This is my TWELFTH Weber grill. Currently I have a 23 year old Genesis, a 5 year old Performer, and now a Q1200. I love them all. However, this little baby is a wonderful product! In addition to the usual high quality construction and parts which are Weber's signature, I believe it produces better BBQed food than my larger Genesis, as close to the flavor of charcoal as you can get with a gas grill. My theory is that the small area under the hood concentrates any smoke that is generated so the food has more of a smoky flavor than with my Genesis. Due to the ease of use and low propane consumption, we find ourselves grilling much more often. It is so easy to start up, heats so quickly, and I no longer feel guilty about cooking say one zucchini, two hamburgers, or other small quantities because you don't waste as much fuel as with the Genesis, and don't have to deal with charcoal for a small quantity of food with the Performer. In addition, Weber always has provided as good customer service as any company I ever have used. Their responses are practically immediate and they are very helpful.
Hi, Thanks for the wonderful feedback! It sounds like you've got quite the collection of Weber grills! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying your Weber Q 1200, and it seems like you've found the perfect use for it! Thanks!
