Re: Barbecue

I soak the wood chips and then wrap them in foil. I poke a few holes in the foil to let the smoke out. BTW you can use salt water so long as you remember to use a little less salt on the meat or fish.

Well, my boat come with a Magma, which is still working ok. When it dies, I will buy a cheap one. FYI, the cheap ones are considerably less than $29.95 at Walmart.

Re: Barbecue

I had a Solaire infrared and agree it's a wonderful grill for fish, steaks, anything that does not require long, slow cooking. Infrared is so DANG hot, it's not good for chicken or ribs unless you precook first, then just use the BBQ to glaze them.

Some random thoughts: (1) charcoal re-supply is available in areas where natives make their own. (2) If you provision in advanced countries look into new, high-tech charcoal that imparts great charcoal taste but leaves almost no residue. Also said to emit less CO, altho I have no way to prove that. (3) Propane is a real marriage saver and the small cartridges can also be used with tools such as a blowtorch, portable heater, many more.

Re: Barbecue

I bought one a few months ago. Previously had the charcoal type.

Magna gas is great. So far, so good.
