Weber Q 1200 propane grill

Last night I was wandering around Home Depot when I stumbled upon a super deal. For some unexplained reason HD has dropped the price on the Weber Q 1200 grill (black) $60.00. From $199.99 to $140.00. One immediatly went into my basket. Out of curiosity i checked Lowes and they were still at full retail.

Merry Christmas to me, Merry Christmas to me.....

    Nice buy.  We use our Q1200 on almost every outing (except Harvest Host and Walmart).  It is a really a nice grill.  I have a 12 foot extension hose from our 400's propane tank which works great.

    Good find. The Q is our go-to appliance for camp cooking. Grill baskets, the optional griddle, and a heat shield for baking really increase its versatility.
    It is a thirsty little bugger, though. Like DenisP, we run it off the [email protected] 20lb tank, as it is much cheaper and more convenient than fiddling with the little 1lb bottles.
    Happy eating!

    My husband’s employer had a feedback system where people could give you accolades for your work and those translated into points that were good for stuff. Just before he retired he traded his accumulated points for a Weber Q portable grill. We love it, have cooked steaks, chicken, pizzas and other stuff when camping. We had trouble with our old camping grill when it was windy, but this one has worked great.

    Thinking of buying one of these...I see the Q 1000 has the same surface size but no side platforms...$30 less...Do the side platforms seem important to you who own this?

    We have a Q1200 and really like it. I utilise the side platforms every time I grill. The added internal height of the 1200 is a neutral benefit to me and requires a taller storage tote.

    I like the side platforms, but the deciding factor for me was the 1200 has a thermometer built in.

    ++on the side platforms and I wish our 1200 had the built in thermometer. Our 1200 is an older model pre-thermometer. We have a newer
    model 1600 for home use and that one has a thermometer and we appreciate being able to know the temp.

    I agree the thermometer is useful--my big grills have them but my older Q100 didn't. However, it was easy enough to purchase one and install it myself.

    We got a Q1000 without side tables at a good price, then added them later & find them very handy.  There's no thermometer like on our big Q grill at home, but I don't miss it for the type of grilling we typically do.  I did recently get the refillable cylinder kit by flameking.com for cheaper/easier refilling from a larger tank & legal transport.

    Yes to wings (aka platforms)  and thermometer.  Well worth the extra price.  The grill will outlast the price.
