Up until last week I had a Galley Mate 1500, terrific BBQ.It's now free to anyone who wants it, provided you can dive, maybe a job for Hendo.A boat leaving a mooring in a strong wind took our rail and BBQ with him.

That would certainly save the unsuspecting crabs from a slow death .

Where would that leave someone like Mr. supertramp whose "outdoor BBQ pit" is on the FB?
Rules are like laws...and you're still wondering why and how some come about????? I think not...you are too tuned in...

Rt they was barbe-ing some kind of plain old sea creatures and if they fall overboard you just catch some more. Don't they call that the bounty of the sea.....or is it booty of the sea?
Never had much luck baiting spam to a hook or pot. Besides, barbecued spam on a piece of sourdough, tomatoes, lettuce,,,,pretty good....wouldnt want to loose that overboard.

how bout deep fried spam with sweet tater fries?

Hey I lost only one wing that day

I guess it depends on how how sloppy your food is. The wings marinate 2 days in a secret mixture.

BBQ'ing aboard at the dock is pretty much forbidden in our area. Covered slips in our area is the reason given and as it seems so universal I assume the state Fire Marshal made the call.

However, BBQ facilities complete with tables are provided by the majority of the marinas free of charge off the docks. Some have propane grills while others provide park style grills for your charcoal.

Why must I continue to remind you people (and the southerners here should know better)... Those devices are grills. Neither are hot dogs and hamburgers. Nor do you invite people over for a barbeque. Bar-B-Q is a certain style of cooking or the result of it.

Now please, continue your discussion about grills for your boat.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the big green egg. I was going to build a holder for a green egg and mount it. Is that going to burn my boat down again?

grills???......no Tom this is suppsed to be a family forum. If grills you want come on down to the boardwalk its T shirts and shorts weather and grils everywhere

all kidding aside i have a little fold up cast weber that uses those little propane bottles i use. It's cast so holds the heat in and can go any place i like. Throw it in the dingy for a trip to the beach or for a hike in the woods.

http://www.weber.com/explore/grills/.../weber-q-100-2

I've had this little guy for years above is the link to the new version. I made a sack for it out of a scrap of sunbrella.

I use a magma charcoal fired. It hangs over the transom. At home I have a natural gas fired Falcon. Although I love the absolutely no maintenance Falcon at home, with no tank to fill. We use it year round including winter when we often have to shovel a path across the deck to use it. It isn't as good as the charcoal on the boat. The charcoal Magma is slow to heat, but that just gives me an excuse to have another adult beverage. The charcoal is a bit of a mess. Its not big enough for more than 4 people. 4 - 1 lb. ribeyes fit tight. But I love it. and the food always seems to taste better than on land. That has to be because of the grill not the locale. None of the marinas I have stayed at allow me to use it, but that's OK too. It gives an excuse to fire up the motors and go someplace, even if it a mile away to drop the hook. And the best feature of all, I have made some fish extremely happy with food far better than they would have got unless I was clumsy enough to drop it into the drink.

If the manufacturer calls it a barbecue, that's what it is. If you think they're wrong, take it up with them. But until Dickinson, Magma, etc. start calling them grills, they're barbecues.

We have the Magma round "party Grill size" which is the larger size. We use it a lot, bbq meats, or with a wok on a "wok ring" that holds it with the grill removed. This works well for stir fry or curry. We also have a paella pan that fits just right on top of the grill for paella or doubles as a griddle. We have the optional legs set so it can be brought on shore to use on a table if wanted.

In the summer the cheapest propare BBQ I can find for about 20 Bucks that is thrown away at the end of.summer. In the winter with the stern deck canvas enclosed we use a George Forum electric grill.

I grew up in Hawaii. That's way farther south than northern states like South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, etc. And in Hawaii, they're all called "barbecues."

A lot of the "charter and head boats" working out of the Gulf Shores AL area have a green egg mounted in the cockpit. I'm not sure what they do with them, I guess grill fish for customers at lunch time?
