I use propane stove and Magma propane bbq, no generator. A lot of the boats at the boat show had electric stoves and funnily enough no generator. Guess they will be on shore power a lot.

Some of the marinas are not allowing use of a gas grill while at the dock. The number is growing. Electric might be a better choice.

Sorry I can't be of help there. We do have gas and that is how I know that there is starting to be a problem with using it.

River Dunes has a ban on it in NC and depending on whose is there Beaufort City Docks does as well.

I have a friend who swears by his George Foreman so much that I took one we don't use at home to the boat as my backup.

Greetings,
I, in fact use an old Magma propane-pre hinged lid days. Along the same lines as the OP's question. HOW is your BBQ oriented? I notice in Mr. Gulfstar 36's picture, it seems to be mounted outboard of the railing. Myself, it's mounted inboard of the railing. My way of thinking is that if the SPAM luncheon meat falls off the grill it will land on the deck rather than in the drink. Thoughts?

RT,

Best I can tell the excuse or problem has to do with the open flame and not where the food might fall. Both times I have been told it is a Fire Department issue. The first time at RD I figured it was due to the fact if you cook on your boat you won't use their facilities. But the Beaufort City dock has no vested interest. So it may be Fire Code.

Greetings,
Hmmmm....fire code. The distance differential between in and outboard mount is only about 1.5' or so. People have open flame inside their boats (LPG ranges). With an electric grill, that SPAM can still flare up into open flame. Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to understand the reasoning. Where would that leave someone like Mr. supertramp whose "outdoor BBQ pit" is on the FB?

Yep, many sailboaters will cook on the grill while motoring up the ICW. I think it is courteous while passing them to warn them to hold their meat.

I have a big Magma propane grill that mounts on a FB railing. It needs rebuilding after years of use and abuse, that's my winter project. Actually last winter's too but it kinda sort worked so got delayed. I bought a Weber Q this summer as a fill in after getting recs on another boating forum and more so after a guy on a Defever that was here for a few months really sold me on it. It out-cooks the fancier Magma in its prime. I still "plan" on rebuilding the Magma, some day, maybe, I think. It definitely looks cooler..

Mr RT, sir.
Back in our sailing days, we kept the BBQ over the railing. One reason was the cockpit was not overly commodious. The main reason, however, was the BBQ used charcoal and we didn't want any stray coals falling on the boat. Our new BBQ is gas and on the flybridge railing.

They make two sizes. We have the smaller one and have cooked for as many as six with it. The bigger one, if they still make it, is considerably larger.
