Rail mounted Webber Grill rec

I remember a couple years ago people were recommending a certain webber bbq gas grill to mount to the Rail on their boats. For Some reason I canít find it in the searches.

Our magna grill that came with the boat has stopped working. Before I buy a $50 regulator replacement I thought Iíd check on the weber recommendations.

Anyone know which Weber Iím thinking of?

Re: Rail mounted Webber Grill rec

Probably this one, you will have to cob some mounts together, I started with my old Magma mounts.
Magma is in my opinion junk, and I have three, none would stay lit.
We grilled yesterday in 25 to 35kt winds, sorry for the poor picture, wind is out of the East, so Sun is right behind us.
Q1200 I think. Buy the hose on Amazon and connect a 10 lb aluminum tank to it, don’t bother with the little 1lb rust Bombs

Th little Weber is so superior it’s a real grill. This one is a few years old, the salt is beginning to get to the aluminum parts, but the burner tube is real SS and still looks new.
I figure conservatively it will last more than 5 years in constant use. I think ours is about three years old.

counterpoint.

I have had the small round magma grill for 15 years.. lights up, stays lit, and spent a grand total of $50 on replacement parts.. . for a 1-3 crew its adequate size and uses minimal propane.

Re: Rail mounted Webber Grill rec

Here's a long thread on the weber. I'm a huge fan of the weber Q. My magma had two settings. The wind blew it out or giant inferno. You can grill bacon on the weber without it flaring up and it stays lit in 30 mph wind. It's also the only grill I've ever had that the electric ignitor still works after a couple years. The sailboat story youtube channel also did a great video on the weber Q for boat use. Make sure to order the griddle for it. The griddle makes great grilled cheese sandwiches and it's awesome for making blackened fish for tacos. Warm up some tortillas and make lionfish tacos with cilantro are amazing at the end of the day with a cold beer.

Another vote for the baby Weber but remove the big plastic arms, they are not needed and you will use a LOT less space on the rail.Click image for larger version

Re: Rail mounted Webber Grill rec

FWIW, we bought a Kuma BBQ some years ago, and mounted it on the side rail (if there is any breeze, it sees it!) of our monohull. In 4 years of use here in the NE Caribb (read....there is always wind) it has never failed to start, stay lit, and cook our food. In a stronger breeze, it does not get as hot as with a lesser wind, but it has always cooked our pork chops, steak,etc. And, being all S/S, there is no rust or corrosion. The salt and UV did finally get to the regulator, and while it was still working, but making weird noises, we replaced it ($50)this year. We bought ours at Budget Marine, a big chandlery chain here in the Caribbean.

Re: Rail mounted Webber Grill rec

A bit dated memory but still worth exploring.

Some years back I saw a relatively large SS round grill at IKEA for all of $50. Granted the price may have creeped up considerably since then (2005-2007ish or thereabouts) but even at $100 IMO it's worth getting. Don't go there often these days but will look it up on my next visit.
