Ah! That's the "hook" I meant, earlier.

I don't remember having to slightly unscrew the knob, but we got it a long time ago...

Greetings,
OF COURSE! The washer in the lid. I'd forgotten all about that...

A guy down in Florida makes them in all sizes, we wanted a big one that would support the Weber gas grill, tools, platters and be easy to clean. Oh ya, it also is a great fish cleaning station.
Remove the two wing bolts, and the cleaning station comes right off and we can put the Scotty down rigger on.
During the winter we remove it all for the Canvas to cover everything.

By the way, the Weber grill is the only way to go. My experience with Magma's or any other Stainless grill for that matter have not been pleasant. This is the grill we had on the Coach before we got the boat. Its now 7 years old. Once or twice a year I remove from the boat while the power washer is out and spray the daylights out of it.

And on this trip, Tom on ASD is so impressed that they are searching for one themselves.
Me too. Weber is the only way to go.

See pix on this forum of the Weber 1200 I have on my rail. It has a drip tray and disposalable liners for same. I am a fan and have never had a mess that was not my fault. Far superior to any "Marine-Boating" grill I have seen. I live in a Marina, have seen a lot of grills. Here is a big deal, THEY COOK GOOD, unlike many of the shiney marine grills I have experienced, some cost hundreds more.

I use one of these at home. I agree, they do cook very well. I'm thinking on placing it on our boat. Do you use a 6 gallon tank or the smaller screw in cartridges? Thanks....

Ok, new to the boats and about to leave the shoreline behind....working on this project with a buddy who has a fabrication business.....looks like this....I am going to use the Sam's club knock off mini Kamado grill instead of the Green Egg one.....the main support will clamp to existing rails somehow...have not figured it out yet. I need/want the ability to smoke/bbq with charcoal. Thoughts?

I have a mini that Iíve smoked shoulder and seared rib steaks on, but typically off the boat on a picnic table. The things you need to deal with. First, they get seriously hot on the bottom. Donít set them on gel coat. I had a thick stone tile with me and it was still borderline. Second is that they are heavy, even the mini. I had not thought about a rail mount because of the weight, but maybe you will make it work.

I will say this. They work wonderfully. My mini came home one winter as I donít like it away from me where it can be easily stolen. I cook on it as much at home as my large egg. I like having more than one ready and at hand! Has not been back to the boat for some time.

Here is the knock off from Sams Club
It has a stand of sorts, but my plan is to support the weight with a main rod and have it lashed to railings for upright support....will let you all know when I am done...I want it to be easily removable also.

We don't need the larger models but they may be cleaner.
We drilled two 1/8" holes in our drip tray and use wire to hang a soup can under them, no problem.

We also cut down a 15" pizza stone to fit our 13" Magma and lay that on the grill. Great pizza and the juiciest meat ever as it cooks in it's own juice, no flare ups and very little grease ever goes in to the soup can

Go back to post 57. That is the best setup I have found. The Weber 1200 U Bolted on a fish cleaning table is as good as it gets. It holds heat and does not glow red like a Magma. Magmas are known to jump off their mounts, Chase you around the deck just to burn you to the bone. Or just brush up against it.
The Weber only weighs 35lb and should be hung outside the rail. They have a disposable drip pan, very clean. The EGG has got to be heavy + the aggravation of charcoal ash.
Check with Marine Liquidators for $60-70 leveling fish cleaning table that plugs into rod holder. Griddle accessory option available for Weber. I have had multiple grills over the years. Weber 1200 for a boat is the best from my experience. Just not shiny and yachtie looking but it sure cooks good. The black blob on my boat pic to left is my covered Weber.

Weber Q's have always been my grill of choice for all the reasons mentioned. We have been struggling to mount, until now. Thanks for the mounting info.

Have to admit, our old Magma has never turned red, jumped off it's mounts, nor chased me around the deck...



FWIW, Magma sells fish-cleaning tables that fit in rod holders. In fact, just the rod-holder adjustable mounts, if you like; I screwed one onto a teak tray so one of our Happy Hour tables looks less like a fish-cleaning table.

Don't have photo. Should take one. Our Magma has been rail mounted for 9 years. Never had any trouble nor drips off the catch pan. I do use lightweight, disposable, vented/fluted metal inserts when grilling sloppy food. Great for grilling vegies too.


Just fire her up. Place on low medium or high flame; depending on food type and heat need. Close the lid. Survey food at time spans. Serve. Eat. YUMMMMMY!

Our circular Magma Grill is on a cantilever arm,which puts it over water or over the swim step. One or 2 nervous moments with food rolling on the grid,but no mess on the boat.
All it needs now is a new ss plate over the burner(stamped out of thin ss flat plate),a mere $75,replacing the badly rusted original.
