Maintenance. Take your bbq apart from time to time, clean it thoroughly, apply lubricants as necessary, you know, the usual

Re: Choosing a Propane Grill to attach to the boat

Dumbest thing I've ever bought for my boat. Big, rectangular rail-mounted ridiculous thing. I did mount it on the rail for a while, while I was in port. Just about set the bimini on fire more than once. Then decided it would sit on a cockpit bench, which means you NEVER use the damn thing when you are sailing or on a passage. It is stowed away. If I am in a port long enough (month or so) I'll pull it out. I do like BBQ meat.
My burner tube burnt out (or weakened so much that it fractured during rough times) and I will try and replace it.
Never use it down below or you will sleep the endless sleep.
Mine is a Magna Newport. Much too large for 2-3 people. If you must have a BBQ get the round kettle, my 2c.
I met a couple in the Caroline Islands with an identical BBQ and they had removed the guts and were using it as a charcoal BBQ. Same issues as I had.
The metering valves--either for bottle or hose connection must be made in O. Mongolia. Easily broken and hard to know what setting you are using.
Ok, my 4cents.
I am in Argentina now and a friend is bringing down 2 burner tubes and we will begin to asado like the pros. Well, almost. The Argies all use charcoal fire.

Re: Choosing a Propane Grill to attach to the boat

I have the small Magma on a vertical stainless tube support for the bimini and it swings in and out nicely. These grills are small and tend to run hot. The problem is not to burn things. If grease drips down you've got a fire goin'. But I like it, as long as I keep an eye on it.
