The Bottom Line
This gas grill grew out of the popularity of the original Q. This super-sized model is designed more for the person who has limited space than the person who needs to transport their grill. At 83 pounds all together this isn't a grill to take on a picnic. This grill does however, provide you with indirect cooking abilities and as much space as a small, traditional gas grill. This grill will give you authentic grilling right down to the warming rack in a unit that is easily stored and doesn't take up a lot of space.

Guide Review - Weber Q 320 Portable Gas Grill
This model has been discontinued.
It is replaced by the Weber Q-3200.
When Weber introduced the Q portable gas grill they found a lot of people not taking it to the beach but keeping it on their patio. It was a perfect grill for urban dwellers who don't have a backyard, but still wanted to grill. In 2006 Weber introduced the Q 320. A larger, two-burner gas grill that comes standard with the previously optional stand.
This unit also comes standard with the hose and regulator to hook it to a 20-pound propane tank, after all at 21,700 BTUs it would go through disposable, 1-pound bottles very fast.
While not strictly a portable, this grill is a great compromise between a large full feature grill and a traditional portable, making it perfect for apartment dwellers or tailgaters. The two burner design gives you indirect cooking abilities. One burner runs around the edges of the grilling area, while the other cuts through the middle. This gives the grill the power it needs to heat 393 square inches of cooking area hot enough to grill steaks, while giving you a lot more versatility in your grilling.
For the price the construction of this Weber is a good grill. The straight forward design is a model of simplicity and the grill doesn't rely on lots of extras. This is a basic unit grill, perfect for someone who wants to grill small meals in a small place.
The Weber Q 320 has a suggested retail price of $479USD but can be typically found for as much as $100USD less. This grill is the same size and other than the warming rack and handle mounted LED light, similarly equipped to the Weber Q 300 which is about $30USD less.
My recommendation is to save yourself the $30USD and get the 300.
