Portable, heavy, not very adjustable for temperature.

I have had mine three years. My main grill, a Holland Tradition, is almost more of an outdoor oven and doesnt sear or cook hot. The Q was bought for the burgers and steaks and to be able to move around.
First thing I did when I got it home was head to the store to buy an adapter hose from my 20lb tank to the grill. I am not buying lots of 1lb tanks for this thing and have them run out while cooking.
Got it put together and lit it, setting it to high heat to burn off and season the grill. Turned it lower, threw on some meat. Mmmm, grilled meat. Found that even on the low setting, this thing cooks pretty hot. You want to cook chicken at a lower temp than steaks. It still cooks too hot for me. You need to flip often to keep some foods from burning.
My grill sits in a corner of the patio, on the bones of an old grill which is used as a stand. One day, a wind storm came through, the grill stand starts to roll and then tips. The Q hit the ground. The Q doesnt spark anymore. I can manually light it, but the burner tube is rusted and age is showing. I think three years is too soon for the grill to be in that condition. The unit is ready for retirement.
When you compare this unit to the basic tabletop grills, they are very cheap and will do the same thing. I will replace the Q with a $30 grill and have the same cooking results.
