Compare Weber Q Grill Models

Today I want to compare all the models you can choose from in the Weber Q Series. Weber Q grills are some of my favorite portable grills, but there are quite a few differences between them.

Below is a comparison table of all current Weber Q models. The series contains eight different models that come in different sizes with various features and include liquid propane, natural gas, and electric models. Choose from small, bare-bones models or full-sized models with all of the bells and whistles. There is a Q that will fit your needs.

Following the table, I further explain the differences to make sure you can see which of the Q’s is best suited for your situation. (Take me to that!)

Important Note
I do not consider either of the Weber Q 3200 models to be portable grills. They are far too big!

What All Weber Q Grills Have in Common:

No matter which of these grills you choose, each Weber Q grill has the following features:

  • Cast-aluminum bodies
  • Glass-reinforced nylon frames
  • Cast-iron cooking grates coated with a porcelain enamel coating
  • Gas models have long lasting stainless steel burners
  • Electric models have 6′ grounded cords
  • Easy to clean removable drip pans
  • Each Weber Q grill comes with an excellent little recipe booklet
  • All LP models use the same regulator and Weber’s Infinite Control burner valve
  • All carry a warranty

Weber Q1000 & Weber Q1200

The smallest of the Weber Q models, these grills are hard to beat when combining quality with portability. Perfect for small families wanting to barbecue at the beach or the park. Fantastic for tailgating or to use on your next camping trip. As with all the Q’s, they are easy to clean with their smooth lines and removable drip pan.

Ideal for cooking hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, steaks, and veggies. When it comes to other items such as roasts or ribs, you may find that the lid is a little too shallow and the cooking area is just a bit too small.

They both accept both the 14.1oz and 16.4oz disposable propane bottles. An adaptor hose can easily convert to a 20lb propane tank. This is far more cost-effective and won’t leave you running out of propane halfway through cooking a meal.

The major difference between these models is that the Q1200 has a thermometer built into the grill lid. The Q1200 also comes with an electronic ignition compared to the 1000’s clicky push button. The Q1000 does not have side tables.

The Q1200 is also the colorful model of the bunch. Though it’s available with the same Titianium colored lid that all other gas models have, it is also available in several other colors as well. Red, blue, orange, and green colored lids are all unique to the Q1200, but it also has a black model, similar to the electric versions.

For the Weber Q 1200, you can expect to pay around $250, but I have seen some places that try to sell it for closer to $300.

The Weber Q1000 is less than $200 MSRP, but I have seen it grossly overpriced in some areas. I think paying $200 for it is probably just about right – finding it at a lower price is a deal.

For the Weber Q1200, you can expect to pay around $250, but I have seen some places that try to sell it for closer to $300.

Weber Q2000 & Weber Q2200

These two grills are larger than the Q1000 series but retain their portability. The larger size means not only more grilling space but also a taller lid. This tabletop grill gives you many more cooking options, such as roasts, ribs, even whole chickens, and smaller turkeys. Indeed a strong combination of portability and full-size grill cooking.

Beyond size, the rest of the features remain the same as found in the Q1000 series. The Q2200 offers a built-in thermometer in the hood and electronic ignition. The Q2000 comes with the standard push-button ignition and no thermometer.

Prices vary but expect to find them between $250 ~ $300 for the Q2200 and $200 ~ $250 for the Q2000.

Weber Q1400 & Weber Q2400

The main difference between the Weber Q1400 & Q2400 and their counterparts is that they are electric. Instead of stainless steel burners, these two grills come equipped with 1560 Watt cooking elements.

Size-wise and feature-wise, the Weber Q1400 is identical to the Weber Q1000, and the Q2400 is the same size as the Q2000. The major exceptions are that neither model has a button to light it since they do not use gas fuel.

The Weber Q electric grills are a little more expensive than their propane counterparts. The Weber Q1400 runs between $250 and $300. The Weber Q2400is priced somewhere around $300 to $350.

Weber Q3200

The significant difference between the Q3200’s compared to the Q1000 and Q2000 series is that they are not really portable. These two grills come with a stationary stand that the grill unit bolts onto.

Either of these grills would be great for those that don’t have the room for a full-size grill but still want the feel of a full-sized gas barbecue. Both of the 3200 models include folding side tables for storage in tight areas.

Both of these grills also work like big barbecues. The LP model comes with an adaptor hose to connect to a 20lb propane tank. The natural gas model includes a hose and fittings to connect to a barbecue service line, should you have one.

More Features

Rather than do a review on a grill that isn’t portable, I’ll give a general run-down of the Weber Q3200 features here.

The stand has a tank screen to keep the bottle from view. I think that’s quite handy, as it also protects from the elements, meaning your propane tank won’t rust out if you live in more humid areas.

Other features include a thermometer built into the hood and two Q-shaped burners instead of one. They also have an easy-start electronic ignition.

These two models are again bigger and better than the Q2000 or Q2200. They have a larger cooking area (393 square inches) and more heat (21,700 BTUs). According to Weber, the size of this grill will allow you to cook up to 18 hamburgers or 36 jumbo hot dogs at a time. That’s enough to throw a nice backyard dinner party for your neighbors!

Lastly, the Q3200 includes a significant feature that none of the other grills have. The Q3200 is the only grill out of the Weber Q Series with a warming rack, something rarely seen in my reviews. Those accustomed to cooking on a full-sized grill know that a warming rack makes a difference to your barbecuing.

The manufacturer’s warranty on all of these grills is outstanding. The warranty on the cast aluminum body and Thermoset/Thermoplastic parts is 5 years. That does not include fading or discoloration. Warranties on all other parts are for 2 years, which is more than enough time to work out any defects that might be present.

The warranty on the cart is 2 years.

Which Weber Q Grill Should I Buy?

Which one of the Weber Q Series grills is right for you? In my opinion, they are all great picks. Look at the table above to see what each grill includes; pick the one with the features you want.

The Q1000 Series is lighter and more compact, while the Q2000 series has more grilling space and a taller lid. You will find a model in each series that has a built-in thermometer and folding side tables.

Please see the links I’ve listed in the table for each Weber Q Grill to further your research. There are links to retailers and to my own detailed reviews and price comparisons.

This is all of the information that I can share with you at this time. I can’t help you decide which model is best for you, but I can tell you that I currently own two Qs, and they are both outstanding.

My Personal Experience with Weber Q Grills

The first portable grill I ever bought was a Weber Q100, the older version of today’s Weber Q1000. I did a full review on it here. I bought it when I started this site back in 2011, and it actually was the reason I created this website.

I also own a Weber Q2200, which I have not done a review on, but I did write a review on its older model, the Weber Q220, which you can find here.

My experience with both of these grills has been excellent. I don’t use them much anymore because I’m always testing new portable grills, but let me expand on that.

I still have them. Both of them. [Picture below for proof]

My Weber Q2200 and Weber Q100 grills.

I often sell a grill after I’ve finished my reviews, but these two grills I keep for the day that I don’t have to review grills anymore. Maybe I’ll get my own RV with the perfect-sized cupboard that I can stow one in. Perhaps the other will take up permanent residence on my balcony.

Maybe you won’t find them as great as I do, but few portable grills work as hard.
