Just in time for the cookout season, Weber expands its popular Q liquid propane barbecue line with the Q 300 propane gas grill. This full-size model maintains and often expands upon the tabletop original’s conveniences, while benefiting from more permanent patio installation. The liquid propane grill employs two 13,850 BTU burners to heat its 393-square inch cooking area, providing space for several dozen hot dogs or even a medium-sized turkey.
Weber crafted the grill’s tall lid and body in tough cast aluminum, framed by a heat- and moisture- resistant nylon frame with glass reinforcement. A simple push-button ignition fires up the stainless-steel burners. Users adjust the burners’ output with a control knob and monitor the heat on a built-in thermometer in the lid. Meat cooks evenly on top of the two cooking grates. Constructed in sturdy cast-iron construction and porcelain enameling, the grates resist warping and rusting while cleaning with relative ease. Drip ducts help direct and collect greasy drippings. Two polyethylene side tables attach to create extra preparation space. Spatulas and tongs can be hung from the tool holders on the grill’s frame. The provided regulator hose connects the grill to a separately purchased 20-pound propane tank, which stows unobtrusively on a lower shelf. Weber supplies users with hardware to bolt the grill in place and also bestows their Q cookbook. To clean the cooking surface, use mild detergents and avoid steel wool. The barbeque grill requires some minor assembly. Weber offers a limited five-year warranty for this item. With the lid closed, the grill measures 44 by 36-1/2 by 22 inches. This product weighs 84-2/3 pounds upon shipping.

Love this grill
“I’ve had the Q300 for about 10 weeks and grilled on it 3-4 times per week. Grilled steaks, roasts, chicken (both direct and indirect heat), pork loins, hamburgers and hotdogs and the Q300 handled it all.
Gets hot fast:
From start with both burners on high…3 minutes grill is at 310 degrees….7 minutes 400 degrees…..10 minutes 520 degrees….14 minutes maxes out at 590 degrees
I like to cook chicken and pork over indirect heat, so I really like having the two burners with separate controls. The larger burner runs the perimeter of the grill and a second, smaller burner, goes down the center.
Outside burner only (High)..maintains 400 degrees,(Low)..300 degrees
Center burner only (High)..maintains 300 degrees,(Low)..200 degrees
Both burners on (High)..maintains 590 degrees, (Low)..500 degrees
Heavy duty cast-iron cooking grates. Grates dimensions are 25 inches x 17.5 inches.”
Big enough for a family

“I won’t elaborate since the other reviews do a great job. Just want to add my 2 cents that the grill is outstanding – gets hot quickly, cooks everything you throw at it, and has plenty of surface space for grilling for about 6-8 people.
If you frequently throw parties then buy a larger grill, but if you primarily grill for the family then this one is excellent!”
