best way to cook
My wife gave me a family weber bbq for my birthday, and i would use it late at night after getting home from the hospital for a great bbq dinner for one, also cooked amazing desserts, roasts etc, i have convinced my mate to get one, and he is also now hooked. Do you self a favour and at least try one.
Can’t do without it!
We’ve cooked Pizzas, eggs, bacon, salmon, fish, steaks, sausages, roasts, potato bakes, vegetables and more on this Weber and absolutely love it!
We use the recommended products to clean the bbq and they do a great job... do it regularly and you won’t be sorry.
If it’s windy or cold, allow some extra time for cooking or cook on slightly higher heat with great results.
We also own a Weber baby q which we now keep for trips in the van
Love using this bbq. Easy to use and maintain. Cooks exactly how you want it. Has many accessories and products to add on. Warrenty should be longer though. And they should add on gas meter to show how much is remaining.
This is my husband’s favourite!
Steaks, sausages and fish cook so well on our new family Q bbq!!! My husband is loving every time he cooks for our family. My little son also gets excited and helps out my husband. Family Q is a really nice easy to use family bbq that lasts for long time. We won’t look at any other brand since Weber joined our family.
Just got this off a friend who was moving and didn't have space for it. OMG what lovely chops it makes. I've cooked lamb, pork, beef chops and also BBQ beef and liver. It cooks evenly and quickly. And ready to clean. You can remove the web and place it on a table meeting it the web-Q
- Family Q Premium (Q3200)
Easy and clean cooking.
Great BBQs, I got the Weber Q and the Family Weber Q premium, great for cooking of all types meat, bacon and eggs with no mesh or burning. Furthermore they are very easy to clean.

WEBER - THE COMPANY
I recently had a problem with my Weber Style 6742 Thermometer. I posted a fairly negative review about the initial response I received from a phone call to Weber. However within a day I received a response to my review from Weber. I was given an email address to further explain/comment on my issue, which I did. Also within a day I was responded to via email by Weber and the whole issue was handled & resolved so professionally. I, along with many Australians I suspect, think of Weber as our Aussie bbq and as being a reliable, affordable brand.... My recent experience with Weber reinforces that feeling to the max. How good is it in these times when a large company responds to an issue within a day and deals with the problem the best way they can, which in this case exceeded my expectations. Good on you Weber, wish there were more like you. Ta.
Weber have always made excellent products and the weber Qs are no different. Using the new weber Q is a different style of BBQing, you need to cook with the lid closed to make the most of them but once down pat they make awesome BBQ as well as roasts and the like
- Family Q Premium (Q3200)
Great product and excellent after sales service!
Great BBQ and perfect for us. We originally bought when we were living in an apartment due to its compact design not taking up much space but have since moved to a family home and haven't even thought to go bigger since it looks good, and can comfortably cook for 6-8 people.
Not the cheapest BBQ on the market, but the quality shows, and doesn't seem to be anywhere near as much gas as the traditional BBQs we've previously had that were purchase from the big name hardware store...
We've had ours since around 2013, the ignition switch has just failed - but Weber are now sending us a new one free of charge and provided an instructional video showing how to fit.
Excellent service, and very happy with the product.
- Family Q Standard (Q3100)
Best BBQ ever
This bbq is an outstanding piece of cooking equipment that produces some of the finest cooked food we've had. Whole roast chickens golden brown and crispy on the outside and totally succulent and juicy on the inside is one example. We often use it instead of the oven.
CHEAP Plastic BBQ
I ordered a family Q and received it Monday .
I started to assemble and was shocked that all the parts are plastic except the top and bottom hoods and not metal as I expected from the cost $800 of the item .
I just wanted to let you know how dissatisfied I am with the quality of materials of the bbq I received . Plastic and light weight aluminium.
I would have been better off repairing my old bbq.
Very good bbq. Bit pricey
The Weber is a great bbq. Everything cooks very evenly. It's annoying that you have to purchase the hotplate separately( only comes with two grill plates). Easy to clean. Very happy with it.
Customer service is great
It hardly uses any gas yet there is enough heat.
My grill rusted after 8 years I rang Weber to order another, they said it shouldn’t rust so we will send it for free.
It’s been the best thing!
I would highly recommend this bbq, it’s not only a bbq, it’s also a Weber & spit all in one, along with a pizza maker, I cannot fault the product, not to mention the after service for this product is outstanding!!! Extremely happy!
- Family Q Standard (Q3100)
Good sized BBQ with consistent good results
Looking at the price of the Q2000 and the more sturdy stand that comes default with the Q3000, it made more sense to buy the larger Q3000. I use this occasionally and is left outside in a covered balcony.
+Cooks food well and consistently. The closed lid cooking cooks meat faster.
+Cleaning is easy as there’s no deflector shield. All the grease drips to the aluminium tray. The remaining grease wipes easily with the aid of oven cleaner.
+the folding flaps Makes the Weber occupy less space which is a valuable commodity in an apartment.
...Cons: -For the pice of the bbq, I would expect thermometer. Paying a significant premium for Q3200 didn’t make sense. I use a Weber Igrill to keep track of the temperature now. -The positionin of the gas cylinder and front cover, makes it less convenient to access the valve. In fact I accidentally left the cylinder open and emptied it :D -I did notice some paint from the lid where it comes in contact with the grill chipping off a bit.
Questions & Answers

Hi Joe, we're sorry to hear of you experience and we will be able to work through with you to determine what has happened and how we can best help you under warranty.
Could you please send us an email via firstname.lastname@example.org with some images of your barbecue and the serial number and we can look into this for you.
I have just assembled my new Weber 3100 Q BBQ. I am unable to install a battery. Instructions state a AAA battery. Clearly this will not fit. Tried the smaller battery but couldn't get it in as springload would not allow it to close. Am I missing something??
Hi Tony, if you have a Q3100, there is no need for a battery in your ignition system. The instruction manual covers both models (Q3100 & Q3200)- the 3200 requires a battery behind the ignition button.
Hi we have just bought this bbq and we noticed that the screws inside the bbq from the lid have started to melt. I questioned hubby maybe he didn’t set it up right but there would be no other way I could see for lid to be positioned without the screws in the inside of the bbq. Please let me know what we should do
Hi Michelle, did you still need a hand here?
My question would be, are you talking about the screws themselves, or are you talking about the spacers that come with the screws? As these are meant to be on the outside of the lid, not inside.
If it's easier, please feel free to send some photos to email@example.com and we can figure out the issue there.

- There are two types of BBQs to choose from. One type is fuelled by LPG bottles (liquid petroleum gas), with one bottle lasting over 20 hours. The other is powered by natural gas, which is incompatible with any gas bottles
- There’s a standard range and premium range but the price difference isn’t significant. For example, the Weber Family Q Standard LPG BBQ costs $789, while the Premium version of the LPG BBQ is $799, making it only $10 more expensive. Unlike the standard range, the premium range features an electronic ignition and built-in thermometer.
- The BBQs have a large surface area for cooking on, with two removable folding side tables, which make it easier to prepare food
