There isn’t much difference between Weber Q1000 and Q1200 grills which generally bear the same features including; disposable liquid propane tanks for fuel and excellent construction. Both grills from Weber’s Q series produce 8500 BTU per hour to heat 189sq inches of cooking area. This is so much heat that could easily ruin ordinary grills but thankfully the porcelain-enameled cast iron grates are sure to withstand the heat.
The differences between these two grills are minimal but certainly play a part in how much you will enjoy using them. Weber 1200 offers 7 finishes for the person with specific tastes in color while you’re more limited with Weber 1000 that is only available in white. An added advantage of Q1200 is that it features an inbuilt thermometer to give you more control over your food. While both are portable, the Q1000 model is ideal as it doesn’t occupy too much room. Q1200 features pleasant electric ignition system unlike the Q1000 model with push button ignition. You might prefer Q1200 for its two side working tables but if accessories are not important to you, Q1000 should serve you well.
For functionality, beauty and high performance Q1200 certainly beats the Q1000 but if you don’t have money to splash around, by all means pick the latter. It will not disappoint with ample cooking area, high 8500 BTU and removable catch pan for easier handling. Additionally you can buy the optional Weber griddle for a more versatile grill.
Weber Q1200 vs. Q1000
Both grills bearing the lauded Weber logo promise juicy burgers but that is not all you can enjoy if you love taking your palate for an adventure. A Grilling guide with all models is enough to help you try something new each day but it is the Owners guide that truly allows for a great experience. Carefully consider your grilling needs to decide if you want Q1000 or Q1200 models from Weber.
