I have gone on the Magma site and can not find any conversion kit for my Magma charcoal to gas, charcoal is very messy and would like to convert mine to gas any thoughts on where, if any place that I could find conversion kit (12"_ thanks ---Seabee !!
I had the 12 inch round one and I got rid of it. When being used with the top on you have to have a mitt to remove the top while cooking and the thing will take the hide off your arm if you brush up against it and wind was a problem. It cooked good while lit.
Perhaps a better choice might be a Weber Q-200. 12000 btu, comes with a cast iron grill. Made of Aluminum. Has disposable drip pan $189. @ Home Depot.
I am thrilled with mine and I am fabricating a rack to hang it over the side of the cockpit off the rail. If it last 5 years, it will have paid for itself, and rather than rebuilding for that price just buy another. I am running it off my big lp gas cylinder (or tank).

Would love to see what you come up with as those are great grills - keep us posted.
I'm very happy with my charcoal Magma. I have one question though which others might be able to help with: I use the Magma round chimney/tube thingy to start it with a couple of fire-lighters at the bottom and the rest filled with charcoal. Problem is it that while it holds just enough charcoal to do a couple of steaks, I'd like to be able to do more when I have company. Get a second tube?
