My Weber Q is 6 years old. Replaced the grate and cover after 5 years and it's still going strong.

I have tons of room on my flybridge so I added a pellet grill.

It is awesome.

A dock neighbor had one on his Defever; he had bolted it to a piece of starboard then had that in turn bolted to some Magna rail mounts. He really touted me on it, and I had read good reviews on another boating forum. We never have got around to rebuilding the Magma, the parts come to about what I paid for the Q.

The Q is a simply great grill, stands up well to wind, very adjustable, etc etc. Note that Weber explicitly says it is not for RV or boat use. I am not sure why they say that other than perhaps the mounting issue. Highly recommended.
I will note that we are still using this same grill regularly, like someone else did we have replaced the grate once. So it is now tied with the Magma for tenure, and working better.

Tell me about this. What grill? How hot does it get on the exterior? Is it rail mounted or otherwise?

I bought one of these last year. No need for fuel or charcoal, the only setback you need to plan well in advance as it takes longer to cook a meal. It is more of a wet application oven than a traditional grill but the meals we have cooked on it thus far have been great and the clean up is great.

I'll take a pic tomorrow. It's set in where the p.o. mounted a cooler. it's a grill so I wouldn't suggest sitting on it. Currently i just have it sitting on its legs. I will eventually build it into a outdoor grilling area on the deck over the main berth.

Bought a Kuuma rectangular propane grill about a year ago. Mounted it more or less permanently on the aft cockpit railing using one of several optional mounting systems offered by Kuuma. Bought an aftermarket Sunbrella cover for it. Has a thermometer in the top, which is useful. So far, works great. Starts with one or two pushes on the red button and hasn't blown out yet. I think Defender sells them, although I bought mine locally. I'd recommend it.

So you have to plug a pellet grill/smoker into 110V AC?

Iím pretty sure I posted these before, but dang if I can find it.

The Weber is our go to grill, and several people have moved to the Weber after seeing how well ours works.

We set it on the fish cleaning station and it works great as well as provides additional space while cooking.

Cheers

We use the Weber Q as well. Itís on a cart that we keep in the cockpit. We can either grill there or move it to a dock. Wotks great.

The people on a Defever 44 that turned us on to the Webber had that same set up, and had drilled and bolted the legs to the table.

If I was going gas, I'd vote with the Weber entourage. However, I've never chosen to have a propane grill (nor charcoal) on a boat. We have both Gaggenau and Kenyon electrics and love them both.

Took one of those on our last cruise to the Bahamas. By the time we got back, the stainless was completely discolored, but it was still grilling like a champ.(Just buy a cover for it so nobody sees when you are not grilling with it!).

We have a galleymate on a rod holder mount. By far the best barbecue you could get. Never blows out, high quality construction. Expensive to get into the states from Australia since they are no longer being imported but they will do it if you call. Mine was a gift from a friend after we were talking barbecues.

Another vote for the Weber Baby Q. I've hade both the Kettle type Magma as well as the rectangular type. Wes not impressed with either of them. I have been using a Weber Baby Q aboard for the past 10 years with different type mounts on different boats.The most recent, I removed the Magma rail mounts and attached them to a base made of some scrap oak I had. I drilled holes in the feet of the grill and through the oak base to install quick release detent pins. I think this winter I will copy the design but make it out of Starboard material as it is a bit lighter and easier to clean.

I've been checking the Weber out after seeing so many recommendations, and it looks like a pretty good way to go.
