BBQ Grill

Hello All, looking at a very neccessary upgrade, a BBQ grill. I am not sure which would be best for mounting. I have a sundeck and a full eisenglass enclosure. I would love to go with the Magma Catalina but I am not sure about mounting on the teack railing and there are little stainless support to mount that large. I do think I can mount the circular Magma on the Swim Platform/Boarding ladder.. thoughts? Can anyone provide a pic of their set ups?

If the stern roof does not dirtly over hang and roll up the canvas you might be able to.

I bought a SS grill at Lows, that sits on a self held by regular shelf brackets. The stern roof stop short about 2 ft covering the rail, with the canvas rolled, has not been a concern. We never BBQ with the canvas down. In the winter we use a GorgeForman electric grill.

I have one of the round propane models sold by West Marine and probably made by magma. I like it and have it permanently stowed on a rail on the sundeck.
I think a square grill would be better, but I'm satisfied with this one. We do use it alot.

We have one of these Cobb cooker grills, and their "cool on the outside" feature makes it easy to handle and move around. Cobb America : The Tabletop Cobb Premier Portable Charoal Grill and Cooking System

Our Magma propane kettle-style cooker, installed on the flybridge rail, has a bad habit of blowing out and we've rarely used it.

Blue Heron, If you decide to go with a Magma, I'd love to have the opportunity to quote you on it.

I'd recomend the unit the dwhatty has as the mopunting is stable and secure. We have the round Magma unit and have found it to be somewhat frustrating as there is only the single point mounting bracket and is not as stable as the rectangle unit with two mounting points.
