Weber Q Series Portable Gas Grill

Ready, Set, On the Go

Now you can have all the fresh, grilled flavors you love anytime, anywhere with Weber's convenient, portable gas grill. Choose from simple and compact to ultra-convenient and loaded with features.

Weber's Original Gas Grilling System

Notice how sturdy the shroud feels as it opens smoothly on its hinges? See how the burners roar to life on the very first try? Delighted by how simple it is to achieve a mouthwatering meal every time? It's no accident. Weber spends countless hours perfecting the grilling systems on its gas grills, assuring easy assembly, an evenly heated cooking surface, and precision controls so you can tone things down or up to the perfect heat level for direct or indirect cooking.

Cookbox and Shroud

The cookbox houses the components of the cooking system: cooking grates, burner tubes, and the grease management system.

Made of cast aluminum, Weber's gas-grill cookboxes are durable, efficient, require minimal care and maintenance, and can withstand the heat needed to grill at any temperature. In addition, the shape of the cookbox, when combined with the shroud, allows for the proper circulation of heat around food for even cooking whether you're using direct or indirect heat.

Cooking Grates

Weber gas-grill cooking grates come in three exceptional materials: porcelain-enameled steel, stainless steel, and porcelain-enameled cast iron. Each type retains heat evenly and sears food beautifully. Porcelain-enameled steel cooking grates are durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel rod cooking grates make lovely sear marks, hold heat very well, and clean up with ease. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates combine the ease of porcelain-enameled with the superior heat retention of cast-iron.

Burner Tubes

Weber's burners are made of high-grade stainless steel, which will stand up to the small amounts of water found in liquid propane and natural gas. The burner tubes are made of a singular piece of steel with no welds, making them stronger and more resistant to rust and burn-through. Weber gas-grill burner tubes can be cleaned easily by gently brushing with a Weber stainless-steel grill brush.

The burners are spaced to provide heat across the entire cooking grate. The burner valve has infinite control settings, so you can fine-tune the heat levels.

Grease Management

When juices drip off the meat, they funnel down into the grease management system. The grease management system consists of an angled grease tray and catch pan. The grease tray rests beneath the cookbox a safe distance from the burner tubes to prevent the grease from catching fire. Grease is channeled down the grease tray and into the catch pan. Both the grease tray and catch pan are easy to clean. The tray easily slides out of the cabinet for cleaning, and when the catch pan starts to fill, simply remove the disposable drip pan, toss it in the trash, and replace it with an empty pan.

The Q 240 Portable Electric Grill

As part of the Weber Q series, the Q 240 portable electric grill provides a 280-square-inch cooking area, porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates, a removable drip pan, and an aluminum heat-retention liner to help maintain a consistent cooking temperature. Ideal for city grillers and apartment dwellers, the unit comes with a 6-foot grounded electrical cord for simple plug-in operation. Made with a cast-aluminum lid and body with a glass-reinforced nylon frame and a dark-gray painted finish, the 1560-watt grill measures 25 inches long by 27 inches wide by 26 inches high and carries a five-year limited warranty.

Easy to assemble and very, very, very convenient. Quite safe, and you never run out of fuel. You MUST adjust your cooking style...those reviewers complaining about the performance of this grill aren't using it correctly. There's a trick to it:
1. Turn it on, oil the grill with oil on a paper napkin, close the lid and LET IT HEAT UP FOR 10 MINUTES. DON'T OPEN THE LID DURING THIS TIME.
2. Prepare your food, getting everything ready.
3. Open the grill and quickly place your items on the grill, BUT DON'T "CROWD" THEM, leave at least an inch in between items.
4. Close the lid, and LEAVE IT ALONE! IF YOUR LOOKIN' IT'S NOT COOKIN', don't peek at it constantly, give it 80% of the recipe assigned cooking time, then QUICKLY take a glance at it, or use an electronic temperature probe to check core temperature rapidly.

Adjust your recipes as needed, and take notes! If something works, write it down to make it easier the next time. I use a timer and set it to 80% of the assigned cooking time, which cuts down, considerably, on the temptation to peek at it.

I purchased this grill about a week ago and it performed better than I had expected, its a "Real Grill" without having to get fluid and charcoal. I done some steaks on it and my girlfriend said it smelled like she was at a Steakhouse! I had never seen such beautiful grill marks. Since then I've made burgers and they were delicious. Money very well spent!

My HOA doesn't allow gas or charcoal grills, so it's electric or nothing. We researched very thoroughly before buying this one and we're really happy with it. My thoughts:

Space: it's not huge but it's pretty darn decently sized. We like to slice and grill veggies so it usually takes more than one round to do all our meat and veggies, but that's just us. You can definitely fit 8 good-sized patties or 4 steaks on this.

Heat: contrary to what you might read, heat generation is not a problem - this thing gets HOT. The problem is controlling the cooking - due to excellent insulation and heat reflection, things usually end up cooking faster than you want. For example, if you're cooking burgers, you'll find that the burgers are basically done by the time you flip them and you're just leaving them on to create grill marks. The trick is leaving it open for juuuuust the right amount of time for the cast-iron grate to do some cooking, but not so long that everything loses its heat.

Cleaning: I won't lie, this thing is a pain in the neck to clean; all the serious grease funnels into a pan at the bottom, which is easy enough to swap out, and the grate itself it really easy to clean (like I said, everything gets really hot), but the sides / bottom are a giant pain. If you don't make an attempt to clean it every few uses then all the built-up grease will smoke and contribute a nasty, burnt-grease flavor to your food, and of course once it's hot you'll be unable to do that, so the trick is to remember to clean every 2-3 uses _before_ using the grill. I get a handful of paper towels, set the grate aside on another few paper towels, and do my best to clean around the heating element. This is the only negative about this grill, but I can see how when, given the choice between retaining heat or being easy to clean, the designers / engineers at Weber made the choice to keep it hot.

Overall: much better than I expected out of an electric grill.

Q240 gets the job done. Although its a little slow to heat up, and some items (corn, for example) take longer than they should, the Q240 is as real a grill as you can expect for an electric unit.

Gets plenty hot to cook thick steaks with ease. Suggested cooking times seemed a little long, and the first go around ended up with steaks that were a little over cooked for our preference, but a little adjustment on the cooking time will fix that. Rare to medium-rare rib eyes are done in 10 mins.

Only criticism would be that the cord could be longer. Most people will need an extension cord.

We moved into an apartment last year and learned that charcoal grills are taboo.
After a bit of research we decided to try the Weber Q-240. I wasn't very happy with
our initial hamburgers, but the pork chops were better. Then we. discovered Lowe's hickory chips
and results are fine. We are now grilling steaks with confidence.

Well made and something that every apartment dweller should consider.

I have owned this grill for about a year. I have the Weber 6549 stand as well.

The stand is a little bit flimsy, and because of this the stand will only get 4 stars from me, but the grill itself works great. Here's some things that might help out if you're looking to buy:

The stand is a bit flimsy, but probably a must-have if you're using this as a home grill. You will need some 7.5" by 5" drip pans (I use the Weber 6415 disposable ones). The grilling surface is cast iron and takes about 15 minutes to heat up when it's above 60 degrees f outside, a bit longer if it's near freezing.

While the grill stays very hot when you open the lid, the ambient air drops very quickly and can take a few minutes to get up to temperature. Because of this, either cook with the top open or the top shut. I always cook with the top shut and only open when I need to move things around.

Do not use soap on the grill! It's seasoned cast iron!

It takes about 5-8 minutes to cook a 1" steak to medium/medium rare like I enjoy it. Skin-on bone-on chicken breasts take a good 40 minutes on medium heat -- but the skin comes out nice and crispy and the chicken juicy all the way through.

I love cooking kabobs on this guy. It takes a bit longer than you expect, but the end result is always fantastic.

One quick word of warning: Be careful when pulling the control/plug out of the unit. It's very easy to tear the knob off. This is not a knock on the manufacturing -- it's made very, very well -- but a knock on my own lack of paying attention to what I'm doing sometimes.

I love this grill and you will too! I actually use it on my open porch under a metal roof. I have an infrared temperature gun, and the roof temperature never even changes, so it's not a safety issue for me.
