I picked up a small Baby Q (Q 1200) for my mom. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you have an appreciation for the simplicity, reliability and functionality of Weber charcoal kettles, then the Q series Weber gassers are the grill for you.
Built like tanks, very few parts, easy to assemble, easy to maintain. Line it with foil to keep it pristine, spray the enameled grates with cooking spray and grill away.
I hooked it up for her and immediately noticed how quick the temps were climbing. So I shot a video in real time as a demonstration.

The Mrs wanted a gas grill to cook outdoors. After a search on Craigslist I picked up a Weber Q 200 that had great bones but needed a good amount of douching. A couple of hours or elbow grease, a rubber scraper and a scotch brite pad she was ready to cook on.
I can see why a Weber charcoal BBQ guy would like the Q series as a gas grill. They are very simple to put together, the parts are readily available (thank you Boots at Foster’s Grill Store), and they have some great features like the way the grate is designed to prevent flare-ups and grease drippings from clogging your burner tube.
I’d recommend a Weber Q over any Sears bought $100-$800 gas grill that will disintegrate in a year or two’s time.
Here’s a fantastic sandwich I made yesterday on the Weber Q 200 at the dock-
One Asiago Focaccini Roll
Sista Felicia’s Pesto
Buffalo Mozzarella Sliced
Five Sundried Tomatoes Chopped
# Slices of Parma Prosciutto Sliced Thin.
Drizzle a twirl of evoo on the nonstick pan and a couple of pads of butter.
Grill on medium/low heat to warm the pan. Layer ingredients on the roll and place on the pan for ten minutes or until golden brown, then flip on other side for another 5.
