Good morning,

I have recently brought the Weber Q. In NZ it comes with the regulator however overseas it comes setup to run the small disposable bottles and you can purchase the regulator separately.

I like the idea of disposable bottles if I'm heading somewhere and don't need to lug around the big bottle.

I took the regulator hose off mine but the connection is different to that of the disposable bottles.

I've asked the bbq guys at Mitre 10 who sell Webers and he didn't think that the Weber Q could take the disposable bottles. (He was also unaware that they were designed for them overseas).

Do we have a different model here that can't take disposable bottles or do I just need to find a threaded adaptor so I can screw the disposable bottle in?

Thanks

one of the issues is you need a bottle big enough for the bbq. i had a look at what they recommend (depending on model) and you can get refillable bottles about that size anyway. i have one for my camping cooker.

My Q2000 is designed for 4.5-9kg LPG bottles only. It can't use the propane/butane camping bottles. It states this in the manual.

I wonder what the difference is with the overseas ones? Surely they would have the same burner. I will contact Weber on Tuesday and find out.

I know nothing about it, but guess it's the pressure rating?

If you look for the parts diagram for the US models it shows the regulator attached to the valve on the BBQ not at the end of the hose as AU/NZ models.

I can only assume you are a politician for your ability to not answer a question and offer nothing of value.

For the record, no I don't litter.

The Baby Q100 I got in the UK was like this. We used the small “disposable” ones in the UK, and found some in NZ (Bunnings, M10 I think?) when we got back. But I got stick of it and just got a normal NZ 9kg connection once we bought a house. 

 

also we ran out of the small ones on a 3 day trip where the bbq was our main cooking system. Lucky the fush and chup shup was only 30 mins away. 

 

I can’t remember where I got the part tho (it screws off right next to the control dial on the bbq). I THOUGHT i got a replacement from Bunnings recently but it was the wrong handed screw thread. Need to try again. Weber in NZ should be able to help tho.
