The History Of The Weber Q

The History Of The Weber Q

Many grilling enthusiasts had grown up in households where a gas grill was the only type of grill that was used.  Also, many Americans, Australians and Europeans of all ages were moving into vibrant, city neighborhoods to avoid long commutes from the suburbs.  In addition to those trends, people were seeking the convenience of gas grills that would fit on urban balconies and could be taken to venues like sports stadiums, beaches, picnic areas and campsites.   We came upon a unique grill design and we assigned a team of engineers, product designers and marketing professionals who worked together to give consumers what they wanted. 

The first Q model was born in 2004 and the Q series of grills have become our best selling gas grills on a global basis.  People are attracted to their unique design, compact size and portability, but what has really made them our best-selling gas grills are their performance.  Our engineering team worked for 2-years perfecting burner systems, patented cooking grates and lightweight yet durable components.  We regularly hear from Q owners who are surprised how well these grills barbecue food no matter where they take them.

I own a 2008 model Q 100 and I absolutely love it. I saved it from the scrapheap nearly 2 years ago when my neighbors aging father was going to throw it away because he was no longer able to grill. I have owned many cheap grills in my lifetime, but I had never owned a Weber. I half expected to use this grill a few times a year on camping trips, but I never anticipated that it would cook better than any grill I've ever owned. My little Q soon replaced my larger junk grill at home and I have been using it 3 to 4 times a week now for the past year and a half. I absolutely enjoy this Weber Grill.

Thank you Ryan for sending your comment. Our goal from the outset of developing the Q line of grills was to exceed owners' expectations. I am happy that we achieved our goal, and you are enjoying the performance and amazing versatility of your Q grill. I wish you many more years of happy grilling.

We have been avid RVers for about 10 years now. In 2005 our first RV came with a gas grill that was junk. I noticed a pal had one of these "Weber Qs" and he couldn't say enough about it. We went out and bought a Q120 and never looked back. My only experience with portable drill was the junker my RV came with so my expectations were low. But I was blown away with this little Q - smaller grate yes but it cooked with the precision and quality of my full size grill at home.

Thanksgiving 2011 I noted to my wife as we walked the dogs around the camp ground that it seemed 3 out of every 4 RVs had a Q on a stand or the picnic table. For what it's worth Weber, the Q is the "cream of the crop" amongst RVers.

In 2012 when my old grill at home died, a Q 320 took it's place. In 2013 we sold our beloved Q120 and replaced it with a Q200 for our RV. With my kids becoming teens the Q120 just couldn't provide enough grill space for their appetites.

Bottom line - the Qs are truly amazing grills.
