Weber-Stephen Products Company

The Bottom Line

This portable grill is a master of design. It packs up small with the side tables folding into the grill body yet is large enough to cook up several steaks at once. It uses standard 14 ounce propane tanks (not included) and has a 189 square-inch porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate that makes it a big, little grill. At around $200 this grill has Weber's durability and a unique design that has won several awards. Not only a great grill to cook on, it is cool looking too.

Guide Review - Weber Q-120 Portable Grill

Originally labeled the "Baby-Q" this small member of the Q family is a excellently constructed little gas grill that gives you plenty of space and power for the size. What makes the Q grill work is the construction. With a cast aluminum body that holds in heat and a heavy porcelain coated cast iron cooking grate to transfer heat to the food this grill cooks like a full sized unit in a portable size. The 189 square inches of cooking space is large enough to grill several steaks at once so you won't have to grill in shifts.

Great attention to detail has been paid on this grill. In fact Weber spent 5 years developing this line of portable grills. All in all if you are willing to pay the nearly $200 price tag for this portable you're going to get a really good grill and at the rate they are selling, I think this is going to be a product that will be around for a while.

Because of the construction this is a heavy little grill. While not suited for being carried long distances this is a perfect grill for trips to the beach or park. It is also a great grill for apartment dwellers who want a real gas grill but just don't have the space for one.

Awesome Grill, Member marcopollitt

This grill is great. I use it with a 20lb tank with an off brand hose adapter. No issues. No regulator problems. Its small footprint is great its not some monster dumpster parked on your patio or deck and you can do everything you can on a larger grill. The cast iron grill surface is better than stainless or wire grates. Heats up hot its easy to clean and store in winter or even grill all year round.
