While a gas grill, in general, is a great cooking tool to use at home, the portable grill has a compact size which makes it ideal to use for picnics, family trips, concerts or sporting events as well.

You can easily fold it so that you can take it with you or so that you can store it when it is not in use.

Weber Q220 Features

One of the Weber grill’s best features is its electronic ignition. This allows you to easily turn on the fire on your griller in just seconds. You will also be able to keep its fire under control thanks to its adjustable burner valve with a high quality regulator. It has a U-shaped burner to ensure that heat is distributed uniformly.

It has a cooking area of 280 square inches which means that you can grill up to 15 hamburgers at once. That is a large cooking area considering that it is a portable grill. It also features a built-in thermometer so that you can easily check what your food’s cooking temperature is and adjust the fire as necessary.

Sturdy and easy to use
