Great oven. Lousy BBQ
Had this for a long time only because I cannot afford to replace it yet. What’s wrong with it? Purchased the optional hot plate at the time of original purchase. Twelve months later it didn't fit anymore just drops down inside the body usually when turning something over to cook the other side. Lid doesn't fit any more as the base half has gone out of shape. Had to get the plumber back to put a stop tap on the gas line as the cover turns the outer gas knob on full as you put it on. Filled the backyard with gas several times before I realised i...t was the cover causing it. Often have the gas go out about five minutes after you turn it on. When you come back thinking you will start cooking only to find the back yard full of gas again and the BBQ cold. What is good about it is it’s a great outdoor oven for roasting, baking etc. As a BBQ any of the cheap ones do as good if not a better job. On natural gas you need to allow at least 20 to 30 minutes before cooking anything for it to heat up so no good if you are in a hurry. Would I buy one again? No. Oh the problems with hot plate. Well sorry you are over the twelve month warranty by a couple of weeks. This was a BBQ supplier not hardware store. We can sell you a new one. No thanks.

Hi, I have a Weber Q300 (natural gas) with the electronic igniter and have lost the push down button. Is this available as a replacement item? Thank you

Brilliant, thank you so much for the quick response
I don't currently have a BBQ and I am thinking of buying a Weber Q series. When I did house renovations I got the plumber to put in a bayonet connection near where I will be using my BBQ. I have read on-line about LPG verses NG and there seems to be pros and cons going both ways. Do Weber recommend NG conversion? Does NG seriously reduce your ability to have a decent BBQ?
Hi Les, there should be no difference in the performance of the barbecue regardless of the fuel type.
We offer the options to suit your needs best.
Can I use my Webber wok on my grill.
Hi Neil, the wok accessory is suitable for GBS grills, as they have a removable centre that the wok can sit in.
If you're using the wok on a flat grill, it won't be stable as it has a round bottom.
