The O-Grill's bottom/lid are made from lighter stamped steel, and the legs fold up against the bottom so you can carry it with one hand. The Weber Q has a heavier aluminum bottom/lid, the frame/legs are made from nylon and don't fold. I never used the folding tables on the Weber, IMO they are too flimsy and things easily slide off them.

The O-Grill's bottom section is smooth and teflon coated, which makes cleanup a bit easier. Both have grease tray's that slide out the bottom and the Weber has throw away foil liners available, but I just line the O-Grill's with a small square of foil prior to cooking.

The mid size Weber Q grill was a bit heavier than I really wanted, so I gave it to my SIL for their patio. I now carry the small O-Grill in my trucks tool box, and it's much easier to move around. It's also easy to convert to LP so I don't carry any propane now, just a hose to connect to the TT's propane.

Its easy to get Weber replacement parts direct from them, which I've ordered for my Genesis at home. I've not needed anything for my O-grill, so can't comment on their parts availability.
Both are great grills and I highly recommend either, but for camping I prefer the small size and light weight of the O-grill.
Great reply offroad. I'm leaning towards the O-grill, but I'm a little concerned about the size of the grilling surface. The Weber Q100 was just too small. The Q200 seemed like a good size, but I have the same "too big" concerns that you mentioned. I need it to store in my basement hatch with all of the rest of the stuff that we already have too much of!

I just wish I could see an O-Grill locally.

We always use the Weber Go Anywhere. When it breaks down, DH goes out and buys the exact same thing. He loves it and he is the "grill man" - he pust it on the picnic table hooked up to a 5# propane bottle.

Post Weber Q220

Been using the Weber Q220 for about 9 Years now it's great....It's all I have used so I don't have anything to compare it to the only issue is the space it takes up hauling around other then that no complaints.

I think the mid sized Weber Q 200 I had was 280 sq. in., where the small O-grill I have is 164 sq. in. They make bigger one's though this one is 225 sq. in.

We bought ours at camping world, so you could see one there.
I think they only had the smaller one's though.

The big difference is size and weight, the medium Weber Q is about 44lbs where the larger sized O-Grill is like 24lbs (mine is probably 18-20lbs) and folds up much smaller. When we had our 5ver we were always on sites where the front was low, and it hurt my back getting the Weber out of the front compartment while bent over.

Our small O-grill is good for probably 8 burgers and a few hot dogs so I can cook for 4-6 people easy enough. More than that and I'd be cooking while people are eating which is no problem.

I've been using a Weber Q220 for the past two years. I'm a huge fan of the home Weber grills but have not fallen for the Q-series grills. Mine does not get hot enough after I have completed my grilling to clean itself. My home grill turns the burned on crud to ash and burns off the grease if I turn it on high for 10-15 minutes after I'm done grilling. When I come back, a quick brushing and the home grill is set for the next round of grilling.

I bring the Weber Q220 home and place the grate on the home Weber to burn off the baked on goodness. I then pressure wash the main body. Kind of a PIA to do this all the time.

Others have told me that the Q-series cleans up so easy. When I have seen their grills, they all seem to be a mess. Outside of mine, I've never seen a Weber Q-series grill that was clean.

Cooking is good with the Q-series. My comments are just around cleaning. Maybe all small grills are hard to clean and the Weber is the best of the bunch. I don't have any experience with small grills outside of this one and a smokey Joe.

And another vote for the Weber. We love it. Easy to set up and light. Easy to transport.

BBQ Grill Choice

I am a long time, 40 year charcoal guy, who has had a need to develop gas grilling on my pontoon boat and now my R-Pod. My patio has both a Weber Performer charcoal and a Weber Q 220. I use them both on most occasions and use the Q in the TT to replace the god awful grill that came with it. The best features of the Q grill are the cast iron, porcelon coated surfaces and with the new Q 2000/2200 models, you get a split grill that you can use either way. For those of you who are size conscious, be aware that there is a height difference between the 2000 and 2200. The 2200 is higher (better for beer can chicken!) and also has the thermometer built in. The stand with the wheels easily allows transporting the grill and it locks the grill securely in place. You can pick up the grill and the stand stays with it!
