Q 200

Hi,
I currently have a Weber Q200, it is 4 years old and the bottom cooking box has started to corrode. I tried to take out the screws in the plastic legs to release the cooking box for a clean up and paint but upon removing the first rusty screw, the leg of the cooking box crumbled. Can Weber recommend a repairer to fix this? The last three screws are also quite stuck and we cannot remove them.
Thanks!

Hi Kate - doesn't sound good at all!
The best thing to do is to contact our customer service team at head office - 1300 301 290 - or email - custserv@weberbbq.com.au - send some photos and the serial number of the bbq which will save some time. They will be able to help out from there.
Cheers, Dave@WeberAustralia

Q 200

what is the difference between the weber Q200 and Q2000?

1 answer
Weber
Weber Barbecues A.Weber

Main difference is the grills - which on the Q2000 have a split grill setup which allows you to remove one grill (one side) and replace with a hotplate (that you can purchase as an accessory) - the coating on the grills is also a heavier coating of the same porcelain enamel which helps prevent rusting. Same engine (heat output) and cooking options between the two - the trolleys that you can purchase for the models are also different - many new features to them.
Hope that helps.

Q 200

Have a Weber Q200 BBQ and it's states on the Weber stickers that come with it, that it is a Natural Gas Only BBQ and we have had lots of BBQ's on it over the last year or so. Anyway, came to clean it and replace the Gas bottle as it is nearly empty and saw that it's a LPG gas bottle with it, so now I'm confused. Also, it is VERY HARD to find suppliers of Natural Gas refill bottles, but there are plenty of places have LPG bottles for BBQ's...
Can this happen? Or are the BBQ's for LPG and Natural Gas interchangeable?

Hi Geoff - not exactly sure what you mean, but let me try and explain. If your bbq has a hose and regulator that fits into a normal LPG bottle (like the standard swap n go bottles at service stations etc) then your model IS a LPG model. The other way to check is with your regulator - is is a square shape? Or a round shape? If it's round it IS a LPG model, square is NG model. They are definitely NOT interchangeable.
The only exception here is if you are in a regional area with large format LPG bottles that are plumbed to the house, and therefore you might have a LPG hose that has a bayonet fitting on it that goes into a fitting on the house somewhere, but it doesn't sound like this is the case for you.
Any questions please call Weber customer service on 1300 301 290 and we'll be able to help you out further.
Cheers, Dave@WeberAustralia

Q 200

I have an old weber q200 but the lid is starting to peel and I feel that it will be too much effort to try and repaint it. I have seen a new q2000au lid on the web, will this fit onto my q200?
Cheers
Mick

Hi Mick - first thing to do is to call Weber Customer Service on 1300 301 290 and discuss the issue with them. They will ask for a serial number to check the age and model of the unit, and will be able to advise if the unit is under warranty and / or what lids are available to replace or purchase. Some of the old lids and hinge setups will not fit the new lids, so it's best to go through Weber to get the right advise for your unit.

Q 200

Hi. I have an original, 'bought it when it first came out' Q200. Gets used 3-4 times a week and aside from burning out a grill a few years back, it has not missed a beat (or a BBQ) in many years!;) But, alas, I noticed this weekend that the burner tube has began to crumble and does not heat evenly at all! Please help! Is it replacement time or can I buy a replacement burner tube? Thank you, Pat

Yeah mate just give weber a call or call into your nearest dealer and they should give you a new one. East to replace only one screw

Weber
Weber Barbecues A.Weber

Hi Pat
The burner tube is made from stainless steel - it's very rare to see them break down - normally it's that the holes in the burner tubes clog up with fats and debris, therefore limiting the amount of gas (and heat) coming through them. Best to check this thoroughly first, take out the grills, and inspect and clean the burner firstly with a grill brush then with a metal paper clip poking it into every hole making sure it's clear of any build up. If this doesn't work, or indeed it is actually the metal breaking down, then please contact Weber Customer Service on 1300 301 290 and they will be able to help you out from there to get it back up and running.
Cheers, Dave@WeberAustralia

Hello!
I own a Weber Q200, and i'm planning to buy the permanent cart.

Thank you.

Hi there - the Stationary Cart is the one to go for - Product Code: 8460 $189.95 RRP - just contact your local Weber Specialist Dealer and if they don't have stock then they can order it in as we do still have stock available in most warehouses around Australia. Cheers, Dave@WeberAustralia

Q 200

I have inherited a barely used Q200 and was excited to use it for the 1st time only to discover it is a Natural Gas only model.
Are there conversion kits available that are both 100% safe and effective? Or should I offload it and just get a LPG model?

No. http://help.weber.com/faqs/5/can-i-convert-my-grill-to-run-on-a-different-fuel-type

Weber
Weber Barbecues A.Weber

Actually - as long as it is an Australian model of the Weber Q200 (check the serial number on the white compliance plate sticker on the unit) then Weber Australia can convert it for you from either LP to NG, or the other way around. (the explanation above is from the USA website, the Australian website is www.weberbbq.com.au)
Just call customer service on 1300 301 290 and they'll take you through the process. Of course there is a charge for this to occur, and we will send a technician or a store representative to do the job.

Q 200

Cooking instructions for best steak?

2 answers
brians5

Hi JJ,
We found trial and error about the best for steak. A couple of things which seem to work best were
1. the steaks should be thick, about 25 to 30mm otherwise they tend to be tough.
2. preheating is of course essential, leave the setting on high and about 3 to 4 minutes a side is ample.
3. rump and porterhouse steaks are excellent, pork needs a lot less and I don't think cooks as well as beef or can be achieved in a controlled pan.
We are in Germany at the moment after visiting our daughter in Bahrain. She uses a conventional bbq as well as a Weber from America. She cooks her beef steaks for a little longer, about 5 minutes a side and rather than leaving the setting on high turns it down. They are excellent as well and we will try her method upon our return.
Cheers, Brian.

Hi JJ,

Depends on how you want to cook it.

General method:
- Remove the steak from the fridge and lightly brush with olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper.
- Preheat the barbecue for direct cooking.
Once the barbecue is preheated, leave all the burners on high.
- Place the steaks on the grill. Using the back of your tongs, gently press down on the steak to ensure good contact with the grill.
- Close the lid and cook for between 3 and 6 minutes per side, depending on how well done you would like the steak cooked (see timing guide). Turn the steak once, halfway through the total cooking time.
- Remove the steak from the barbecue and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.

Reverse Sear:
- Roast the steak on a convection tray and trivet (over the grill, not hotplate) until 10°C away from ideal internal temperature.
- Once it is 10°C away, take it off, wrap it in alfoil and set aside while you set your Q up for direct cooking (high setting -refer to your handbook for this - you want your Q as hot as you can get it for the final sear)
- Just before placing the steak on the grill, cover it in a light layer of olive oil, as this helps form a great crust around the outside
- sear the steak for roughly 60ish seconds a side and you should be done!

Q 200

Dear Rep, I bought a Q200 a month ago from Masters, used twice, noticed that only half of the gas tube was lighted, tried a few times with the same results. The ignition does work fine with sparks every time. Not sure what happened. Thx for your help.

Sounds like there is something clogging up the burner tube preventing the gas flowing all the way around the burner tube - check this for me, making sure that EVERY hole is clear of debris.... let me know and we'll go from there. Dave@WeberAustralia
