Medium-rare is my preference too, but you and Al have grills, and I don't. So, who do you think should start cookin'? ... Wait a minute! Your boat is faster than mine. I'll need at least an hour's head start for any chance to arrive at Al's marina anytime near when you will arrive. ... Let's agree to use your already-tested grill ... while Perla prepares the Margaritas and I break out the IPAs.

Ray, I'll be the large radar target (being a steel boat) and with the yellow pilothouse roof/stack, ahead of you. Surely, you know "the drill."

I bet he's used to that view by now...



...and after the Asparagus Festival, so will I.

I've seen those, but never used one. Wouldn't it fill up the galley / kitchen with smoke?

OK, here is something for you wussies to get your BBQing fix when you are afraid to go outside.

The Original Stovetop Smoker

I have one that really works well. Great for smoking baby back ribs or salmon. The chips are available in various woods for different flavors. There are several recipes.

The lid is sealed. What little smoke escapes any kind of exhaust fan can handle. It no fan, open it on the back deck until the smoke dissipates. With the folding handles it takes very little storage space.

I know they make charcoal boat grills but ash, etc. is an issue so we are, alas, sticking with propane even though I dislike it! I love grilling on real charcoal!!
Aside from safety issues, there's no reason you can't use a charcoal grill on a boat. If you are confident you can handle charcoal cooking safely, go ahead with it. Charcoal is much safer to store than propane.

The fire risk increases for gasoline powered boats, but the real danger in a marina is that a fire can easily destroy several boats, the docks, etc.

I used a charcoal fired grill for years. It mounted in a flush rod holder in the gunnel and was over the side. When finished just turn the handle to flip it over and dump the coals into the water. Lined it with foil, so little clean up other than the grate. I haven't seen one for awhile.

Most marinas on Lake Michigan have posted rules against BBQ on board. Some enforce it, some look the other way. Private marinas tend to be the most strict in enforcement. Shore facilities are always available. Locals who do grill on deck are typically courteous and take the wind direction into account if they are parked next to another occupied boat. Transients are another story...primarily Loopers. We have a rail mounted unit, and a small portable (both propane) that I take to the shore facilities when other boaters might be impacted by our smoke.

A couple of years ago anchored at Sucia Island there was a beautiful center cockpit sailboat close to us. It seemed like it was Mom,Dad, Daughter and new son in law. In the evening they were BBQing on a charcoal grill on the aft deck. The son in law kicked over the little Weber spilling hot coals on the teak. You can use your imagination on how up set Dad was. I sure every boat in the bay heard it. Go for the gas.

You have two pages of answers... There are more effective ways of keeping your original post on track other than calling folks stupid. Figure it out!

I don't think anyone can argue that meat cooked over charcoal isn't tastier than meat cooked over gas. Having to carry briquettes, worrying about them absorbing moisture from the air, and having to dump the ash "somewhere" makes charcoal unacceptable. Dumping it over the side used to be acceptable, but it isn't anymore. On my Bayliner I was never out for more than four days at a time (no shower), and stored my charcoal in an airtight bucket with lid on. I left the rest of the bag at home (inside) to keep it dry. I have a new Dickinson Spitfire in the box waiting for the new season, the small one, and hope it will bake as well as grill since I too have an electric stove top and microwave installed. To be replaced with a gas stove with oven. Better predictability of cooking heat (looking at the flame), a real oven, and I won't have to turn the stereo up to cover the noisemaker while cooking. More heat, more quiet, no ash, no bag of briquettes... Easy choice!

That's one of the charms of TF ... Oh, who asked what the difference was between electric & gas?

What's next? Banning bonfires on the beach? No roasting marsh mellows? We are a long way from hacking down trees to build your own cabin folks.

Skipper Dude where are you?

So nobody leaves the dock? Nothing better than being on the hook with the grill of your choice deployed. (insert gratuitous MP type pictures here):

We love using our propane BBQ at anchor but are not allowed to use it at a dock. Marine rules and local ordinance, same as Craig. It uses completely different propane bottles than a propane galley would (if we had one). No big deal to carry a few of the small bottles it uses.

It is technically against the law for us to grill at our condo because we can't get the grill the legally required distance from the building (tiny condo backyard).

The little green cans offend me, so I replaced them with a small (1.5 gallon) propane cylinder, it is equal to twenty some odd little green cans, and you can refill it. The hose to connect it is under $25 and no more little green non-refillable cans. At $3 a little green can, that's about $75 worth of propane. It's an environmentally friendly thing in my opinion. I figure the aluminum propane cylinder paid for itself in two fillings and you never inconveniently run out while cooking.
