I used the coleman grill for 10 years. Great little grill. I have since retired it and bought the Weber Q model 1200. They have several different models to choose from and the going price seems to be right around $199. I picked mine up at Lowes. The color options are also nice - express yourself! I love weber grills - they just seem to know how to make a solid grill.

Remember that your Vibe's grill is low pressure and Coleman/Weber grills are high pressure.

Another vote for the Weber Q... I have a Q2200; and love it.

There are kits to convert the Weber to run off the trailer low-pressure line; although personally, I left mine stock, and carry an extra 20# cylinder (in a milk crate) in the back of the pickup - I use it for the grill, and I'm never in a bad way, if the trailer tanks run low...

I don't hook up the weber to the trailer propane connection. I use the small bottles and sit it on the table. I just don't like grilling that close to the camper.

+1 on the Weber. Have had mine for several years. Weber makes a quality product that lasts. And I did convert mine last year to work with the RV propane quick-connect. It works great and I'm happy I did.. no more carrying around a bunch of little green bottles!

I have the blue Weber Q1200. Love the electronic ignition. I also bought the portable stand and the light for the handle.

Hey Russ, yours looks brand new.

Another vote for the Weber Q series. From the least expensive to the top of the line, can't beat em.
All the other grills aspire to be as good as the Weber's.

The cheapest grill you can find, then you throw it out and get a new one. The American way!

I have a Q and its fire is no better, or worse than my cheap Walmart special.

I've done a LOT of grilling and had many different grills but have never owned a Weber Q.

Just what do these grills do that makes people say things like ...
best.grill.ever.
The grill all others aspire to be.
+ one on the Weber
Absolutely LOVE it.

And just what are you grilling on these grills that you couldn't on another brand because I've sure made a lot of stuff on mine?

They last forever. Cast aluminum, they never rust. They last forever. They are reliable and usually start with the first or second push of the igniter. Parts for them, even the older ones, are readily available from Weber, so you can keep using your 20 year old Weber, cause they last forever. If something breaks or goes wrong with your Weber, either old or new, contact Weber, and they will likely send you the part, no charge, so you can keep using it, cause it lasts forever.
Enough said.
Oh, did I mention that they last forever?

This will be my 9th season with my Q and the only thing I've ever had to do to it is clean it and replace the ignitor. There's nothing in this grill that can go bad unless you abuse it. It's a cast aluminum shell and a cast iron grate with a stainless steel burner. It doesn't make a mess like other grills either.

So they last forever. (you did say they last forever didn't you? )
You can get parts for them and you can keep them 20 years. (cause they last forever)

BUT.... They don't cook or grill any better. You said nothing about that.
Just a whole paragraph about them lasting forever.

'Nuff said.

Would you keep a grill that didn't cook any better?

I mean, it's a gas grill...so on that end, they all heat the same.

IMO, because of the cast iron grate, the Q does cook better.

But, they DO cook/grill better. I can tell, my taste buds can tell, my tummy can tell, and the contented look on my face from eating a perfectly grilled steak, grilled on my Weber Q1000, lets me know that it was cooked better on my Weber.
Hey, the OP just wanted opinions on what was a good grill. and, if you look at the responses, the Weber Q series are owned and liked by the majority of the members who responded.
Didn't want to get into a pis...g match over an opinion of a grill.

They do cook better. The burners are better and the heat is more evenly distributed... no hot spots or cold spots. Mine (and I think most) has a cast iron grate. The cheapo grills have some sort of cheap painted metal. The cast iron again makes it cook more evenly and better for things like searing a steak or putting grill marks on a burger. If you are roasting something, the airflow under the lid keeps the oven temp even, and it's easier to keep the temperature where you want it without constantly adjusting the knob. The thermometer on the lid helps with that too.

And yes, it lasts forever. I'd rather spend $200 for a grill once, than spend $100 on a new one every year or two.
