I bought a Baby Q probably 6 or 7 years ago. Use it at home and in the MH probably 2-4 times a week. Perfect size for family of 3. Had to replace the regulator a couple years ago but burner is still in good shape. In the MH we use 1lb refillable bottles but at home we use regular size propane tanks.

We have a Q200 (maybe discontinued) and like it a lot. Fits in the basement along with the folding stand (which I think they have replaced with a less flimsy model). Favorite accessory is a Lodge griddle we use mostly for breakfast. Wish it had a bit more heat output, our largest Webber gas grill at home heats that griddle up much faster and hotter, but it's not a big deal.

I think they make a great product and even though there are only 3 of us most of the time, I prefer the larger model.

Everyone has different needs. We have the Q-100 which is plenty big for a family of four. If you plan to entertain more, you might want the Q-200. The accessories depend on what type of camping you do. Many years ago when we bought the Weber, we were camping with our kids for two weeks at time, at one campground while boating. We had the stand, set up the BBQ for two weeks with the larger tank and used it every couple of days.

Now that it's just the two of us, we rarely use the BBQ. When we do, I just set it on a table, cook and then put it away. Sooooo...... you need to decide how you'll use it to determine size and accessories.

I also like to use my Lodge griddle and with the higher BTU's of the 2200 then I think I will go with it. The 1200 would be okay but maybe not enough btu's for a griddle. Will pass on the cart since most places have a table.

Thanks everyone for your input.

The weber q120 is rated for 8500btu. At 11" of water column (gas regulated pressure) that means the orifice size was made using drill size 65. I increased mine to about 10000btu... Heats up much faster and now I can sear a steak on a windy day.

You'll need a numbered drill bit set, also called an orifice drill bit set.

Marcham ... where is the grill's orifice located? Like you - I removed the regulator on my Q2200 and installed a quick connect so that I can use the coach's low pressure propane tank. I think that the only orifice in gas flow is the hole that in the "3/8" Flare to 1/4" FIP Brass Fitting" I need to step down to the 1/4" threaded connection that was left after I removed the regulator.

Or are you talking about drilling out the holes in the burner ring itself?

Thanks!

Don't drill the burner tube! Remove the burner tube, you'll see the brass orifice.

Bought a Q220 (very similar to the new 2200 model) a few years ago. Wouldn't go any smaller. I bring a five gallon propane tank cos it's impractical to hook it to the 45 gallon MoHo tank. Had a problem and Weber overnighted a new regulator at no cost. I'd recommend it to anyone.

We have had a Q220 for about 4 years. I have nothing bad to say about this BBQ. I keep it clean and use the small 1 lb gas containers.

Coupl e things, you don't have to remove the regulator on the grill, just make sure your T is in line before the regulator on your coach. I also purchased the weber griddle that fits my model perfectly, not sure how the lodge model fits. Also, weber changed the grill slightly about 3 years ago. I believe the models use to be 1100 and 2200 or something like that now they are 100 and 200 anyway the older ones had cast iron grates and the new ones have lighter weight porcelain covered grates. On other grills, I've had the porcelain and they didn't seem to hold up as well. Just an observation. One final note, on our baby Q, weber made a bbq fork and spatula set that actually clipped in under one of the bars on the gold out side tables. Very handy for storage and I don't have to go searching for them. Haven't seen them recently but would be worth looking for.

I have a quick connect fitting under our 5th wheel for low pressure propane, and I want to be able to remove the regulator in order to use this connection. Is the regulator/flow control assembly all one piece or can the regulator be removed?

BTW, I believe Q100 and Q200 are older models. Q1000, Q1200 and Q2200 are the latest.

The regulator can be unscrewed from the gas control valve.
