Products and price$ do evolve! We purchased our Magma for not too much over $200, six or seven years ago; at a WM no less! Rail mounts and full width front of grill slip-on cutting pad included. Also came with two regulators for side mount propane canisters (1st one still working fine, spare in storage). Canvas cover was a few bucks extra. In 2008, total bill was way under $300.

I've so far purchased twice from Parks. Fair prices, really good assistance regarding classic anchor light connections I needed. He's quickly become my Go-To marine parts dealer!

Thanks, Art! I'm sure he is an honorable man and I've seen posts from other members who have frequented his online store.

Heck, the Magma grill covers are as much as I paid for my stainless grill.....sure it is all quality stuff....but even living aboard I can't justify some of those prices for as much as I grill....or even would grill if they were perfect.

OK -
I've got to come clean on something... the cover is not a "Magma" cover... but rather it's just a lowly WM brand cover. They were simply out of Magma covers day we purchased! WM cover lasts well, and, life goes on -

Weber Q (now the 1100) for 4 years. Perfect for us. Paid $99 on sale in Walmart. Much better than our previous Magma at 1/4 the price.

I sure gotta want, not need for the new Weber 1000-1200. Do not need it, the Q100 I have is fine but the split 2 peace grill and also the optional split griddle has some appeal. I am drilling a small hole in the cover for the probe of a chef thermometer.

We dumped our Magma grill for a George Foreman electric grill. Kept the rail mount and made a flag staff out of it.

Ha! That's a good one. When we sold our previous boat I told the buyer I was throwing in the Magma grill just for kicks. He started to thank me but I told him not to bother, I wasn't doing him any favors by giving him that grill.

We actually have one of those. They do an amazing job!

We also have a regular George Foreman cooker and a rotisserie and love all three of them!

West Marine has these for $50 off for those of you that like to burn your food or light it 10 times during a cooking session.

in my experience the covers are not quality material 8 months in the Florida Sun and they are all bleached out and falling apart

many covers these days are really bad...bought chair covers at Lowes 2 years ago..almost lasted 2 years...the last set didn't last 6 months in NJ...really bad.

The Weber cover I have for my little non-Weber grill is doing OK after 2 years as is the marina Weber grill cover...but NJ isn't Fla for sure.

Talking covers' quality...


We always keep our 14'8" Crestliner tow-behind-boat runabout on trailer in open lot at marina. I've purchased covers from $150 to $39. The $150 covers are lucky to last two years in sun. The $39 one from WallyWorld lasts just as long. $150 cover touts all kinds of last ability. $39 WallyWorld cover says little. Go figure!


PS: WM BBQ cover that is always outside to the elements is 7 yrs old and doing well. Albeit we do dock in covered berth; but, BBQ on rear of boat is toward outer most end of roof cover. In direct sun when we are cruising or anchored.

My latest magma tattoo. Barely tapped the edge of the lid just above its 4" white hotspot. Got this beauty seconds after chastising the kids to not play near the grill! Immediately after it happened I placed the nearest cold beverage against it and kept my mouth closed. No one ever knew it happened....well until my bro noticed it had a nice blister on it!

Does anyone else on here use one of these. We got one many years ago at a boat show, and they have been improved and had additional attachments added over time. We swear by ours as it is so simple. Cool enough on the outside and underneath to set on any table anywhere, (after initial combustion phase of 20min), and will work in any wind. No gas or electricity needed, just carbonettes or the special fuel blocks, and 3 firelighters to set it going, and one just tips the ash next morning overboard, and ready to go again with a recharge. Worth considering..?

Looks like fun! Many good cooking and other features. Might be smallish cook area for more than two.


Without being tied tight to railing I'd be nervous of hot coals... especially if big wake came while I was taking a break in the head, or something.


Don't think fellow boaters would be pleased to see me cast coal dregs into water... could be sneaky bout that... but that's just not me and an effort to accomplish it that way anyway.

I am impressed. The gas model would work perfect. The charcoal model is only 8.8 pounds so the gas might be 11-12 lb. Easy to fabricate a rail mount. My Weber is 30lb. This looks like pretty good answer.
