Default Boat Grills

Suggestions on gas grills for boats. What's the best brand, best mount, best size for the best price?

We ordered a few different things to check out what worked best for us. Ended up going with charcoal because we grill with gas all the time at home. Excited to see how it all works out. I do like the look of that mount though

Charcoal on a boat? That does not sound like a good idea at all.

Lol well they make them, so.. I'm sure that any grill on a boat is a bad idea if you really consider all the factors.

Ya I'm not to sure about igniting/ lighting charcoal on a boat. Those Magma grills are designed to stay lit even while out in the middle of the lake. We use a grill mat on ours and it works great. I would think charcoal would burn out very fast and you will be adding new coals constantly.
Please follow-up with your review of charcoal on a boat. What make/ model boat do you have?

We just got a 1997 Maxum 2400 scr. It's got ththe extended swim plate on the back so I'm sure that's where we will have it mounted. Also we won't ever be cooking but for two of us at a time so. We will see how it works. I'll definitely follow up. If it's terrible we will just sell it and get a gas one haha.

Charcoal is messy, but that's is how they used to do it when I was a kid. Be careful with the lighter fluid.

On Lake Powell where I boat windy conditions are the norm. I would be VERY concerned about the embers being blown into the boat with charcoal.

Other than the safety factor, gas grill are a lot cleaner and less work.

Here in NOVA it has been beyond rainy recently and with my husbands schedule we have yet to have had time to intall everything. Hoping to have the grill mount set up this Wednesday and will use it Thursday. Looking forward to finally using it! If only.this rainy would just leave us alone for a few weeks! Haha

The thought would have never even crossed my mind to dump anything in the water. But thanks for the pointer..

Probably wait for it to cool down and then bag the whole grill and deal with it when we get back to our marina. The grill is only a 15" kettle grill. When we go out and grill any other day we are out the whole day so there will be more than enough time to deal with it properly.

Charcoal just does not make sense to me on a boat. I leave mine up all the time and just remove the tank and regulator when getting underway.

There is a houseboat owner at my marina who uses charcoal grill under the front canopy. Scary as hell.
