Grill suggestions

Just wondering what people thing of the Weber Q 120. does it have enough heat. I noticed the 120 is smaller in size and has 8500 BTUs. the Weber Q 220 has 1/3 more square inches, and 12500 BTUs. Im selling my coleman roadtrip, terrible cooking and a disaster to clean

I noticed some of the new outdoor kitchen models come with a stand that ubolts to the rear bumper, for a grill, that swings out. They also will come with the sidekick grill. I called my Keystone dealer and bought that stand (pricy $180). But I bought the Olympian 5500 stainless grill. I believe it has 180" of cook top and at 12000 btu's. I bought it, cause it hooks into my quick disconnect propane fitting for my outside stove(its meant for low pressure). Just got both Sat, so the next trip I will comment on how it works, and take some pics. I have a roadtrip also but its too big and a mess to cleanup.

Either one of the Webers will do the job much better than the Road-trip. If you find someone to buy your Coleman, see if they have a friend who wants mine also.

We have the small version of the Weber Q line - a great little BBQ that feels and looks like quality. Plenty of heat for normal cooking unless you are BBQing for a crowd. At this point, I would give it 2 thumbs up!!! Buy one. You will want to BBQ all the time.
Bite the bullet, Hank. Do it.

I have a Q120 which I have just rigged to one of the propane tanks on my Outback with a 12' hose and adaptor. The grill works great, with a nice even heat and no apparent hot spots. I find it big enough to grill for a family of 4 and a couple guests. Ignites with one quick press of the ignitor and is easy to clean. I picked up the optional cart and cover, too.

We have the Q120 and love it.

We are getting ready to get a larger propane tank and get a quick release set up. Now that we are fulltiming the little propane bottles from Walmart don't cut it anymore - having to buy those things all the time!

My wife and I bought the smaller Weber grill when we got back into camping in 07. We have used this Weber every time we go camping and never had an issue with it, in fact the Weber out cooks the outdoor grill at home. We use to go through 1 or 2 small propane bottles a year, now with the new Cougar and the quick connect on the propane line no more bottles.
For a stand we bought a light weight AL table from Camping World for under $30. Cleans up well has extra room for cooking tools along with a place to rest the plate for the meat when transfering from the grill. The legs fold up and I store this in the basement of the 5er.

The Weber Q is a big hit with us as well, we love it and it is the first thing that goes in the toy hauler. Remember to buy the griddle option its great for hot cakes and bacon.

Thanks all for the input. I managed to sell my POS coleman roadtrip on craigslist for $150 yesterday. I'm now the owner of a brand new weber q 120 with stand and cover from lowes.
