Re: BBQ Grills

I did some research on this topic last year before the season.
Based on reviews, I went with the Weber Q1200 and it has been awesome.
We grill out 6 of 7 nights and it is the best by far.
There is a thread with mounts mentioned that I bought and adapted to the Weber. I will see if I can find it or the mounts. It takes a little work, but looks like it was made that way and easy to remove from the rail if you want to.

I found the mounts. They are a Magma number:

Not a fan of Kuuma. The bottom is flat and although it has a grease drain slot along the middle grease pools and catches fire.

Also the flame shroud is screwed down making it impossible to clean under it. I took the screws out and dropped some cotter pins in to hold it in place but itís still a sign of a bad design.

Cooks evenly and rarely blows out, I will give it that.

Re: BBQ Grills

On my power boat with a very large bilge area, I can use the Weber Q1200 sitting on a child's folding table in my larger aft deck. The grill is better than any marine grill I have owned, works like a Weber should (Weber just makes great grills...period!).

One aspect of the Weber you will like is the even heat. Just as BMW is obsessed with making a car with 50/50 weight distribution front and back (have fun by watching new BMW owners try and find the battery), so Weber is obsessed with balanced even heat.

Based on a recommendation in another thread on this topic, I bought a black one. Some who love their Weber on board also said the other coloured tops can turn dark or black as the smoke comes out. The best way to avoid this discolouration is to purchase a black Q1200:
