping it lit on the low setting. Wind has not been a factor the stove just keeps going out as if it's starved for fuel. I contacted the factory and the said they are shipping a new regulator. I will post an update as soon as possible. The stove is essentially unusable except on the highest setting. I am a little bit dissapointed at this time.

Thumbs up Weber Q-100 ("Baby-Q")

Well, I have to add my $.02, and nominate the Weber Q-100 as the best all-around portable gas grill. Up until now, we had lots of good results with the "Patio Classic", a self-starting "chimney effect" charcoal grill. It's still a good back-up, but pretty small cooking area. We opted to try a gas grill.
After doing some internet research, and noticing that about 95% of the web reviews were in the 5-star range, we bought the Weber Q-100. It arrived yesterday, and took no more than 10 minutes to unpack, assemble handle/cotter pins, and attach 16.4 oz propane cartridge (the wire support that made it difficult to use the larger propane cartridges wasn't present, I guess in response to the universal complaints about it getting in the way).
The grill is porcelain-coated cast-iron, so no seasoning necessary! But I did season some chicken thighs, threw them on the pre-heated grill, and 10 min later, they were superb. The grill leaves markings of a professional grilling setup! The Q100 is definitely a keeper; of course if you have specialized BBQ needs, like beercan chicken, you'll need a larger grill, but this is a great choice for the rest of us!

We used our new Weber Q-100 (Baby-Q) for the first time at the CanOpener Rally. It did well with hot dogs and pork chops. It is easy to set up and not too heavy or big for traveling.

We will be looking for something to store it in for travel but for now the box it came in works fine to hold the grill and needed accessories.

I know this is not a typical- camping grill but its cool! Target sells a George Foreman College Tailgating grill. It has a removable griddle for pancakes and is non stick, and folds into the best little case. Also uses a small propane cylinder- like for a lantern. We got it a year ago- but its great!

We have camped for years, so we already have "stuff" for outdoor cooking, most of it pretty vintage by now. We use a Coleman stove, and have a hibachi also, so don't plan on buying anything new. That is...unless my husband the gadget guy gets to looking at Bass Pro the next time we are there......I do try to keep him out of there but that plan isn't working too well......

I have a couple of nice gas grills, but I still swear by my Weber grills. I have a big one at home and a small one for camping. Nothing tastes better than good ole' red meat cooked over charcoal.

We haven't looked into it. We have only gotten to use it twice. It's worked wonderfully. It is being stored in its box in the back of the truck. When the box gets beat up I am sure we will be shopping around for other alternatives. Thanks for the recommendation. We will check it out when the time comes.

We have a Weber Baby Q and have been using it at home off of a 20lb propane cylinder. When we take to the road this summer the grill will be with us but I don't want to take the 20 lb tank nor do I want to hook up to the big tanks on the trailer.

Several people here have indicated using a 16oz disposable. Does anyone have any indication of how long one of these cylinders lasts?

You should consider replacing one of your regulator outlets with a "Y" or "Tee" that allows you to add another propane hose to your existing bottle, that way you wouldn't have to haul another bottle out when camping and could just hook your Weber up to your trailer and burn some meat..

I found this in a ad when I did a search for the baby Q on Google Hope this helps.....SAM


A disposable 14.1-oz. propane cylinder (not included) lasts up to 1.5 hours.
