My wife made a cover for ours and this makes a huge difference.

Thanks all. Appreciate the response. Sounds like the sea Q is something I should look at and maybe a fillet table to set on/mount to.

I have the Monterey Infrared (hot as hell) and have never had a mess, nor has the flame ever gone out. But, that may be because it's transom mounted, and, I don't remember ever using it in anything over 10 kts of wind.

I have the larger Weber Q.
Love it. Lighter grills simply can't retain enough heat for decent red meat charring.

It sits in the back of the aft deck.

I wanted the larger one, as it uses normal propane from my 20lb bottle and had more mass for the above.

I have purchased 2 of the cheap ($99) Orchard Supply Hardware table top stainless steel grills and connect a 5 gallon propane tank to it.
These things work GREAT!
Plus the large tank give more pressure and thus doesn't ever blow out.
After 5 yrs, I threw it away and bought a new one.
Works great!

My system is regulated at the tanks and the system is controlled in the galley. Quick connect from a deck pulled hose to the grill. I removed the regulator from the grill and now I snap on gas when I use.

Cooks good, unlike "Yacht Grills". .

Rtf, the lids on the round Magmas are designed to hook onto the lip of the grill. This allows you to place it where it will act as a wind block. That's why they are not hinged. The one in your photo is hooked on the edge.

I sell Magmas but I have to admit I've never used one.

You guys should know that Magma came out with a bunch of new models this year that are supposed to address a lot of the problems you describe. I haven't heard any feedback on the new ones yet. Actually I'm not sure I have them in stock yet.

That's the first one I've seen that looks like it'll work for me. Thanks for the pictures Mule.

We have a circular Magma LPG/Propane fired, hinged lid, 4 holes in the lid centre. Replacing one which came with the boat and fell apart with rust, we salvaged the cantilever arm which can swing it outboard. Steaks have a great bbq flavor, especially if it catches fire due to a fat buildup.We had a charcoal fired one on the previous boat. Actually, we quite like it.

Old picture ( before Williams makeover ) . It's a dickinson spitfire . I took an old tore up helm seat and used the base along with some starboard . Our deck is pretty big for the size boat and we just move it around . Lash it down when traveling . When too many are on the boat at the dock
(drinking up my rum ) we just sit it out on the walkway .

Mule's installation of the Weber Q is very similar to my friend's on his Defever, except the latter drilled holes through the ends of the legs and bolted it to the prep table. You can get an adapter for the smaller Q that allows you to use the larger tanks; ours looks like the same as Mule's except we have the thermometer which I find handy, and built in small fold out wing "tables" that are handy for staging stuff. It has almost exactly the same cooking area as the big Magma I showed in my pic. On the boat, I covered it up and stashed it in a cubby when not in use to reduce exposure to the elements, salt spray in particular.

blows out in the smallest breeze, unreliable, bla bla bla.

The thing sucks and Magma should be ashamed of ever making it.

I called them and complained and they sent me new grates with bigger holes for free but they charged me for shipping and the grill still sucks.

Did I mention that I am not happpy with the grill??? Or that every time I get on the boat, have a nice cold beer and a thick steak that the grill fails me?
You too, I bought one and have had similar disappointing results. I think it blows out every time. If it did work I'm sure it would drool black grease on the gunnel.

We had the perfect spot for our Weber Q and a source for a aluminum table. Weber is the way to go, we've had Force Ten and Magma's. Get the Weber with the thermometer in the lid, great for slow cooking !

The Weber has been the best all around BBQ that I've found. I really like the disposable tray underneath.
Nice mounts guys!

I once had a grill mounted on the cap rail.
It came to and early and untimely end.
Luckily, I had used it ONCE, so I realized what a mistake it was to have strayed from Weber.

On crossing the Atlantic, I had a bungee cord holding it to the gunnel.

No problem at all. Even with the sea water sloshing around it for days.

Also, the more sheltered location is far better for heat retention.

We had Irish lamb chops yesterday.
So tasty.
