The Weber Q3200 is a compact grill that is easy to move around and yet packed with power.

Featured with 462 square inches (including the warming rack) and two stainless steel burners you have everything you need to get started. The burners produce a total of 21 700 BTUs, as I said this compact grill is packed with power.

The downside of this grill is the material used on the casing and body since these are aluminum instead of stainless steel. The positive side of this is that it is on the cheaper side and it makes the grill lighter and easier to move around.

I wouldnt recommend this grill to those of you who cook every weekend, but more for those who cook a few times during the summer with the family. If you compare to the other options on this list it is on the smaller side both in power and size, but its more enough for smaller families who dosent grill all too often.

It’s a great grill for those who dont need a huge and fancy grill. If you decide on this grill I am sure you will be pleased since Weber is known for its durable and high-quality products.

What to Look for in a Natural Gass Grill

When you are looking for a natural gass grill there a few things you should keep in mind in order to get a grill that covers your needs and budget.

I have had the pleasure of testing a variety of grills throughout the years and through that time I have kindly made a formula to filter through the good from the bad, so let me show you the steps.

The first thing to check and decide on is the size.

Size

The size will highly impact your workflow in the kitchen. If you have to little space you will be stressed or bored because of the additional time it will take you to prepare a meal. There is no downside of having a large grill beside the extra space and money it will take so keep that in mind.

If you are stuck between a larger and smaller model I would close to always say that you should choose the larger one. As long as you have the budget and space.

Power

To heat up your big cooking space you enough power to ensure that every square inch of cooking space will be heated up equally to ensure your steak will be equally cooked, you dont want part beeing burnt and one part being frozen to put things in perspective.

The power you need depends on the size of the grill, my rule of thumb is 100 BTUs per square inch of cooking space. So if you have a 500 square inch grill you want 50 000 BTUs of power to ensure that every inch is heated up to the perfect temperature.

In terms of burners, you want one burner per 200 square inches of cooking space. These are just a few rules I found to work through my test, but the rules aren’t set to stones, the quality of the burners and other factors will have an impact on the power and size.

Material

To ensure your grill will last you for as long as possible you need the quality of your grill to be top-notch. The go-to material you should look at is stainless-steel, this is the best material used in today’s market.

I would stay away from materials such as plastic and aluminum since these are cheaper materials that won’t last you for as long as stainless steel.

Last Words

I hope you found this article helpful and that you found a natural gass grill that covers your needs and was within your budget. If I were you I would look at the top three options on this list since these are the best once on the market today.

If you didnt find a grill on this list and want to find one on your own then take a look at the guide section of this article and make sure to read the reviews of other consumers on the product before you decide to purchase it.

If there was a grill or brand you think I should have included then feel free to leave a comment and I will be sure to read it.
