Compact and portable
Long lasting and durable
More affordable than other BBQs
Larger Weber BBQs may be more effective
Broke down after minimal use
We bought a baby q to be our second bbq (we also have a charcoal / smoker). We’ve used it occasionally for steaks and sausages when in a hurry. It was ok until the gas hose started leaking. Luckily we heard the hiss and nobody was injured. We’ve only had the bbq for 4 years so I was a bit surprised that it failed. The worst part though was trying to buy a replacement gas hose. I visited a Weber stockist, only to be told I needed the serial number and receipt if I wanted to purchase any parts. When I asked why I was told that Weber wanted to tra...ck me. On the web site there is also no ability to purchase parts or even get a part number. I had to hand over my personal details including my home address and phone number in order to even contact support. Completely disturbed by this and certain I will never buy a Weber again.
Purchased in December 2016.
We purchased a baby q 10months ago and are really struggling with it. On the lowest setting with the lid down, the temperature consistently soars to over 200 degrees. We have to either keep opening the lid to reduce the temp to avoid burning everything or prop the lid open. Any ideas?
Burnt Pizza's NOT HAPPY
I purchased the baby Q today; as we had some friend's coming over for dinner. I assembled the WeberQ as per instructions, placed a pizza stone in the WeberQ and set about preparing the pizza base's & toppings. The pizza bases instructions say to pre heat oven to 230C, ok it took a while to get up to the required temp. I then placed the first pizza in the oven and two minuets latter everyone laughed as the smell of smoke rose from the WeberQ, the bottom was burnt black and the topping uncooked.
The rest of the pizzas were cooked inside in the oven, my friends think its funny but I'm sure they will defiantly not be buying a WeberQ
Not sure, maybe I need to stick to steak & chops.
The ads show this as easy to move around and it is BUT keep in mind that grease begins to build up from the first time you use it and although you can give it a clean you are till transporting grease and the smell of BBQ in your car in the sun. It is not a very pleasant experience.
Compact, easy to move around and big enough for the average family
Grease management and cleaning
Questions & Answers
Are you guys going to bring out a retrofit for the Baby Q for a flame out sensor.? There are a lot of us who have this model and use off a bayonet fitting from the van / motor home.
Now with new Australian regulations, this is no longer legal and I will be mightily annoyed if I have to replace the Que with another brand that does comply.
We have a weber baby q and the temp on low setting is still around 180 how can you get it lower
Can this be used with the small screw on non-refillable gas cylinders like Coleman Lightweight 1 lb LPG Bottle in Australia?
