Grill Fail

I hate Magma's, I have three of them, one round one and two of the box type, one is "Infra red"
None of them will stay lit worth a darn in any wind. I gave up and based on Cotemar's experience bought a Q1200. It stays lit, plus I love the battery powered igniter, my Magma's igniters quit working soon after purchase.
I never did figure out a safe place to store those little 1lb propane bottles, so I bought an adapter hose and mounted a 10 lb aluminum tank under the grill, much happier now.

Weber works much better, and is about half the price too.

Re: Grill Fail

Here is my custom dual 16.4 oz propane storage bag that holds my tanks high and dry over the bow rail. If a tank leaks it goes right overboard.

Re: Grill Fail

You can replace the regulator with a simple ball valve for gas. It's easy to control the flame (and you can really get a hot flame for steaks!) and when you turn it off it's safely shut off.

I have a Dickenson BBQ and I must say it is very well made. Over 5 years of heavy use and not a spec of rust. All the parts are SS or brass fittings. The only complaint is the burner eventually rots out after a few years, but it may be user error as I cook with salt and sometimes put the flame way up to sear a steak (see above).
