Best BBQ for a sailboat

Was looking for recommendations on a bbq grille for a Catalina 27. Something that mounts to the stern pulpit.

I have a Kuuma Stow-N-Go. Works great.

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
Have a Force 10. Quite happy with it as well. Has a cover so we can put the baked potatoes on while we're heeled.

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.

An 8 hour old post about BBQ's and no CD to be found. WTH?

We have the little round dude, runs off single cans of propane.

It is convenient.
It is too small to handle any serious work and 4 people for dinner may mean 2 shifts on the Q if you are doing the veggies as well. Our last boat came equipped with the same thing, except it did not have the built-in lid holder which truly added to the excitement, just try flipping 4 chicken breasts one-handed, on a 12in grill while holding a smoking hot lid in your "free" hand. More than one piece ended up at the bottom of the Pacific

Some day, when I have lots of cash, I will get one of those log-style SS units. Looks like they would have better heat distribution, be closer to the rail and have more capacity.

Timely question. Just yesterday I looked at a the May 2008 Practical Sailor review. Sovereign Bravo, Galleymate 1000, both Australian and both expensive, and Magna Chef's Mate Connoisseur, the lowest price, were recommended. Magna Catalina Gourmet Series was best choice. An earlier review had rated the Magna Catalina best choice and Force 10 the budget buy. Kuuma was not reviewed.

I've no complaints with my basic Magma kettle style grill. Basic and gets the job done.

Just picked up the Kuuma for grilling on the picnic tables at the marina.

sailortjk1 has a spectacular aura about sailortjk1 has a spectacular aura about
Magma Catalina, is what we have and we like it.
We could use a little more cooking room on occasion, but its served us well for the past 5 seasons.

BE CAREFUL OF FLARE UP on any of these grills. Some greese drippings on the burners and you can get a nasty flare up real quick.

What are the thoughts on charcoal vs. propane ? I prefer the taste of charcoal - would like to use a Weber Smokey Joe on the boat, great little grille.

Dealing with charcoal and the hot coals afterwards are a PITA on the boat.
