So the 22.5 gold is on it's way.
Now to find a deal for a chimney starter and cover for the grill
|08-25-2012 06:56 AM|
But I could make an argument that these 22.5 inch Weber charcoal grills are the best grill you can buy. At any price!
I was totally shocked at how damn hot they get, yet, with lid on very efficient. They are amazing at items that need a good sear than indirect to finish (like a good pork loin). They also make a decent enough smoker (tho I still use my Weber smoker for most things). Clean up is easy. Get a chimney started and strt up is easy. For a family of four I can easily cook dinner on 3/4 chimney full of coal.

|MightyGreen||Awesome deal. Just purchased the 22.5" blue charcoal grill. I sold my old 22.5" silver (with the old wood handles) a couple of years ago when we purchased a gas grill. I have sorely missed the taste of charcoal grilled burgers. Looking forward to a brand new grill.|

Just roll down to see all the Qs series for comparison.

I thought I was in the right direction and now I'm confused with what grill grates work best.
Cast Iron grill grates?

The picture shows slight curvature on the grate, it's not a perfect rectangle, so those dimensions are at its widest point.
PM me your email and I can send you a couple of pics that I've taken of my grill in the middle of cooking. They aren't the best examples but will give you a better idea of size.

So, just to make sure, sounds like one could have a couple/three steaks going and some veggies, am I correct?

I cannot speak highly enough about the Weber Q200 grill. I've owned mine for a year and a half, and it is the best purchase I've made for my apartment. I use it at least a couple of times a week, and it's simply great, especially for the price.
Don't bother spending a similar amount for other brands that are constantly on clearance at other stores, this is the best bang for your buck.
The cast iron grate really makes this thing wonderful! Now I have heard that some stores (such as Home Depot) don't sell it with the cast iron grate, but some have called Weber successfully to either have it sent free or cheaply. You'll know it's cast iron when you pick it up, it is heavy and does some great looking sear marks on meat and veggies.
The Q200 isn't their biggest one (Q300 is larger), but it is not too small either. It is more than plenty big for my gf and I, and plenty big when we have a couple of our friends over. No problem grilling 6 burgers at a time, for example. You can probably fit more too.
If someone were to steal this thing from my place, I'd probably end up buying this exact same one over again.

|Helltrain||Really its all about size. The 200 has more grilling surface area than the 100 etc. If you are cooking for 2 people I would say the 100 or 120 would be fine for you. They are smaller and designed to be more portable. The difference between the 120 and the 100 is you are stepping up to fold out side shelves, a thermometer and an electronic ignition (on the 120).|

|mrwhitethc||Can anyone tell me whats so different about the all the Q series? You can only compare two at a time on Weber.com but all I can really tell is the BTU and size is there anything more? Really just need just need this to feed two people at a time.|

i paid via amazon and didn't create an account and couldn't seem to check the status of this order. i wonder if they have it in stock or not...

I've got the 22.5" Gold and *love* it. Have had it for ~4.5 years and the only signs of wear are where I accidentally dropped the lid once or twice. The "basket" for catching the coals is nice since we have ours on a wooden deck (on top of a fireproof pad), and we also picked up some of the charcoal baskets that normally come with the Performer model. They help contain the briquettes so when we're just cooking for two it allows us to use a bit less charcoal.
Oh, and the "Charcoal Grill" and the "Kettle Grill" are identical except for color...
