Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

I recently added the griddle to my Q for making bacon and breakfast sausage without getting grease all over the galley.

Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

We have the griddle too, expensive thing isn’t it.
As far as the grease catch pan, be sure to attach it somehow or it will blow out, and everytime it rains, be sure to drain it or it will make a mess when your underway.
I drilled a hole in the handles of our pan and use safety wire to keep it from blowing away.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Hi Friends,

thank you for the thread. We are happy with our new barbecue. We developed a support for the Weber Q. But watch yourself:

I wanted to tell you that the Weber Q series grilles are great.

LP bottles are two types.
The Q series uses a one pound camping size LP bottle.
If you want to use a 20# bottle, you need a $25 adapter.

Cover
Weber covers are around $25 and are of good quality.
Or sew your own from some leftover Sunbrella.

Save on Shelves?
The left/right folding shelves on the 1200/2200 models are nice.
The 1000/2000 has no side shelves and are $30 less expensive.

Durability
My previous "stainless" grill was a rusty mess.
The Weber Q series is mostly marine quality.
except the igniter parts.

True Cost
My larger size Q2200 total cost was $300. It is not mounted.
$220 + $25 cover + $25 LP adapter hose + $30 propane bottle.

Very Happy
I've had it for two years. No complaints.
Heats fast, Cooks evenly, Quality construction.
Expensive, but will last a long time.
I can only buy the Weber here online sight unseen, except for YouTube videos.

For a crew of 4 who would do veggies along with fish or meat at the same time....
Is the Q1200 big enough or should I buy the Q2200?

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Here's a amateur video review of the Q1200, if you jump to the 8 minute mark you can see how much chicken is on the grill, so that might help you to extrapolate your needs versus space.

The best advise I got here was to order the black one. Smoke does come up around the sides and those nifty bright colours do get smoke stained, I went with black and glad I did. And I will echo what others have said, I love this grill. FYI, I am and have been a huge Weber fan for the past 25 years. I've owned two large backyard Weber Grills, love the first one, love even more the second one, and now the Q1200. I did own one marine BBQ but I wasn't happy with it and I don't recall the brand.

In your equation don't forget to include how much of a footprint the grill is going to take up in your cockpit, if space isn't abundant, go for the smaller Q1200.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

Thanks rsn48 for the advice.

I have enough space to fit either but obviously the smaller will store better in Lazarette on passage.

Yesterday I found this guy who has done a whole series of BBQs videos using the Q1200 and it convinced us that this will be big enough for most of the situations.

Unfortunately here in the Philippines, they don't supply black, so I will eventually have to paint it.

Re: Weber Q1200 Grill on a boat

My black one pretty quickly began to turn whitish, it’s a salt water vs aluminum thing, so I wouldn’t worry too much about the color.

Lol...good to know,

Just ordered....Titanium is the only color available, so whitish with black streaks seems to be the color scheme

Use a boating salt remover and spray the top with high temp barbeque paint, and voila, you have a black top again.

It seems as though Magma Grills is getting a bit of competition from Weber Grills.

We have been seeing these Weber Q1200 grills on a lot of boats for a few years now.

We have used one of these at home for many years ourselves and really love it.

Lots of ways to mount them on a boat

Mounted the Weber Q1200 to our 1” stern rail.
Used the Magma Dual Extended Horizontal Round Rail Mounts. This mounting makes it rock solid.

The Weber Q1200 was $140
The Magma rail mount was $90


We will add a cutting and serving table on the side made from starboard.
LOVE this Weber Q1200 idea for a boat, and it's certainly a BIG savings over the (IMHO) over-priced and under-built Magma grill options.
So, just HOW did you connect the feet of the Q1200 to the Magma rail mounts?
Did you need to modify the feet in any way? ... or the Magma Rail Mounts?
