Cool Weber Q1000 Portable Gas Grill Experiences Please

I have a Charbroil Deluxe Portable Grill that I have used for camping/RVing over the last 25 years. I still works but is sensitive to windy conditions which often blow the flame out.
I am considering upgrading to a Weber Q1000 portable grill. Like all things Weber, it is a bit pricey but the reviews on Amazon are good.
If you have a Weber Q1000, your positive or negative comments are appreciated.

I have a Q as well, bought when we bought our first coach in 2016. Very happy with it, cleans easy and cooks very evenly. We are a family of 4 and the size has worked well for feeding us and friends when needed. Id definitely buy another if needed.

Great little grill. Only one burner and it tends to run HOT, Hard to cook at cooler temps.

Weber Q1000 Portable Gas Grill Experiences Please

I have the Q1200 for 6 years now. Had to replace the electric igniter after about 4 years.but they sell all the parts online so it was easy to replace myself.

Works great. Only upgrade I was considering was getting the porcelain coated grill to make it easier to clean than the stock cast iron one mine came with in 2014.

Edit: I see that the new ones come with the porcelain coated grill !

Best grill ever! We've been using a Q1200 since 2008!

The Q1200 is the Q1000 with the addition of the "folding side tables."

Completely agree with the previous comments. Easy to clean, dependable.

We use it daily when camping and almost every week when at home. We bought it for camping and ended up getting rid of our previous home grill because the Q is so much better. When we're not traveling, it's parked on a rolling cart with a 20# propane bottle and becomes our home grill. On the road we use the 1# bottles.

A few years ago I replaced the burner tube and grill grates to just to extend its life another decade or so.

Prior to finding the Q, we tried a $300 stainless marine grill. Grease dripped from the corners and it was such a pain to clean that we returned it. The Q's "bowl" shape makes it super easy to clean. About once a year we use a plastic putty knife or spatula and scrape the inside clean. After that, a little soap and water.

To be fair, there is one "issue" we have on occasion. The burner tube can get gunked up with all that dripping goodness. Eventually the burner tube holes get a little clogged and it's a bit sluggish to light (but still always lights). Rather than letting it get to that point at some inopportune time, I now clean the tube each year when I'm cleaning the rest of the grill. I simply take the grill brush directly to the burner tube to get the burnt goodness off. After that, if there are still any clogged holes, a standard bulletin board push-pin is the perfect size to poke in each clogged hole. After this little treatment, it lights right up like it was new out of the box.

During use, we use the disposable drip trays. For a time we tried using a rectangular Pyrex glass dish that perfectly fit the tray. But after dumping and washing that dish a few times I decided I'm willing to fork over a few bucks for the disposable pans.

Love this grill. If anything ever happens to it, I'll definitely get another!

I have the predecessor, Q100. Purchased in either 2012 or 2013. It has been all over the country and used regularly. We rarely cook inside. Would highly recommend to anyone. I did add the folding side tables. Wish I had all the money spent on food that has been cooked on it.

We bought the Q1200 in January this year. Have used it every day that weve been at a park. It is definitely wind proof. I grilled some hamburger in a very high wind (gusts to 40+), and the flames never flickered, even with the lid up.
The only issue Ive had is the height with the lid. Its too tall for the hatch opening on the side of the rig, so I have to store it with the lid removed. I bought two spring-latched clevis pins so I can pop the lid off easily.
The porcelain grates are excellent. Theyre not much bigger than a dinner plate, so if they get really nasty, Ill simply haul them into the house for trip through the dishwasher. Weber has griddle plates the same size as the grates; those are on my Xmas list.
This is my fourth Weber grill, after two kettles and the current Genesis II on the back patio, so I guess that makes me a fanboy.

Bought a Weber Q1000, an extend a stay for the propane and the Weber cart this spring. It works great, food tastes great, easy to clean up (line it with foil).
I would highly recommend the purchase.

Get past the price and enjoy some good food. You will not regret it.

You won't go wrong with a Weber Q grill. Like one posted said, it does grill hotter than most, I consider this a plus. Parts are easy to find and I too replaced the igniter.

I use a grill mat that keeps the grill and grates clean.

Another vote for the Q1000. We've had one well over 10 years. As mentioned it works well and is easy to clean. Ours didn't originally come with the side tables. They're a great addition.

Rather than use the small disposable propane bottles we use a 10 lb. refillable cylinder with a 6' hose. It gets refilled about once a year.

We replaced our Coleman Roadtrip with the Weber 1200 a few years ago and have been much happier with it than the previous grill. It's smaller, but plenty big enough for our needs. Want to buy a barely used Coleman Roadtrip?

I purchased a Q2200 when they first hit the market with the optional cart..grill cover & the cool rollaway/storage duffle bag that even stores the fold down cart in it. It's still cooking flawlessly. I did replace the original grill with a the upgraded porcelain one. The manual igniter still works like new too.
