Guide Review - Weber Baby Q 100 Gas Grill
I was impressed with Weber's Baby Q 100 Gas Grill from the moment I took it out of the box. After attaching the lid and handle with a couple of screws and cotter pins, pushing the burner valve on, and screwing on a propane cylinder it was ready to start grilling. I had to run around town to find a 14.1 ounce propane cylinder, but your best bet is to check in the tool department at a hardware store. I found mine at Lowe's. After setting the grill up in the back yard it lit on the first attempt with the push-button igniter. I allowed the grill surface to heat up for about 10 minutes, and then I popped a couple of steaks on it. They immediately started to sizzle and smoke like fajitas being served in a Mexican restaurant. After a few minutes on each side the steaks were done just right.
The handle stayed cool the whole time I was cooking. After cooling down, I washed the grill surface with a rag in hot soapy water, I wiped off the burners with a wet rag, and I scraped the drippings into the grease pan with a paper towel. The grill was now ready for the next cookout. I can't wait to get to the beach and try some shrimp kabobs or fresh tuna on the Baby Q.
This is one fine grill!
