Do rail mounted grills make a mess?

Do they drip onto the deck?
We have one but haven't used it yet.

Was just thinking about how our big grill at home has a big drip tray under it.

I don't have one and have been looking at them. That is a damn smart question and one I liked to know myself.

I had a small one set rail clamp so it was over the water somewhat, it didn't drip grease but it did get greasy pretty quick please it with oven cleaner.

We have a Dickenson mounted on a teak rail. It has a small drip tray built into the bracket. No problems with drips or heat.

Go to Walmart and buy an automobile trunk liner carpet. Cut out a square a bit larger than the grill and place it on the deck under the grill when you are using it.

Any stove has splatter depending on the food cooking. Some stoves catch drips in a pan, some in the grill bottom and some drip. Depends on the design. I had one on a fishing boat (30 years ago) that hung off the stern, over the water. When done it swiveled and dumped the ash, etc., over the side. Probably illegal now.

I have a Dickenson rail mount on Seeker and love it. It has a small catch pan that came with it that takes care of the drips I've had so far. That said I mostly cook for 1or 2, what you cook like burgers will make a difference. Try it out you will soon see !! Jim

I have a magma round grill and I put a fiberglass cafeteria tray on the deck under it when I grill.

Our rail mounted Magma had a drip tray or capture . Most if not all grills do... look up the various models and see! I can't imagine any grill for any use not having one..

We have a Magma Kettle grill pole mounted over the swim platform. I rotate it over the side as much as possible. It makes a mess cooking burgers. Grease splatter hits the deck and swim platform. It has a catch tray with no way to drain it except tilting it into the water. If you do dump it by tilting, the wind better be blowing away from the boat. We don't need the larger models but they may be cleaner.

Been using mine all week.

It does have a small leak in one corner of the drip tray.

A couple drops might hit the deck if I have it angled to better block the wind, but a wet, warm, soapy paper towel swipes it up no big deal.

Have one of these for 4-years now. No rust, no mess, cooks great. Much less expensive than a "marine" bbq.

Mine cost $80.

Lowe's Master Forge grill and I bolted on a bait cutting station rod holder support that someone had tossed.

Same basic grill as a marine Magna but definitely the stainless is eithervlower grade or less polished. For 1/3 the price, I could live with that.

For liveaboards with limited storage, rail mounted are one way to find anther unused spot....in my case except when trolling....

This is the one we currently have.
And that's what I'm afraid of.
I'm working too hard sanding and scraping prepping to paint and once it's ever finally done I don't want to mess it up with grease from the grill.

I like the idea of putting something down under it on the deck.

I'm also thinking we might need an upgrade later to a different type.

Our boat doesn't have any sst rails so I built a stand for ours . It's from an old helm chair and a piece of starboard . I set it off on the dock when cleaning it up .

I have the Magma rectangular grill mounted on the bow SS rail. I do line the drip tray w/ aluminum foil which makes for easier clean-up. No drips at all. That tray will leak some grease if not lined.

Thanks, I'm pretty sure we're going to end up with that kind or one like it and I'm going to remember to tell hubby to do that.

Our Magma stainless kettle grill made so much mess down the side from its upper deck railing location on our Selene that we stopped using it. Would look for one that collects the fat rather than letting it drip out of the bottom. Be careful of flare-ups if the fat container gets full and overheated!! I think the best approach if possible is a deck mounted unit with adequate heat resistant material beneath and far enough away from flammables..
