    This looks very good. Where is this supplier?

    Will be interested in the Q3000.

    So was rather disappointed today. A couple of days ago I went in and bought accessories, spare gas cannsters at R 69.30, drip pans at R 34.30 per 10 etc. Spent R 1 200 on bargains. Was told that everything was 30% off.

    Today I get there and the manager is there and suddenly the discount has dropped to 20%. Anyways I bought my burgundy Q1200 for R 3 439.20 which is still a good deal.

    They have three Q3000's ranging in price (I think based on the stock value at the time), the manager did not want to commit to prices but there is a burgundy one that will probably go for R 7 400 and includes the LED light. A grey one that should go for circa R 6 500 without light and a black one with light for R 7 500.

    They have two electric Q1200 in size.

    There is a black Q1200 that will probably go for R 3 500.

    There is also a Q2200 that may go for R 4 600.

    I really don't know as she was all over the place with her pricing, she want to do the deal direct with the buyer and was reluctant to quote me firm pricing. Bit of a poor attitude.

    I can go in and firm up a price on one if attractive enough.

    The shop is;

    Tafelberg Furnishers
    Cnr Voortrekker and Redruth Street
    Alberton

    Literally 5 minutes from the Voortrekker off ramp.

    Thanks Andrew for your effort.

    Pity she is jumping around.

    I will wait for the next one.

    They are closing the branch, she is shortsighted ........ perhaps that's why they are closing the branch.

    I see Amazon stocks a stainless steel grid, but of course the price and shipping is rough.
    Weber Q2200 Flat Plate V2.pdf

    So Version 1 was about 5mm too small in both directions. I have altered the drawing and am confident that the new drawing is spot on. I would like to have it printed and to overlay the print on the grid to verify 100% so dont use the drawing just yet.

    The questions are;

    1. Do we retain the indents (lifting points) on the side that are used to pick up the grid or do we dispense with these and add two handles to the top of the plate?
    2. How does one retain the oils etc. that will be generated in the frying process or is this no of concern?
    3. What thickness would we want the plate to be?
    4. What material should the plate be made of, I prefer mild steel?
    5. Is there enough interest to do a group buy? If so I can give the .dxf file to a metal fabricator and they will cut this exactly to size.

    Cheers

    Andrew,

    For simplicity, I would retain the indents and not bother with adding handles.
    Thickness... probably as thin (light) as possible without warping on heat. Not sure what that would be.
    The oils can drip through into the drip tray IMO.

    I completed the Q1200 template today.

    4mm may well work.

    What is the purpose of this steel plate you guys are writing about?

    A cheaper solution with similar results IMHO is the braai mat.

    4mm th is quite heavy and in stainless quite expensive. Steel will rust in good time to take it with on camping I would opt for the braai mat.

    I use and like braai mats. Haven't used it yet on the Q.
    Actually my goal may be different to Andrew's - I just want to get a much lighter grid than the supplied one. Something like this.


    New question:
    The Q2200 comes with an coupler to a 9kg cylinder. What is the best and safest way to also use it with a smaller 3kg cylinder for camping? Something like this?
    I still want to use it at home on the 9kg, so both options must be available. Is there some quick-swop option?

    Johan,

    Couple reasons.

    The flat plate makes a nice stir fry option and in my opinion will also be much cheaper than buying two of the Weber issue plates. This remains to be seen though.

    The second is the same as Roelof. When one requires real portability, substituting the heavy grids for a light weight SS grid makes a significant difference to the total weight of the unit. The only issue I see with this is that one would need to fabricate an angle shield / suitable shield to cover the burners to a) stop fat from dripping directly onto the flames (burner holes) and b) to provide indirect heat to avoid possible burning. The current pattern of the cast iron grid protects the burner to a large degree.

    Finally I wanted the outline to build a spit attachment such that one can use the standard commercially available portable spit arrangement rather than Weber's expensive option. I believe that this is possible but again one must fabricate a protective cover for the burner. So the theory would be to remove the cart iron plates and have the spit shaft protrude through the slots each side of the lid. I use a spit a lot and have gotten too lazy to tend the fire.

    It's nice to play around with stuff like this.

    I understand.

    Received a one half Weber plate as a Christmas present and used it once.
    Ok results. A bit of a schlep though to find convenient storage for it in the Commander.

    Now with the braai sheet the braai results are similar and I assume the Weber plate will stay home...

    Hi,

    So as near as dammit is to swearing I have scale drawings which will suffice as a template for anyone wanting to cut a flat plate, fit an alternate grid etc. This is for both the Q1200 (and Q1000) and the Q2200 (and Q2000). I cannot attach .pdf's in these posts so if you want scale .pdf's to use as templates then please PM me with an email address and I will forward these to you.

    For those who cannot decide between the Q1200 and the Q2200 here is a scale drawing showing the relative size, area and heat capability.

    Andrew do you perhaps have drawings for the Q3000?

    I don't as I don't have one in my stable. If I did I would gladly produce drawings for you.

    If you take a couple of measurements we could give it a go. Will cost you R 25 to print at post net, cut it out and fit it then we make the necessary alterations and it should be spot on. You keen to have a go?

    Good morning all

    I have a Q2000, of late, when I close the lid, the flames closest to the front all go out, when I lift the lid they burn, close the lid they die, why is that?

    I have also noticed that my Q2000 does not have this regulator...i only have the brass part where the gas hose is connected.

    So you have a regulator at the bottle?

    You have a control knob to vary the heat of the flame?

    Your burner tube with all the holes in is clean and all the holes are unobstructed?

    You bought it brand new?
