The Mrs suggested I research the Goldairs but I haven't seen too many positive comments around them.

 

Does the Weber Q3200 have a rotisserie option? 

 

 


Yes, but it's a $299 upgrade.

 

 

The main reason I have not bought a Weber. No realistic rotisserie option.

 

Plus I do use a side burner occasionally, something else a Weber can't do.

I want one of these: https://www.bbqgrills.co.nz/product/daniel-boone-pellet-grill/

 

 

 

Need some more pellets for mine!

 

 

Can't use it if you have no power. No good if you live in an area that is has frequent and lengthy power cuts :)

I have a Weber q 2000 and also had paint bubble on the lid. Took a couple of pics and sent the serial number to Weber nz. Had my replacement lid within 3 days. Can't rate Weber support highly enough.

Actually haven't used it for a year now because of all the crap weather! But yes, power is required in addition to pellets, which makes me think if it's still worth it than just using a gas BBQ.

Ouch!

 



Yep. We use our current BBQs for rotisseries all the time, so we did pony up the cash for that, despite the exorbitant cost. 

 

 

Out of interest what do you cook on the rotisserie that you can't use the roasting tray for?

Probably nothing. We do whole chickens, and beef, pork, and lamb rolls.

I do love how (once you get your timings dialed in), rotisserie is pretty much "set and forget". Although, having to turn a chunk a meat a time or two is hardly THAT burdensome. Guess it comes down to being a creature of habit.

With the Weber Q, you don't have to turn the meat on the roasting tray - so just as easy as a rotisserie.

Yeah, I see that. The one regret I have is pulling the trigger on the rotisserie right away.

But I believe I saw that it's possible to pair it with the vegetable rack underneath for awesome veges roasted in the juice of the cooking meat. That would almost make it worth the price of admission. :-)

Had the normal gas BBQ for years before going to a Weber kettle charcoal BBQ - will never go back, absolutely brilliant.

I've just started looking for a new BBQ too and honestly didn't know where to start until i saw this post a few days ago. Great to see so many positive reviews on Weber Q 2200, sounds perfect for our needs and might be just where we start looking.  Thanks GZ community for sharing!

Maybe, but what are the Webers like for cooking steak - do you really need to use them with the lid down?

Just bought my Weber Q 2200 + half hot plate. Absolutely amazing. For me the biggest thing is that food on any edge of BBQ was cooked the same as in the center.
