Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

My Kato davits attach to my rails, and I hang a couple hundred lbs of dinghy and motor and 750 watts of Solar on them, but I guess the grill could be the straw?
This thing really doesn't blow out easy? I'm getting real tired of my Magma.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

64 driver, sorry about my late reply, was down the mountain picking my daughter up at the airport. In from Seattle.

My 1200 is still in the box, I'd say roughly 25/30ish lbs. and no cover in the initial purchase. I have a 1200 on my deck, I rarely use it as I prefer my charcoal Webber for grill work.

Or the smoker. In fact I'm putting a 24 pound brisket in the smoker at 1800 tonight, should be done around 10:00 tomorrow morning. Kids are in for my birthday.

Sucks, I gotta do all the cooking!

The 1200 is a well built unit. We do take our current unit elk and deer hunting.

Dirk

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Other than the side shelves is there any benefit of the 1200 over the 1100?

I actually replaced the brass fitting in the Magma regulator with a smaller diameter fitting. This reduced the fuel to the grill and made it usable. We were always burning food before replacing. Not sure why they supply inferno temperature and can't dial down. Call Magma for replacement.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Had to get the cover separately.
Never had it blow out yet.
Also the weber q are very efficient are dont use much gas at all.
All round a winner.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

We bought Weber Q1200 earlier this year. It's not rail mounted as we prefer to keep it mobile so that we can move it to the least draughty place for cooking. We use it with a 10kg propane bottle.

Plenty of room in it for casserole dishes and bread tins. My latest success is our traditionally British rich fruit Christmas cake, it came out perfectly - better and easier than the boat oven

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Do they make a rail mount for a boat?

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Thanks A64. My 14 year old Magma is about on the last legs. I want something that will not burn my food up. The old Magma is too hot and the heat is not very even.

Looks like the Weber might fit the bill.
