Weber Gas Grill Reviews - Taking A Brief Look at The Top 3 Weber Grills

Updated on April 21, 2011

Weber gas grills have been around for a long time and Weber grills are known for their even cooking and outstanding control. Whether you are an occasional or serious griller, their various grill models will provide you with the right equipment for barbecuing.  Grilled foods have a lot to do with the type and design of a gas grill and hence it is imperative the right kinds of grills are used to avoid disappointment during your family BBQ or outdoor grilling sessions.

Today we will look at a three top gas grills from Weber that deserves your attention before deciding on your next replacement.


Weber 386002 Q 100 Portable Propane Gas Grill

The first model here is one of their “Q” gas grill series that is made of a cast-aluminum body and lid with a glass-reinforced nylon frame. It has a 189 square-inch cooking area, an 8500 BTU stainless steel burner, adjustable burner valve, a drip pan, porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates and a push button ignition. It is not a very large portable propane gas grill but it certainly works its magic compared to the other bigger gas grills on the market.

This gas grill is not for grilling whole chicken but it would suffice to grill a couple of burgers. Of course grilling steaks won’t even be a problem for this model and it certainly is hot enough to grill a really juicy yummy steak for your family. What I really like about this grill is the heavy iron cast grate which cooks meat really quick and well. You would be impressed by the even heating and fuel efficiency even at 8500 BTU and you won’t need to wait long to start munching on your chicken breast. Another thing I really like is that it is light enough to make it portable for BBQ trips. Coupled with the fuel efficiency and even heating, this is a must consideration for those who don’t intend to spend too much on their first gas grill.

Weber 566002 Q 220 Gas Grill

Moving on to the Weber Q220. This Weber gas grill model goes a few steps higher than the previous Q100 in terms of features and size. It has an electronic ignition and a large 280 square-inch cooking area. It is also build with a glass-reinforced nylon frame, a cast aluminum lid and removable catch pain. In addition to that, this model comes with a 12000 BTU burner and there is also 2 work tables with built-in tool holders.

Obviously with the additional cooking area, this gas grill is able to handle a whole chicken and a couple more burgers. You can even try roasting a whole turkey. Personally, I’ve tried half a turkey and it grills really well. Once again, thanks to the iron cast grate this baby sears anything within a short period of time. Cooking steak is a real breeze and you won’t have to wait long before sinking your teeth into one. If you have a bigger family, this grill is right for you!

What I really like about this model is that the extra 2 side tables can hold your utensils and grilling tools. I don’t have to worry about placement and it is just more convenient to have things next to the cooking area.

Weber 586002 Q 320 Portable Outdoor Propane Gas Grill

This Weber Q320 model is probably Weber’s top of the range gas grill model and so don’t be surprised if you were to spend quite a bit for it. Features include 2 stainless steel burners with a combined input of 21700 BTU per hour. This is a big big grill. The cooking space takes up 462 square-inches and there is also a warming rack. Standard features like electronic ignition, infinitely adjustable burner valve and 2 side tables are also here. There is also 2 porcelain enameled, cast iron cooking grates, a removable catch pan and a great sturdy solid design.

Despite the large size, you would be surprised that it is relatively easy to set it up compared to other models. It cooks really well even with a much lower BTU per hour compared to other models. Quick electronic ignition and an easily controlled adjustable valve makes grilling a breeze. What sets this apart from the Q220 is the collapsible 2 side tables (fixed in the Q220). It also comes with a tank storage system that fastens your propane gas tank (up to 20 lb) making sure that your grill doesn’t move too much while grilling.

For a large family, this gas grill is the one you should go for. If you are thinking of cooking a real good grill for your big family all the time, save yourself the extra cash to get one of this. You won’t be disappointed.
