Magma BBQ Blowing Out

Hi all,
I tried BBQing on my stern rail in a really good blow last week and the damn BBQ kept going out. I also remember an overnight trip with my family when it was blowing pretty good and the same thing happened. I have tried creating a wind shield out of aluminum foil, but had mixed results.
I have come up with a small stand made of 3/4" galvanized pipe that should allow me to move the grill into my cockpit on those windy days. I'll let you know how it works, but I would also be interested in solutions used by others.

Cheers, Bill

You already know what I'm going to say (I think I mentioned it on other threads), I've gone electric BBQ and never going back to propane.

Stand is a good idea. I'd put a metal pan of some sort under the rig to keep the decks safe (and clean).

Keep us posted.
