The Weber Portable Grill Line
The Weber portable grill line is an excellent option for a portable barbecue you can take with you. Whether you are picnicking at the park, camping at the lake, at the beach or
just going to a friend's house with no grill, a portable outdoor grill is convenient, simple to use and allows you to cook most of the same great barbecue foods you would on a larger grill.
With these grills got the Weber® name and all the years of experience, support and features that you've come to expect from Weber®. These portable grills come in both gas and charcoal models. They can sit on the ground, a picnic table or any other solid surface.
All Weber® grills come with a Weber cookbook and a limited warranty.
Below are the different types of Weber portable grill that are available currently:
- Go-Anywhere® Series - The Go-Anywhere® series includes both a charcoal and gas Weber portable grill. Both have a 160 square inch cooking area with a porcelain-enameled base and lid, heavy-duty folding legs. Its rectangular design is compact, easy to carry and fits in any car easily. The gas version has a push-button igniter and runs on disposable 14.1 oz. propane cylinders which are not included. Optional adapters to a 20-lb. tank is also available. This is a great, easy portable barbecue for any trip.
- Smokey Joe® Series - The Smokey Joe's are basically a mini version of the famous kettle-type Weber charcoal grill, the One-Touch® Silver and Gold, with the familiar kettle shape. They are simply smaller and with short metal legs for portability. It comes in a Silver and Gold model. Both feature a porcelain-enameled bowl and lid with a 14.5 inch diameter cooking area (just slightly larger overall surface area than the Go-Anywhere® series). The Gold version incorporates a lid lock for carrying which also lowers and doubles as a lid holder while cooking, making this version slightly easier to transport and for functional. Another great Weber portable grill with the classic kettle grill design.
- Weber® Q™ Series - The Q™ series grills are a completely different design. Compact and lightweight, these are very portable and work well. They are all gas powered grills, operating on a disposable 14.1 oz. propane cylinder. Adapters to 20-lb. tanks are optional. They also have an incorporated, hinged lid that raises and lowers easily. There are 5 different versions:
Q-100: This is the smallest Q-grill with 189 sq. in. of cooking area and 8,500 BTU-per-hour output. Stainless steel burner, removable drip tray, porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate and push button ignition all come standard.
Q-120: This Weber portable grill is basically the same as the Q-100 with the addition of folding work side-tables with tool holders. There is also an optional rolling cart that is specifically designed to hold this grill.
Q-200: This portable grill is a bit bigger, with 280 sq. in. of cooking area and 12,000 BTU-per-hour of heat. The other features and options are similar to the Q-120 with side work tables.
Q-220: This is the same size and power as the Q-200 but has an in-lid thermometer and has an optional stationary or rolling cart.
Q-300: This is another step up in size to 393 square inches and 21,700 BTU with 2 stainless steal burners. It uses a 20-lb. propane tank and bolts to an included stationary cart with wheels. This grill, because of its added size and cart is really not as portable as the other Q™ series barbecues. It is compact compared to other full-sized gas grills, with a small footprint. However, for optimum portability, this is probably not the best option.
