    Good morning. I am an Australian who has come to Perry Georgia to live and would like to ask you if your model Weber “Q”`s (biggest model)are available here and with a modification for natural gas. I had one in Melbourne Australia and would like to get one here very quickly for the summer season coming sooner than later. Please get back to me and let me know (1)of there availability (2) If I can order one through Lowes in their Warner Robins store. Many thanks…John

    PS. I am a retired mech / elect Engineer who can very safely convert my Q to natural gas with the proper gas regulator and orifice size for the burner nozzles.
