Q220 is exactly the same as a Q200 except...
1) taller dome
2) thermostat in dome
3) 200 has mechanical igniter, 220 electric igniter
Both of mine can achieve 500+ as measured with a maverick et73 in about 10-12 min.
Can't go wrong with a weber, I have 7 of them; 2 Gassers, 3 kettles and 2 smokey mountains.
