Bareboat chartering the Med with my Italian friends we've always brought their marine grill, his California born wife insisted he buy it and cook everything but pasta on it. Something about keeping the oven off below during hot summer charters and saving water by reducing the number of greasy pans to clean.

Personally, I agree with CapTim and Remetau, good friends and grilled food go great together. Plus, my Italian buddy is a master Octupus hunter. Nothing like polippo on the grill.

There is a difference regarding charcoal and fire starter in Europe. I haven't ever come across american style compressed charcoal, bags usually contain pieces of burned wood which burn very quickly so often just a small starter cube does the job. Much less "toxic" than our starter fluid. That being said, my Italian buddy absolutely loved using the starter fluid when he chartered in Baja. Couldn't believe it could be so easy to start a fire.
