I have a Weber Q100 (precursor to the 1000 you're looking at). So does my dad, and so does my FIL. We all love them. The ONLY thing I would consider changing about it is the built in regulator. I wish it were detachable so I could use my QC fitting on the trailer OR disposable bottles. It would be nice if you could switch freely back and forth. It's a small annoyance and there are work arounds, but otherwise, it's a GREAT little grill. Great power, great consistency, and it's a Weber, so you know the quality is there.
