The o’l 4 burner bbq is getting a bit long in the tooth and we had a bit of XMAS money left over from the inlaws. Its nice to cross purpose a bit, so was mindful of buying somethig we could take camping too. A bit of a hunt around online and through friends and we decided to pony up for a Weber baby Q.

Oh the accessories we havent bothered with anything other than the trivet for baking.
Now just need to get our gas bottles over to POL rather than the mix we have had
