I've seen an egg grill, they look to be well made but can't imagine having one on a boat, houseboat with all of the deck space maybe.

I came back recently and promised myself I would bite my tongue, calm down, and besides there is just not enough time to counter or question it all.

A good friend has one of the little Webbers that have been mentioned here, and it is also a great unit. It does very well with lower temps, like for fish. We are often rafted together and divide the food between the two grills depending on the temps we want to cook with. Only real downside I see to the Webber is that you need a way to mount it, and it will blow out
Back to topic: The Q120 I have is 8500 btu, 189 sq inches, dual burner (actually a circular affair) it is now called the Titanium. It gets plenty hot, well over 500 degrees, cooks great steaks and chops] I have had it in pretty windy conditions and no issues.

Those Green Eggs weigh a ton. If that boat ever came to a brief stop. That green egg would be a flying projectile

Try mounting that Green Egg on a rail, like the OP is requesting, and watch the looks you get from your fellow boaters! It looks like some alien cocoon waiting to hatch!

Welcome back, caltecflanc. We're not perfect and, like life, you sometimes have to wade through some pretty thick muck to get to the juicy parts.

This is the key!!! KEEP IT COVERED!!! Mine is 7 years old and still works fine. But I did invest in the sunbrella cover and it has obviously served well. I have the rod holder mounts that are always on the transom. Amazingly it gets a lot of spray back there(planing boat) and still the grill performs well. I have had to replace the regulator but that is probably to be expected after that amount of time. Anyway, whatever you buy get a sunbrella cover is worth the investment.

I have the Dickenson, "Sea-B-Que" and love it. You can order it directly from them in Canada and get it for less. I ordered their new pedistal and had to reinforce it. Not a great design but the pit is great. Large enough for a party and hot enough for anything so be careful not to burn the fish. I went to Home Depot and got a hose and connections from Weber Grills and was able to connect a 10lb tank for pennies.

Dickenson rocks! We have the fitting that slides into a fishing pole holder and use it at anchor all of the time and can then stow when underway.

A friend just gave me his Jackson grill because my Sea-B-Que doesn't hold heat in any wind....

Mike and I were considering placing conventional BBQ bricks/rocks inside for heat retention......

I have that same issue when cooking underway, if I am at anchor usually the boat swings bow to the wind and it's fine. I usually drop it below the rail under those conditions, but it's not mounted. Still looking for a better solution myself...

I got the same issue especially that mine is mounted high on the flybridge where wind is blowing. My solution was pretty simple, added a bag of lava stone in the bbq over the burner. These break the wind in the bbq and keep the heat on. I like the fact that the stones keep the heat even when I turn it off.

Light your bbq on and let it warm up hot and let your junk burn, it won’t take time with the heat.
And when you think stones are too dirty it will cost you 15$ to replace them with new ones.

I started out with a Sea-B Que years ago and it did 'just OK'. it was challenged by wind and uneven heating. I replaced it with a 17 inch round Magma that a friend was ditching since he didn't like propane on his boat.

The Magma did OK in the wind but was so hot that I had difficulty regulating the temperature. I prefer to cook over a slow, even heat and had to prop open the lid to prevent overheating and detect flareups.

This summer, a friend was given a Magma Newport grill in a package deal with a dinghy purchase from a friend who was selling his sailboat. The grill was used 4-5 times and looked like new. My buddy found it was too big for his sailboat after he had already had a Sunbrella cover made for it, so he gave it to me.

This grill is by far the best boat grill I've had. Winds are not an issue with my Newport. The heat and flame control is ideal for my way of cooking. The drip pan is removable for easy cleanup. I have rod holders across the transom and on the side rail so I have lots of placement options.

I had a charcoal Magma that was fantastic, in wind it had a tendency to get fine ash on my food, and carrying charcoal and lighter fluid was a pain. These days I do kabobs and the skewers are long enough I need a rectangular grill to accommodate them.

My Sea-b-que was the best reviewed grill I could find when I purchased my boat and brought it North. Mostly it has been satisfactory plus, except for wind...

That Catalina is a spendy grill, what model do you have?

Buy a Weber Q1000, and get to cooking. Third season on mine, and it still working fine. After 2 kettle grills, the Weber is better. I have a fish cleaning tray in cockpit available to set it on. Cooks evenly, parts available and not expensive. In very windy conditions, it will blow out. I just move it to deck of cockpit, and keep on cooking.

Here is a link with pictures. The Weber is hands down the fav on here. The Q1000 or Q1200 rules. I have yet to hear of anyone going back to Magna.

Best large rail mount grill?

I thought it was a Catalina until I looked up the model number to reply to this post. It's a Newport model A10-918. (Post above edited for accuracy.)
