REVIEW: Broil King Q-Lite™

Posted by Caveman Cooking on August 3, 2015

Broil King Q-Lite™
This is the first of five reviews & giveaways we will be conducting as part of the Summer Grilling Review & Receive Series. At the end of this report are all the details of how you can win the item we are field testing this week. Be sure to read the rules.

Broil King Q-Lite™How many times have you been grilling at night trying to flip a burger or, worse, trying to turn a beef roast or baste some spare ribs with one hand, while trying to wield a flashlight with the other? Not the easiest of tasks. Even if your barbecue or smoker is placed in a well lit area, getting balanced full-field light on the entire cooking area can be difficult at best. Enter the Broil King Q-Lite™ to illuminate your outdoor culinary cooker!

It’s billing claims the five super-bright LED lights are designed to give off ample clean light in order to see your fire-cooked fare no matter what the lighting conditions are. The Q-Lite’s 3-way, 360° pivoting design and four different OEM attachments make it a truly universal tool that will fit your outdoor kitchen no matter what brand or model you may have. Plus, it’s durable, weather-proof body ought to give you years of reliable service. The package even includes the necessary three AA batteries!

Light Unit Clicks-in Securely To AttachmentsLofty goals, to be certain. But, how does it perform in the real world. In a word, flawlessly. Though, let’s not let the entire cat of the bag yet. As you can see, the light and it’s accompanying accessories are neatly packaged. However, upon opening the Broil King Q-Lite™, the one thing we felt was missing was any sort of instructions. Granted, anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out how to unscrew the top of the unit in order to install the batteries, as well as discover which attachment is right for their needs. Yet, we are simple Neanderthals, and feel instructions are always good for those of us with less than 50% cranial capacity.

Once we realized that the adjustable round attachment (which comes with four replacement grippers) was the right choice, we attached the light unit. We were pleased that the two didn’t just slide together but, rather, the light actually clicked-in for a sung secure connection to the attachment. Of course, we tried the connection with the three other attachment possibilities and it firmly clicked-in with those, as well.

The Q-Lite™ Is Ergonomically SizedThe light easily attached to the hood handle of our Broil King Baron 440. The click-adjustable clasp of the round attachment readily tightens to the desired grip level, and is just as effortlessly released to remove or reposition the light. The Q-Lite™ is ergonomically sized for a sleek look while attached to the grill, and placed so as not to interfere with it’s operation. Such as opening and closing the storage doors or grill hood, or turning the burner controls.

We know that all sounds great. However, you are likely wondering how the light actually works. While the Q-Lite only has a single light level output, it is more than enough to give you a clear view of how your meal is doing across the entire cooking surface. With it’s functional positioning options it is simple to have the light placed for optimal field of coverage. The Q-Lite™ Easily Illuminates Entire Grill SurfaceAlthough dark had not set in while we were cooking the test meal for another accessory in the Summer Grilling Review & Receive Series, you can clearly see from this after-dark picture that details of the grill grates, and remains of the chicken and ribs we were cooking, are plainly visible. FYI, this photo was taken with our phone’s camera in “Normal” mode with no flash, no ambient light, and absolutely no post-production alterations of any kind. Yeah … the light’s that good!

While we are deducting half a club for the lack of instructions, and the fact that there could be one or two alternate light levels, this Broil King BBQ light is an awesome tool that should be in your grilling accessory arsenal. In fact, once you pop one of these onto your grill, you’ll wonder why you have suffered fumbling for that flashlight and doing the one-handed flip for so long. Even if you’ve perfected or prefer the single-armed grilling game, you’ll now have a hand free for a cold beverage. Uh huh … this Caveman is always thinking! 💡

    Cool, we have a gas bbq hooked to the house’s natural gas but I find myself not using it from mid september just because it gets too dark to see what im doing after getting home, walking the dog and procrastinating. This could really give me that extra push to keep using the grill.
