Propane grill on a Pilot

I'm jonesing for a propane grill on my Pilot. But where to store it? I miss the cavernous lockers on my sailboat. Any suggestions for make/model and where you keep and mount it?

I have the advantage of having a vertical stainless steel member over the transom (see the avatar at the left) which supports the bimini. I clamp a Magma grill there and leave it. Unfortunately it is not shown in the avatar pic.

Jack,
I store mine in read hold by trim tab tank. Not great but not to many places to put it.

Use the search option on this site. The Weber 1200 is the best out there. Anyway, search for Weber 100, 120, 1200. There are pictures.

Order a fish cleaning table from Marine Connection for about $65. The stalk and leveler will level out your grill in the rod holder. Use stainless u bolts over the legs into the table. Much better than any Magma for a lottttttt less.

The new 1200 series has a split grill, easy to clears in the sink, has optional griddle(s) also split in 1/2. Has foil inserts for drip pan so no mess. Home Depot, Lowes, Amazon has em

I no longer have my pilot but that is exactly what I did with mine. A GOOD cover is worth what you pay at WM($60). Don't by those crappy nylon ones....they weather in the span of less than a year. I had a cover(that recently blew away because I left it off) for over 10 years and it protected the same grill for the same time. And both still had plenty of life in them.

I store my Dickinson Marine Large propane grill under the aft cockpit hatch. When in use, it is mounted on a cutting board (~3ft long) I have mounted on the transom. I clamp the stove to the cutting board. I also store the cutting board under the cockpit.

I have a new Magma kettle grill and am also trying to figure out where to store it. I don't have a generator on my boat, so there is a fairly large empty space in the starboard aft section of the engine room where (I think) the generator would normally go). I may try to figure a way to put a retention net or other means to store stuff there but keep it away from the shaft and other engine components. It seems like that spot would be a perfect fit for the grill and accessories.

Likewise, kept in storage under the rear dinette seat when not in use. I like the Dickinson because it takes my long skewers for K-bobs and the round grills don't. I have a little plate mounted off my stern that holds (one at a time) the grill, two down riggers, or the generator. Because I can't leave the grill mounted while I fish I put it away, I fish a lot more hours a day than I grill :-) The round stern on the Willard limits what you can do off the back at the same time, and the fish cleaning table drops onto the same plate.

Or...you could just go for one of these. We love ours, and the beauty of it is, no gas needed, and you can sit or store it virtually anywhere it will fit.

Cobb cookers

That's a cool grill. Have you ever cooked a whole chicken on it? Can you sit it on a plastic table and not melt it?

While I realize some may be worried about theft.....but.....just keep the damn thing mounted up and ready!!!!! I have never had a grill stolen....knock on wood. OTOH, I don't worry about where to store it!!!

New grill rig

I took MULE's advice and went with the Weber 1000, plus added a temp gauge. This will mount to a rod holder on the gunnel. Can't wait!

I made my own table out of PVC board. Bolted the legs of the grill to it and bought 2 pair of rail mount clamps from Mantus. SS U-bolts would have worked too, at a fraction of the cost.

The advantage (in addition to saving $$) of a DIY table is that I got exactly the size I wanted. I also made a 3/4" high edge all the way around, so nothing will roll off the table.

I don't have any pics yet, it's still in storage waiting to be installed on the railing.

Next to the PVC bedspreads and pillow cases. Try Home Depot if that fails.

Otherwise contact Marine Liquidators in Fort Pierce, Fl. Ask for Roland or whoever. They have, for less than $70 a fish cleaning table with a male rod holder insert that can be leveled in all directions. Two u bolts, and a Weber 1200 for <$200 and you will have the best deal in the free world on a boat grill. Tell Hobart sent ya.
My last house I had a $3000 burner, big grill and cabinet set up. I like this better. Beats the Magmas (yeah, I have had a few of those) into the ground in all ways.

See post 16.
