Anyone using a Weber Q series grill ?

I am in the market (I think) for a smaller grill ... I have 2 weber kettles (22" &18")... I really like them , but , sometimes I just dont want to screw with them for a couple of burgers/brats or grilled veg ...

I have an indoor electric Cuisinart Griddler , but, that takes the "romance" out if grilling so to speak...

I have been looking at the Q's (1200 & 2200) , I am leaning towards the 2200...

But , I was hoping yo get some feedback from an actual user... like most things Weber , reviews online are all positive...

TIA

Dan

All I can say is that I love Weber grills, even though I have never actually owned one. I've used them, and they always seem to work perfectly. There's one up at my MIL's camp. It's older, doesn't have a lot of the new features, but this thing never fails to light and cooks the food perfectly.

I have the 310 Stainless with Natural Gas. Love it, yes the Q's are only 1 year on market but IMO get a Genesis 310, not all the frills but a damn god grill. Cheaper too

I'll never buy any other grill brand. Never recommend any other grill brand either. They cost more initially, but you'll buy many lesser models in it's place. Voice of experience on this one and I am not a very brand loyal customer.

Good advice. The Spirit series is good for less but I'd pop for the Genesis.

Check costco. They sell a 100% stainless grill - I've had for 4 years now and it's solid as anything I could ask for.

I did see that the last time I was at Costco. It seemed to be well made. Maybe check out the reviews on it?

The Despot has the 14" tabletop Weber for $30 everyday price. That's pretty hard to beat.
