Portable BBQ
 
I am about to replace my old rail mounted BBQ. I'm looking to see which of the modern portables works best. Thanks.

Get a Dickinson Sea-B-Que. I have the small, but kinda' wish I'd gotten the larger one even though the small is big enough for me and my wife and is less problematic to stow.

I poked through the web extensively reading all the threads I could find on marine bbqs and though this brand is not mentioned as often as Magma, every comment I found was positive and I have been very happy with my choice.

I think you'd have to pay a lot more to get any better grill.

I've got the Magma Newport... and have been very happy with it.

Love my Magma even more now that I figured out you need to point the fuel inlet pipe down wind. It kept blowing out on me until I tried this. I haven't had that issue since learning this little trick.

Just to add that SeaQues have legs for use ashore as well, and I haven't experienced the uneven heat and blow outs you'll find complaints of with some Magma models.

Im with saildog
Magna Newport here also. We rarely use our stove/ oven as it can do almost everyhing that can do as well.

I've never had the grill blow out, and I've even used it while under sail :D The uneven heat issue usually has to do with poor maintenance.
