Here is a great video collection covering the assembly, testing and maintenance of a Weber Q grill.
The first video is from Bill West of Barbecue Tricks. Bill put together a time lapse video of him assembling a Weber Q 220 as well as the cart. The total assembly time was under an hour.
Bill made this video in 2013 so what you will see is the older style cart that is no longer available. This cart looks nearly identical to the newer Weber Q 2000 cart and I think the older grills will still fit on the new design.
There is a link for the new cart in the post on Weber Q Grill Accessories .
The reason assembly is so fast for these grills is that most of the grill is already assembled out of the box. You will need to screw on a few fixtures and side tables, etc but the hard parts about grill assembly are already done for you.
After Bill put his grill together he used an fun trick to map out the hot and cold zones on the Weber Q 220. Bill’s heat map looks pretty much like what I have found when using Weber Q grills. The grills run hotter where the gas enters the grill and a little cooler on the back side of the grill.
Here is how you can test the temperature profile of your Weber Q.
If you get a chance make sure to subscribe to Bill’s YouTube channel. Bill usually puts up some pretty solid barbecue advice and the videos are nicely produced.
After you have used your Weber Q for a while you will want to give it a nice cleaning. There is not a lot of room under the burner of a Weber Q and accumulated grease can catch fire pretty easy.
This next video shows you how to deep clean your Weber Q including the grates and burners. You shouldn’t have to do a deep clean of your burner very often…once a year ought to be plenty.
This video was put together by the Australian division of Weber. They mention using the Weber Q cleaner which is a product unavailable in the United States. I use All Purpose Formula 409 to clean my Weber Q and it seems to work just fine.
