I don't expect this thread to get much traffic, because it doesn't involve safety gear or storms
but it's a topic worth discussing!
Which BBQ is the best? Any tips for the BBQ that are boat-specific?
My vote for best BBQ is the Dickenson Sea-B-Q. It has a bunch of nice features including:
1. An angled plate at the back that keeps your food from accidentally being lost overboard.
2. A grill that is made of wavy nearly solid metal instead of just welded thin rod. This gives good grill marks, makes cleaning easy (they are removable) and acts as a heat diffuser plate for even cooking.
3. The lid is nicely weighted and balanced and stays open when needed, and doesn't open suddenly, even when the boat is heeling and you forgot to secure the lid.
4. Feet included that don't get in the way of rail mounting so you can take is ashore.
Compared to the Magma and force 10 models I've used, this thing is awesome!

My big problem that I hope y'all can help me with, is that mine is rail mounted (as are most) at the stern quarter. Invariably there is some evening breeze and being out there on the rail, the breeze saps a lot of heat from the BBQ.
Does anyone use a wind block or other measures to mitigate this issue?
