    I'm purchasing a Weber Baby Q1000 barbie.. but don't want to use the little Weber gas cans.. too expensive to run..

    If you use Calor propane or patio gas ... where did you buy the hose to connect to the regulator

    Can you buy just the hose with the barbie connector on one end.. and no regulator ?

    Or is it possible to connect a gas hose without any other connectors ?


    and before anyone suggests, I don't want to buy a Cadac .. or any other make of gas barbie.. :)


    this hose comes with the Patio gas / clip on Propane regulator .. but it's £34

    We have aQ100. Have only ever used it on a normal Calor cylinder. We just bought a regulator and hose from caravan shop & used this on a spare gas cylinder. Brilliant BBQ's but agree re small cylinders, waste of time. They don't actually use a lot of gas as they cook best with the lid down which is very efficient.

    I have a Q1200, like the Q1000 but higher domed lid plus temperature gauge. I had a Bullfinch gas connector fitted to the van for 'on the road' and, thus, do not need a separate ŕegulator. For home use(or otherwise), say in Morocco, I have a click on Patio Gas hose plus a couple of other 28mb/37mb propane/butane regulators on hoses for odd bottles I have picked up along the way. The key thing is that the bbq has a gas hose with the male half of a quick release connector and the hose that plugs into the van is a self sealing female half, similarly for the other bottle connectors. In fact, the Bullfinch connector for the van is a 'Y' shaped 2 branch job, allowing me to hitch up the bbq and a two burner stove simultaneously. A bit of an investment in brassware but very satisfying. The Weber itself has proved to be an excellent bit of kit, although I sometimes regret not buying the Q2200. Larger output burner, larger cooking area but, surprisingly the actual weight/footprint does not appear to be commensurately larger.

    Swap you my hardly used Q200 for the Q1200? Mine is an earlier version of the Q2200 but does not have a thermometer and has a single piece cast iron griddle. It is a bit more colourful as well - red base and white top. Cleaned it only a week or two ago and not used it since.

    To connect hose to Webber q I had to buy brass fitting with a spigot and nut on and I also got a bull finch connection on the van saves messing about with getting gas bottles out

    I thought of that.. but it ties you to using it under the awning and as I'm also going to use mine on days out in the car will use 5kg Patio gas bottle, it can also be taken to the beach when away in the van..

    of course, you could have both hose connectors.. (y)

    or buy the small gas can when you cut the umbilical cord. :LOL:
