Hi All,

We are looking at getting a weber Q and would like to know if anyone has used the Q100E to cook for 6 people, are they big enough? as the brocure claims them to be, or would you recomend the larger Q220?

We are a family of 2 adults and 4 kids and we are tossing up between the Q100E or the Q220 which will give more room to cook on. We would also like to take it on our camping trips so size could be a factor.

Hello Trevor, we have a Baby Q and have cooked for 6 adults many times with no problems. We take it everywhere with us. Enjoy Greg & Dianne

We are only two and went for the Q100, Its great but would have gone for the Q220 just for the extra space.

Yeah we've got the 220 and the extra cooking space over the Baby Q is good to have. Plus you still get the portability of the little one which you don't have with the big basterd.

Wehave cooked for 6 on the Baby Q but sometimes we do the food in batches eg start with kebabs or vegetables and finish with chops etc. This works for us as each batch cooks quite quickly and we can take our time. The Baby Q is very easy to transport and we always take it in our van.
The next size up may be the best for you if you always cook for 6 or more. When camping or just doing family meals you will usually want to cook everything at once. Also the Baby Q will only do a smallish pizza, roast or loaf of bread which is perfect for us but you might appreciate more space for these.
They are a great design! Lynne

I've both the 200 and the 100 - both with higher lid and temp gauge. Both are a great bit of kit. Used to take the bigger one with us when camping but found it to be too large for just the 2 of us. Biggest issue was space and physically lugging it from the camper to cooking spot. Also used to take the fold up stand you can get but an absolute PITA to store so now use either a table or a fold out footstool with a piece of ply on top. Got the Baby Q for a good price at a camping show and now carry it rather than the 200. Smaller footprint, MUCH easier to carry and perfect for 2. Would it cope with mum, dad and 4 kids? Probably at a pinch but as Lynne said you'd really need to do a few batches which may not be an issue for you. Whatever you decide you'll absolutely love the Q!!
PS - reckon higher lid & temp gauge models are better - more space for a roast etc & able to fine tune heat easier

This is a baby Q . If its for camping the 100 will do the job IMO and take up less room .

G'day Trevor,
I have also been looking at the Weber Q range. Then I walked into BBQ's Galore last week and saw the Ziegler & Brown bbq. It looks about the Q200 size but has 2 burners and a high lid with a thermostat built in. More expensive than a Q100 but with the twin burner I am just about sold. Be interesting to see if anyone has bought one and their comments. They are only newish on the market.
(I do not have any personal/financial interest in this bbq or the company mentioned. My comment is totally personal.)

Hi there, I love our 220. We are a family of 5 and the smaller one would not be big enough for us. The temp guage with the high lid is great. We also purchased the hot plate, internal temp probe and roasting rack. So easy to use. Bacon and eggs tonight, lamb chops tomorrow night, i think there is some rib fillet in the engle still then a lamb roast in a couple of days, mmmm. Were currently on a two week trip.

Thanks all for the encouraging reply's, we went shopping yesterday and got a Q220 (that was the one the wife give the nod of approval to) , so far we have only managed to cook some snags for lunch today.

At least that was some thing exciting for the day, better than the surgical removal of a wisdom tooth that I was told needed to happen soon, haven't rushed into making the appointment yet.......... LOL.
