Slightly off topic.

Anyone like the new Weber Baby Q portable gas grill?

A real nice looking grill and would be nice for an apartment I would think.  I checked the specs and it will cook 1 1/2 hours on the small propane canister.

I used a gas grill for a long time but switched back to charcoal several years ago and never went back to gas.  I keep both kinds of charcoal on hand.  The briquettes for normal cooking and the real hardwood charcoal for steaks and when I am in a hurry.  Real charcoal using a chimney is ready in 10 minutes and is very hot.

The reason I'm interested in this grill is mainly for camping trips and doing picnic lunches while boating. I have the Weber Go-Anywhere portable grill, but it's horrible (well, it's better than nothing I guess).

My latest Consumer Reports magazine rates the Weber Q higher than most "permanent" grills... including my Weber Genesis 1000!!  :o

I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get one.  8)

Looks like it would be perfect for that.

Wow, I actually really like that one, very very portable. And thanks to Randy I don't have to ask the length of time per cannister.

What is the $$ on that toy anyway.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I finally got my electric smoker ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Bingo >:D

My local hardware store carries the Baby Q for $125.

Weber also makes a slightly larger version, the "Weber Q", for something like $189. But, it looks too large for picnics and such.

Consumer Reports rated the Weber Q at the very top in the small grills section... excellent in the "Evenness" and "Grilling" categories, and very good in the "Convenience" category.

I broke down in frustration, went to Home Depot and got the clone to yours.

Smoked a Mesquite Pork Loin 4.5 hours, delicious.
Got another Loin I have to get rid of first before the first butt. Gonna do the next one over Apple chips

Just a follow up to my original post.

I ended up getting this little grill last May and it's been a dream. I've used it on a breezy beach and on several campouts. It heats up quickly and cooks evenly... even with a good breeze blowing.

My only complaint: the propane hanger bracket is small and is designed for those tall/narrow propane bottles. If you want to use the short/wide bottles you'll have to remove the bracket.

I give this little grill 5 stars!

Its a great little grill, I'm on my second one (first one was stolen right off my porch)

The little 14oz  tanks are expensive if you get the bernzomatic brand but I found that Ace Hardware makes their own brand that are much cheaper.

I took the support bracket off mine and run the short (fat) propane bottles on it. Works fine.
