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.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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.

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