Weber Q 3200

Yesterday I received a notice from a local Costa Rican Weber Authorized Dealership that a shipment of Weber Q 3200 will be arriving here by the end of the month. I am wanting to add my first gasser to my BBQ Arsenal which now consists of a Weber Performer Deluxe, WSM 18" Classic and Weber Smoky Joe. The cost of this Weber Q will be around six hundred-fifty($650) dollars for this somewhat "old" technology Grill. So, should I buy a newer-type Weber Gasser or this Weber Q?? Your comments to this thread will be greatly appreciated. Oh, I mainly grill for the the Wife and I including our Pup "Manchas".

My reason for adding a gasser to my BBQ Arsenal is when I rather not drag-out the charcoal bag in order to have some tasty eats.

Pretty tough to go wrong with the Q grills for simplicity, durability and quick and easy cooks. It won't do everything really well, but it does a lot great. For any shortcomings, the rest of your grill arsenal should suffice. You could look for a regular Genesis gasser, but if a Q3200 costs $650 for you, I am sure a Genesis will run you easily over $1000. I think the Q3200 will be all you need. Also, regarding "old technology", you are getting a tried and true product that has lasted in basically its current form for decades now. There is a reason it has only had very minor changes during that time. It just works.

My Q-320 was my first Weber and I still love it to this day!! It’s simplicity is why it’s such a great grill.
I did a thorough clean a year ago and it looked brand new. It’s at least 10 years old.
While the $650 sounds crazy I guess that just part of living in such a beautiful country, you’re probably used to these up charges.

The Q320 is still my favorite Weber gasser. Heats quickly, sips propane, makes great pizza with domed lid and side vents, add cheap griddle option, no flavorizers to slow the griddle or to clean and replace, and practically rust proof.

It's hard to find fault with the Q series and that's why they have been around essentially unchanged for so long. It's a simple grill so there's not much to wear out or go wrong with it. I think you are making a good choice here.

Thank you and the other Forum Members for your recommendation on purchasing the Weber Q 3200. Yep, Weber Products cost a hell-of-a-lot-more due to Costa Rican Import Taxes and Shipping Costs. My Excellent Weber Performer Deluxe cost me $550 in January, 2020 which is my go-to charcoal grill. The Weber Kamodo 24" Kettle with the SS Table is selling for around $2700.00 at a local Costa Rican Weber Authorized Dealership. The Weber Kamodo Kettle without the Table is selling for around $1400.00

I mainly buy my Weber Kettle Acessories through Amazon.Com but must pay Shipping costs from Miami to Costa Rica and Costa Rica Import Taxes which I have been doing since my retirement to Costa Rica from Redondo Beach, CA in the year 2000.

My experience with the Weber Brand and their Customer Service has been very good even from this long distance. Life-is-Good!
