Weber 386002 Q 100 Portable Propane Gas Grill Reviews
The Weber 386002 Q 100 Portable Propane Gas Grill is not a substitute for a large backyard grill. It is a small gas grill designed to be convenient and portable. The vast majority of reviewers absolutely love this little power house of a grill. The portability is a huge plus, but that is not all there is to love about this small propane grill.
Users really like how well this little grill cooks. It gets plenty hot enough to sear and grill rib eye steak. So cooking hotdogs, burgers, and other typical camping and tailgating fare are easy. Many grills have trouble staying lit in a stiff wind, but numerous reviewers of the Q 100 indicated that their grills did not have this problem.
The number of negative reviews for this grill is remarkably small. Most of them are from people who tried to get their small grill to do the job of a full sized one. That is not what the Q 100 is for. A couple of reviewers had the same complaint about a faulty regulator. Due to the overwhelming number of positive reviews, these seem to be isolated cases of faulty parts. There is also some disagreement about whether a 16.4 ounce gas cylinder will fit the grill. Some reviewers said not. But, Weber and the vast majority of positive reviews say that it fits just fine.
There are some hints to be found in the positive reviews to make this grill more enjoyable. Lining the inside of the grill with foil makes it much easier to keep clean. One user fashioned a tray that he was able to use for mesquite wood chips for a great smoky flavor.
Over ninety percent of reviewers give this grill their highest rating. It is hard to imagine a grill being more highly recommended than this one. Although there are a very small number of naysayers, this grill is extremely highly recommended by customers. Before you purchase the Q100, understand that it is not designed for large backyard barbecues or family reunions. It is a small portable grill for camping, tailgating, or small family dinners. Ask it to do too much and you might be disappointed.
