Pros:ValueEven cooking Compact

Cons:Not easy to move

The Bottom Line: Just buy it. You can move up to a fancy smancy grill later, but you might find this does the job just great.


I had been shopping for a grill for a long time, but I'm a novice griller and I wanted something that worked well but didn't cost a fortune. I almost bought an S-320 for $950 but then I noticed the Q-300 marked down. Weber doesn't put their stuff on sale so I asked the clerk and she said it was a return so they marked it down almost $100 dollars to $284 including the cart. I lucked out, the only problem was a disconnected igniter wire took me all of 5 seconds to fix and home I went with it. My first meal was 3 hugh chicken legs. I lit up the surround burner, but not the center burner, and cooked it indirectly at 300 degrees for an hour, turning it once. Turned out perfectly, no pink inside, nice and juicy and crispy on the outside. If you use just the surround burner on it lowest setting you get 300 degrees exactly. The maximum temp I could get for burn off at the end was 550. With just the center burner on I'm, sure you could get well below 300. The oval design of the unit is quite ingenious. All the drippings run right to the bottom into a little disposable drip pan. Couldn't be any easier. I took Steven Raichlins advice and put an oven thermometer inside and I did find that the little Weber thermometer on the outside to be off about 25-50 degrees. The grates are cast iron with ceramic coating so we'll see how they hold up. To move it on it's wheels is not that easy as the bottom of the cart is in the way of your feet, so you have to take baby steps, buts it's not gonna go that far on a routine basis anyway. I feel I got plenty of grill for $284 and think it will be money well spent. Oh-I thought I would add that the cooking grates are two parts split down the middle, and they both fit perfectly in the dishwasher, one on the top rack and one on the bottom. That's a big plus for me and probably a rarity for a full size grill.
