We use the little 1 lb bottles, I don't mind those but I can see how some would. Like others have said it's not too difficult to convert from tanks to lines if the want were there.

Good luck in your search Ryan, you're going to get tons of suggestions!

my wife got me a Coleman grill for a father's day gift. Wish she had saved her $$ as that thing is a royal pain in the arse.

Got a 22" Blackstone recently, still trying to learn griddle cooking instead of grilling. Very nice unit, but wish I have gotten the 17" instead. Retired a 5-year old Q2000 to my son.

Webers website does not show “baby” is why I questioned it. They are all Q ???? now. Maybe at one point in time they called them Babies. Does not really matter as we both conclude that you have the Q1000 model.

I'll agree that the Blackstone has a learning curve, but I didn't have a hard time learning, just have to pay attention until you get it down.

Clev, I found this on the web that might work for you.

Everytime we go to one of those tepanyaki places, I dream about putting one of those oversized griddles into my kitchen, in place of the typical 4 burner cooktop. really seems like a better way to go ...if you're heating soup or liquid whatever then put a pot on it...otherwise no pots or skillets to mess with

Well I think I am going to get a Weber Q1200. It is $30 more the the Q1000 but you get
1. Two flip out side tables
2. Electronic spark starter
3. Temp gage
4. And a higher dome to cook larger items

Many thanks for all of your thoughts and opinions.

Question: Is it just a case of removing the regulator, and getting the correct fitting for the attachment of the hose?

I was looking at the 100, and the 1200 this morning, and your post really got me to thinking about an upgrade...

Asking asking my previous question: I decide to do some "Youtube Googling", and I found this video...

YES, remove regulator. Fittings needed below for BBQ and splitter fitting.

Video above he has 4 fittings. I used a 1/8"FPT X 1/4"FPT then the male propane fitting with a 1/4"MPT, two fittings total.

After regulator removal there is a 1/8" MPT nipple sticking out.

I prefer using yellow propane rated teflon pipe dope.

Having trouble posting the pictures of the fittings.

So Weber added a zero the the model runs, is that to justify a higher price?

I have a Weber Q-200, have had it a long time, been through 3 regulators and finally gave up. Regs were replaced under warranty but the output is barely adequate. The single burner leaves a little bit to be desired, but to get two burners you really jump in size.

I like they way the lids are on the Webers, they keep as much heat in as possible. Most other grills out there big or small have large openings in the back.

For the most part the weber cooks evenly. The weber left uncovered in the rain will allow water into the drip pan, overflowing. The drip pans get holes fairly easy, don't know why.

Can be used table top or with two variations of folding stands.

I have since removed the Weber regulator and replaced it with a propane quick connect. I use an adjustable regulator to get the highest flow without it blowing itself out. Also use 12 foot propane hose and an extension as needed.


A buddy gave me a Coleman Roadtrip and all the accessories, griddles etc.
After a year it was pretty nasty looking with rust.

FYI - the Weber Q-200 grate fits really well on a truck rim fire ring. And if you drop it, most likely it will break and they are about $65

My camping buddy uses the double Blackstone a lot, he really likes. And when not using that he is using one of those Traeger smoker grills.

My big concern about the Weber is the grates. I worry about the porcelain coating breaking down. It happened on a larger grill that I had.
Isn't the 1200 bigger then the 1000?
Are the newer Weber coming with porcelain coated grates? mine is just cast iron.

"The drip pans get holes fairly easy, don't know why."

I wrap my aluminum tray in foil. Or simply clean it.

Yes the grates are porcelain coated cast iron. If one were ever to break, I would replace it with a SS one. The 1000 and 1200 are the same with the 1200 having
2 folding side tables
Electronic spark start
A temp gage
And the dome it larger
Besides that, there are the same grills.
