Bbq etiquette

So, with the recent, and frequent threads on generator etiquette, I was thinking about my BBQ.

The BBQ we use smokes...allot. I guess all bbq's smoke allot. I also love barbecuing on my boat.

Has anybody ever had a fellow boater complain ab out their BBQ smoke???

Do you curtail your BBQ use???

Around here...most marinas prohibit BBQs on boats so not real common...and the anchor out crowd usually more them to the beach.


Never had a complaint..usually "can we join you" are the comments when I do.

Kevin, it's a matter of perspective. I was in the narrow ICW just north of Miami when I came up behind a sail boat with his grill smoking on the back rail. I did the courteous thing. I got on the radio, and said, "I'm coming around. Hold your meat." Now, wasn't that nice?

My next door neighbour tried burning the hair off a goats head once on the BBQ .
I threatened to bury him in his own garden.
BBQ don't worry not as bad as a smoking genny or a stinky holding tank

What about Music?

What about kids playing?

Using the head?

Cooking with garlic?

What about starting up to leave and running the windless very early?

Smoking a cigar?

Smoking a turkey?

Nude sunbathing?

Showering on deck?

What about hull slap?



Locus, what about locus??!!


I think the world is too sensitive, If the normal sounds/ smells of boating, camping, bowling, rock climbing, surfing, star gazing.... bother you then go away and don't do it.

Leave me alone, I'm a libertarian with a gun and a generator.

That has been our experience on the SE US Coast. Also, lot of marinas provide grills on land to discourage the BBQ's on the boats.

At anchor, we've never had someone complain but have a had a few comments about what's for dinner. Don, What's your other boat?

I get rather gassy after a few draft beers, and since sound travel better over water and with close quarters anchorages, the lofty aromas are double trouble. I think I have been banned in a fe SE marinas for the practice.

My grill is semi-permanently mounted on the side of the cockpit and gets used a LOT.

I've never had a gripe about the smell or smoke of food I'm cremating.

We anchor out a lot and BBQ very often and never had a complaint. We run our generator and never had a complaint. Been doing this for nearly 20 years and never had a complaint.

I had a "friend" on board who said I wasn't paying enough attention to her. (It was my niece!) She really has an inflated ego...

Well, I for one find it amusing that people will bitch about a generator you can hardly hear, or smell, and not complain about a bbq that I guarantee they can smell!

Our harbor has a no BBQ rule like others but I and others ignore it. My thinking is that they were meaning charcol briquette bbq's because of a real or preceived fire risk.

What I call a BBQ is in my opinion a outdoor cooking appliance, and I'll stick with that if ever questioned.

As far as at anchor I almost never have to share an anchorage with another boater., but then again this is Alaska. Tonight is no exception I am sitting all alone in Hog Bay, having spent a great day on the water. There is nobody for miles around, so I'm not too worried about the smelll or noise.

I think few people find a grill's smoke to be bothersome or offensive, plus it's something they're use to on land as well. Now if I saw the wind was blowing my smoke directly in their face I'd apologize and ask it it was bothering them. That said, our grills on board are all electric and very little smoke.
