Upon reflection, perhaps what would serve you best are books that instruct on techniques that you might not be familiar with. Pressure cookers come to mind but also you might find yourself using your grill as a stove and/or oven to keep heat manageable.

Here is one that you might find useful:

The Portable Baker:
The Portable Baker: Baking on Boat and Trail : ISBN 9780070598713 - Buy.com

Cooking Under Pressure:
Amazon.com: Cooking under Pressure: Lorna J. Sass: Books

or how about Keeping Food Fresh:

Amazon.com: Keeping Food Fresh : How to Choose and Store Everything You Eat: Janet Bailey: Books

The Care and Feeding of the Sailing Crew mentioned above also has some good info.

Have fun,

Rich

I agree with the internet being a great source, just search for whatever ingredient you have on hand include the word recipe. You can also find sites that you can search for recipes with 4 ingredients or less or 5 or less etc. or one pot recipes this helps keep it simple. keep a collection of these on your computer for easy reference.
Bon Apetit

Here's another helpful hint although it's not about cookbooks. I too love to cook and when I lived aboard full time I got really tired of going through my cabinet of 1000 spices to find the one I needed. So I bought one of those clear shoe hanger things from Walmart and velcroed up the openings and put all my spices and other mixes in it. I hung it on the cabin/garage door that we didn't use. It was great! I could see everything through the clear plastic and no more tipping over bottles and jars to get to the back of the cabinet. Now that I'm only aboard 6 months it is really hard to decide which spices are absolutely necessary since I'll be throwing them away after 6 months.

There are lots of specialized books about cooking on a boat, but I would never be without the Joy of Cooking.

Carry plenty of lemon pepper, olive oil and propane. That's my advice. Fish and chicken are everywhere. Put on the oil and the lemon pepper and grill it, whatever it is.

“Joy” is the foundation of many home cooks' libraries, and is commonly found in commercial kitchens as well.
It was my “Bible” when I was an uneducated temporary homemaker (typical ingnorant guy), providing the answers to my very basic questions.

They have a website, with recipes and many tips & techniques.

Greenwald's book gets my vote

I second the recommendation of "The Cruising Chef" ... this is a classic written back in the day of wooden ships, iron men, stainless steel stomachs, and no refrigeration. At least, I think it was the '70s.

Greenwald's book is a good read and is focused on really doable meals using ingredients commonly available in the marine environment --- for example, fish.

Both entertaining and inspiring ...

No cookery shelf is complete without a pressure cooker recipe book or a sushi one.

I carry 3:
- Joy of Cooking (if I can't find it in there, I can always seem to find something close)
- Cooking Under Pressure (I do a lot of pressure pot cooking and these recipes are simple)
- Capt. Jan Robinson's Ship to Shore I or II

I try to get recipes from the local vendors if I'm going to be in the area a while. Condiments are pleasant memory boosters and the chance to sample foods in their native form a great way to broaden your tastes.
