Beautiful and compact!

From sausage sizzle to large roasts- this bbq is perfect for any type of cooking. Also compct enough to take to destinations with ease. I find that the hood however is a little difficult to clean because of the grainy texture however overall, the best bbq ever!

Size doesn't matter with this bbq, we love it and use it daily, it's easy to use, easy to transport and fairly easy to clean. A lot of our friends have the same or a similar model, it's easier than using the pan to fry up a few sausages. Recommend it.

I had a larger model of Weber a size up to the Baby Q. I gave it to my son who subsequently offered me the Baby Q to replace the one I gave to him. Both are Webers and I thought the performance would be the same. Alas it was not to be so. It kept switching off at the beach and could not arrive to proper cooking temperatures for couple of steaks and sausages for two people. We tried in vain. We have returned the weber to BCF telling them that it would not perform. My commitment to the brand has not changed but my attitude towards the retailers and their warranty for product has somewhat taken a blow. First off I advised the manager at the counter that the situation was not acceptable. Even though, a pensioner, I was willing to add any amount of money to get out of this BBQ product situation and buy something else; but they kept telling me that a bbq will keep extinguishing itself at the beach. I know every well that this is not true at my age. And now they are not willing to exchange, refund or consider any kind of reparation which is absurd. The item is new, still in its packaging. Receipts are there. I am going to take this to another forum. Weber must think that we are a bunch of goats in this country. Why would Weber sell a BBQ to be used in the open if it is not going to work. Definition of BBQ: Cooking outdoors. Do I have to use this one in my garage? Be careful when you buy one. It is an appliance to be used indoors not outdoors. I don't want mine back. It is either a refund or an exchange for something else.

Baby Q maintains Weber standard!

G’day all,

I was compelled to write this review after reading the negatives. I have owned a Weber Genesis E-330 for over 6 years and just can’t fault it. Workmanship, cooking ability (not always mine) and consistently!
When receiving this Baby Q as a promo from a wholesaler I was a bit dubious of its abilities.
Well, just like being at home, I was wrong again!
It’s cooked great lamb rump steaks, heated up roti bread, cooked a butterflied lamb (remember to bring all meat up to room temperature prior to cooking) and a fantastic 30mm porterhouse last night!

It’s unfortunate that a few users have allegedly experienced some issues with the unit reaching temp prior to use but I’ve had only good experience with Weber.

When my Genesis was supplied and installed 6 years ago I received a call from the Weber installer letting me know the unit was commissioned and ready for use (natural gas model). He also informed me that he had noticed a scratch on the hood and would order a replacement. After inspection that night for the life of me I couldn’t find a scratch! I assured home of this but sure enough a new hood arrived and it’s still sitting in my attic ready for a Weber anniversary of some sort.

Buy it. You won’t be disappointed. Just follow the rules.
If your looking you’re not cooking!
Keep the lid down!

Baby Q .. fantastic

Recently received a Weber Baby q as a bonus when we built a pergola we have continually used it since getting at last summer cooks great easy to clean minimal gas used and a great variety of food can be cooked on it would definitely buy another one in the future if needed to although by the look of it I think this Weber q will last many years go out and get yourself one

Excellent produce with outstanding back up

So happy with my Weber. This little BBQ has transformed how we cook and enjoy food. Yes, really.

On this BBQ I can cook the best tasting steak, pork fillet, fish and roasts. It is quick and easy to use and to clean and so simple to use. Steaks go straight on the grill and the trick is in the timing. Heat the BBQ up for at least 10 minutes. Turn once. Don't open the lid unnecessarily. Know how thick the meat is and work out a timing rhythm. Easy.

For those that say "its not hot enough" then you have chosen the wrong type of BBQ for your cooking style. Buy a Weber Q, change your cooking style, don't use a BBQ plate (grill only) enjoy the best steaks ever.

For cleaning:
1) Run at max heat to turn any food on the grill (on a weber you should have much anyway) to ash. When cool, Use one of the new "safe" stainless steel grill brushes that don't shed steel bristles to clean. Use balled up foil to clean further
2) Use a stiff nylon brush to do the rest of the grill bars. Remove the grill.
3) get a plastic paint scraper from the hardware store to clean the worst from the cook box into the drip tray
4) Toss the alfoil drip tray, get a pack from woolies and change over
5) Use a good quality stainless steel grill brush exclusively to gently brush the gas ring to keep surface rust at bay and the holes clear.

so easy

Support from Weber is the stuff of dreams. I recently had mine repaired, at home, at over 18 months old. Ownership is a great experience end to end. Great job Weber!

This really is perfect, don't know how I ever lived without it.

I have cooked bacon, eggs, marinated chicken thighs, steak and even roast beef, everything turns out perfect.
Highly recommend for small areas like units with balconies. Starts with the first click which is awesome. Easy to pack up and take with you if need be. Accessories are a bit expensive.

Love my new Baby Q !

I was delighted with my new Weber Baby Q, we cooked steaks and they came out beautifully cooked and so juicy , not dry and blackened like our old fashioned bbq, and clean up afterwards was just a breeze. The Baby Q wipes clean with ease and the handy cover keeps dust at bay between uses.

Great service

I have had my Weber Baby Q for aprox 8 years. A hole formed in the burner tube. I contacted Weber through their website on Sunday 25th November 2018 for them to contact me in regards to obtaining a new one. By 8.30 am on Monday 26th November, i had received an email from them saying that they would replace under warranty. I then received a further email from them same day giving me a tracking number.
At aprox 2.00pm Tuesday 27th November my new burner tube arrived from Adelaide. As I am in Brisbane, They must have over-nighted it. Well done Weber on your service.

Temperature seems stuck on 100

Tried to cook a roast again today. A 1.5 Pork roast is raw inside after 90 min. High for 30 min before putting in the roast. Temp. is now 120c after 2 hrs (30min. heating BabyQ and 1.5 hrs cooking). Christmas Gift from family last year. Have now tried to use three times over the past 11 months. End up bringing in and cooking in the oven.
Have watched all the videos. It looks so easy. What are we doing wrong?

Hi George, thanks for getting in touch and sorry to hear you're having issues with your pork roast. I will need a bit more info to properly identify the issue, and you're more than welcome to ring us on 1300 301 290 for assistance if that's easier for you. - what type of pork roast was it? Shoulder, leg, belly, etc. - how long has it been since you've cleaned the barbecue? Is the burner tube free of debris, cookbox empty, new drip tray, etc. - do you have enough gas in your bottle? Your barbecue should definitely be getting hotter than that after that length of time, so there may be an issue with the gas regulator too. We'd need images and the serial number to help you with that, so you can also email custserv@weberbbq.com.au to get assistance with this issue.

Huge Disappointment

Does not heat up enough to cook a sizzling steak. Have been told by a chef it is because it has just one ring of burners. Don't waste your money go for a bigger model Should not be sold as is, I have even had the Weber people out and told me it was fine, apparently they loved stewed fillet steak

Hi Veronica, thanks for your review and we're saddened to hear that you aren't happy with your Baby Q. Your Q should definitely be able to sear fantastic steaks that are full of flavour! We'd love to be able to help you get the best from your barbecue- can you please send us an email at social@weberbbq.com.au and we can run you through the proper set-up and the way you're cooking so we can see what the issue is? Thanks

Quality and ease of use

I agree with others' positive reviews of this bbq, I have had mine for two weeks and already cooked steak, sausages, lamb and pork roasts and vegetables to perfection. The two roasts were perfect; moist, and cooked well through and not overdone. These are the positives. However, you will need to purchase various extras to make your Baby Q fully functional. Go in with eyes open but the extras are worth it. I threw out my Bunnings Chinese piece of rubbish which had already started to rust. Look after your Weber and you will enjoy it for years.

Hi Gary, we're saddened to hear that you are not satisfied with your Baby Q. By cooking with the lid down, all those beautiful smokey, bbq flavours circulate around the food, imparting flavour into whatever it is you're cooking. It does get searing hot, which is great for sausages, steaks and hamburgers- most of the typical things you would think of when you think of barbecue food. It can also do so much more than that, like baking cakes, creating casseroles, roasting meats, etc. If this isn't to your taste, then we're sorry to hear that, but we realise that not all of our products will please everyone, so we appreciate your feedback.

Amazing little bbq! Another weber jem..

Shout out to weber. Firstly nailed the charcoal and briquette game for over a billion years. Have now conquered the family bbg game. You changed the way we cook, remember when everyone used to go to bunnings and buy a massive 4 or 6 burner shiny crapbox bbq that couldn't cook good bbq if it tried! Im a charcoal guy through and through but decided on a baby q 1200au for camping trips. Best descion i ever mad. Biggups Weber

Service made easy!

I use my Weber regularly and it never fails to produce magnificent roasts. Recently I had the igniter break down. I wrote to Weber asking where I could buy a replacement. They told me it was covered under the lifetime warranty. They sent me out a replacement and it arrived so fast it was unbelievable.
Excellent service is alive and well and it resides at Weber Barbeques.

Thanks Daz, and happy barbecuing!

Great compact bbq for camping

Have used this bbq a few times now and it does the job well. Heating up the bbq for at least 15 minutes prior to use is a must. Also good idea to purchase the half flat plate as the breakfast plate was too small.

The only downside to this awesome bbq is all the additional extras cost a small fortune. The small casserole dish was $99. Which is really a complete joke.

Other than that Weber do make a great bbq.

Thanks for your review Jodie, and we appreciate your feedback on the price of the casserole dish. Happy barbecuing!

Best BBQ Ever!!

I live alone so I bought the Baby Q & it is seriously amazing!! I use it nearly every night in Summer & cooks things perfectly. It heats up nice & quickly, it gives things that nice BBQ char (if desired). It is also big enough to cook a few different things up on it is you have a few people over for dinner. I only have the grill plates but these are fine for what I use it for. I constantly keep its cover on it so it stays nice & clean & out of the rain. Its also the perfect size to take to the park with your friends - I have done so a few times!

Weber Baby Q

Compact BBQ with very easy operation, so light and small can be easily stored any where and can fit in car for camping and bbq's on picnics. Amazing how such a small bbq can bring very good smoky results. Would recommend this if you have less storage space and love the best of the bbq's.

Can you use a rotisserie for cooking a chicken in baby q

Hi there, can a longer gas hoze work ok with baby Q ? From a 4.5 kg cylinder. I have been told the 3 metre hose looses too much pressure. Travelling about in Oz, there are a lot of windy spots which challenges any bbq. Any experiences on this topic? Cheers and thanks
