While I have yet to mount mine to my boat
, I can say a couple of things about the little Weber grill
since I have used mine for over 3 years now..
I don't suspect there will be a problem with flame blow out on a boat
, since I routinely take mine to the beach which means 10 to 20 mph winds regularly.. Even less of a problem if you cook with the cover closed which I normally do.. It does not get as hot inside in high winds but always plenty hot to cook on..
It does have a drain pan and disposable aluminum
foil trays to catch drippings.. I dump some sand in the tray to keep in in place on the more windy days which also makes it a little easier to clean.
I use the 1lb propane
bottles when I want maximum portability (i.e. going to the beach), but I mostly use it with a hose connected to my 20lb propane
has not been a problem for me since it is mostly constructed of plastic and aluminum
, I can see you will have to replace the burner every so often as it does rust.. I have had mine in high to medium high use, and my burner has at least another 5 years left in it..
I really love the porcelain covered grill
as it cleans up well and doesn't rust as does the stainless steel
grates in just about every other grill I have owned.. I do have a couple of spots where the porcelain has burnt through and the metal grill is starting to rust underneath, but I suspect the grate will have at least another 5 or more years before I would even think of having to replace it..
I do like how the two side trays fold up into the unit once everything has cooled down..
The only downside to the little Weber of which I can think is the lack a latch to securely keep the cover closed.. This isn't a major deal since a latch could be attached easy enough..
