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!

There are several more models in Weber's Q series. Check out Derrick Riches' review of the Weber Q too.

Baby Webber, Member Fairmile

In my opinion, the Baby Weber is nothing but hype. After 2 years, my grate is literally falling to pieces. I put it in our dry basement for the winter only to find chunks of metal falling off all over the place. I scrubbed it in the sink only to find a pile more metal chunks in the sink and still small metal critties in my steak. Even though there is supposed to be range to control the flame, it never has worked even when new (i.e. there is no difference in the flame whether knob is at the high or the low end). There are flare ups galore when cooking and the only way of getting around that is to fold up aluminum foil in a square and place it in the center then place the food on another grate over that. I would NEVER recommend this barbeque to anyone - a huge dissapointment.
